15 decembrie 2010 @ Expirat & OtherSide Club (Bucuresti)

in Expirat : FREESTYLERS, D-Laid, Bully

in OtherSide : Optick, Marika, Greeg

Cu 4 albume deja lansate, ("We Rock Hard", "Pressure Point", "Raw As Fuck", "Adventures in Freestyle” ), 5 compilatii, cu peste 50 de release-uri si o cifra impresionanta de albume vandute, culminand cu alegerea lor pentru a mixa una din compilatiile Fabric Live, Freestylers sunt considerati adevarati pionieri ai muzicii.

Matt Cantor, crescut alaturi de nume ca Public Enemy, Arthur Baker, Frankie Knuckles, Mantronix and Prodigy, admite ca e cam dificil sa incerci sa incadrezi Freestylers intr-un anume gen: "It’s pretty tricky trying to sum us up. Our sound is pretty raw, raw and very instant. Basically it’s like breaks for the masses, but as we’ve both got pretty eclectic tastes we bring a whole spectrum of influences from the seventies onwards."

Aston Harvey, care se caracterizeaza ca fiind in tinerete "the original junglist", cu o dieta ce continea nume precum Public Enemy, Afrika Bambaataa sau The Jungle Book, isi completeaza colegul prompt: "The Freestylers sound is rooted in hip hop but has evolved into a unique British concoction, taking in everything from dancehall to reggae, electro to soul and breakbeat to drum and bass. Hip hop heads come to see us. But so do ravers, reggae fans… it’s quite mad really – two funky white boys bringing all these people together"

In 1996, DJ-ii si producatorii britanici Matt Cantor, Aston Harvey si Andrew Galea si-au unit fortele pentru a forma grupul Freestylers. Matt si Aston pun in practica o idee a casei lor de discuri, Freskanova, si anume formarea unei trupe cu 11 membrii: 2 producatori (Cantor si Harvey), un scratch DJ Jason Tunbridge (Mad Doctor X), un chitarist (Tony Ayiotou), baterist (Clive Jenner), basist (Joe Henson), 2 MC (MC Navigator si Tenor Fly) si 3 breakdanceri (Coza, Marat, Tim).

Discografia celor de la Freestylers contine 4 albume, 5 compilatii si 18 single-uri. Acestia au lansat primul album, "We Rock Hard", in 1998, inregistrand succese atat in Marea Britanie cu single-ul "B-Boy Stance", cat si in Statele Unite, unde piesa "Don’t Stop" a urcat pana pe locul 10 in Billboard dance chart si "Here We Go" a devenit un clip MTV Buzzworthy.Peste 150.000 de copii au fost vandute in SUA, albumul intrand in top 30 Billboard Heatseeker chart. Al doilea album, "Pressure Point", lansat in 2001, a fost si el recunoscut de iubitorii muzicii de profil, ajungand in top 20 Billboard dance chart prin intermediul piesei "Get Down Massive".

In 2002 si 2003, grupul a lansat single-uri si sub denumirea de "Raw as F**k", care mai tarziu a dat numele celui de-al treilea album al acestora. "Adventures in Freestyle" este ultimul album scos de cei de la Freestylers si dateaza din 2006.
