THE FREESTYLERS BIO:
Aston Harvey and Matt Cantor were both making different styles of music when they first met in London in the mid-90s. Uber-engineer Aston had been half of pioneering breakbeat hardcore act Blapps Posse, getting busy with cuts like ‘Buss’ It’ and ‘Don’t Hold Back’ before going on to work with Definition Of Sound, Rebel MC and DJ Rap. Matt Cantor, meanwhile, was recording with Andy Gardner from the Plump DJs as Cut ‘N’ Paste and Strike for the fledgling Freskanova label.
Discovering a mutual love of hip-hop and electro, Matt and Aston started making tracks together. The first record they sampled was old skool electro classic ‘Don’t Stop The Rock’ by Freestyle Express, and the resulting track ‘Drop The Boom’ on Scratch City Records launched them as The Freestylers and the partnership has been non-stop ever since.
With a career spanning over two decades, The Freestylers have pushed musical boundaries, headlined sell-out shows, won endless awards, relentlessly toured festivals and clubs, had international chart success on several occasions, sold over half a million records, have been inspiration to hundreds of acts around the world and were the very first electronic act to play fully live on legendary BBC TV show Top Of The Pops. There is just no stopping the Stylers as more records, more shows and more groundbreaking production is all still to come from this revolutionary act.
