Freestyle Style Overview
Freestyle Music Description
Heavily Latin-influenced club music created in Miami and New York clubs in the mid-1980's. A later progression of electro, it was characterized by a syncopated beat (as opposed to a typical 4/4 beat found in rock & disco music). Also featured heavy use of Latino instruments in the rhythm track (e.g., clave, maracas).
Not just for releases which feature off-the-cuff freestyle performances, or a free hand style-wise.
