After a 15 year career the Freestylers have covered a full 360 degrees in the Bass music genre, having played all the biggest festivals and most talked about nightclubs around the world, even the quintessentially British music show, Top of The Pops. Having achieved the kind of success most artists can only dream of, they’ve not rest on their laurels and are constantly working on new releases all the time.
Aston and Matt started making tracks together in the mid ‘90’s after discovering a mutual love of hip-hop, electro and beats. They released their first two albums ‘We Rock Hard’ and ‘Pressure Point’ on legendary Breakbeat label Freskanova. ‘Raw as F**k’ and ‘Adventures in Freestyle’ were released on ‘Against The Grain’, another Breaks power house based out of Brighton, UK. From being voted ‘Best Band’ by Musik Magazine to touring with Lenny Kravitz on his American Woman tour (he asked them himself as he was so impressed with their act), rocking a crowd of 30,000 at Glastonbury Festival ’99 and performing at MTV’s Times Sq Millenium Party, playing Big Day Out ‘05– it’s fair to say they’ve have had one big adventure so far.
The Freestylers began their career as an Urban Electronic Music Act, and their early tunes ‘B-Boy Stance,’’ ‘Ruffneck’ and ‘Warning’ set the marker. As their music progressed so did their anthems with the seminal tunes ‘Punks’, ‘Boom Blast’, ‘Fasten Your Seat-Belts,’ ‘Painkiller’ and more recently ‘Cracks.’ In addition to their status as underground heroes, they have gained commercial success with their huge global hit ‘Push Up’ and have had their music featured in TV and film, including the hugely successful comedy films Zoolander and Hey Dude Where’s My Car
They’ve released 5 Albums – We Rock Hard, Pressure Point, Raw As F**K, Adventures In Freestyle and The Coming Storm and are currently working on a 6th.
Their ever-eclectic style and renegade approach to production focusing on everything in the bass music spectrum knows no bounds . Whether they’re performing as a live band, sound system or DJ set, you know they’re gonna rock hard.
