I'm debating taking this blog private and/or looking for some help with the posting or uploads. If there is anyone who would like to join as a poster or help with the uploading, contact me at the address below. For uploading, I would burn my files to disc and send out via USPS, as long as it's someone in the States.

If it does go private and you want an invite, send me an email as well and let me know if you have a site as well.

Happy Holidays!

I will try and get some X-Mas music up in the next couple of days, hopefully B4 the 25th :-) and also few of the requests I already have ripped. I added a new site in the link section to Brad's blog. Check it out here --> Freestyle Project

Lydia Lee - I Do Love You (1991)

Produced by Hector "Ziggy" Gonzalez and released in 1991 through Moon Roof/Freeze Records. I assume this is the same Lydia who sang Don't Take Your Love Away.

Tony Marino - Scars On My Heart b/w Don't Say No Tonite (1994)

Another release from Tony Marino, also produced by Tolga. The b-side track is a downtempo number which just doesn't do it for me. It sounds like it should be 10-15 bpm faster.

Christina Marie - Turning Away (2001)

This was put out in 2001 on VazRam Records, which I assume stands for Mario Vazquez and Pete Ramirez, who were the EP's on this record. Lead vocals by Christina Marie Rubino.

TKA - One Way Love (1986)

This was released in 1986 by TKA, freestyle's biggest male group. I have always thought of them as the Run-DMC of freestyle music. A typical setup for them with Joey Gardner as EP and The Latin Rascals doing some production.

Tony G. - Tony's Song (1988)

Make room for the bad guy. This was put out by Tony "Dr. Edit" Garcia in 1988 and was inspired by the movie Scarface. Nelson Pinero assumes the role of Tony Montana on the record.

Back in a couple of weeks...

This was released on Vendetta in 1988.

Brenda K. Starr - Pickin' Up Pieces (1985)

This is from 1985 and was produced by Arthur Baker. It was on Brenda's first album called I Want Your Love. If anyone happens to have that album, send me a message.

Tina Elise - Open To You

I can't remember exactly when this one came out, but it was probably in the early-mid 90's and released on After Dark records . It was written by Ron Esco and Wilson Yepez who also produced the track with Adam Kiss. I love the housey feel to the track, reminds me a little of Todd Terry. Only thing that is missing are the Berrios Beats...
