Vivian Host compiles an oral history of freestyle for Red Bull Music Academy Daily:

“Freestyle is the story of teen dreams – a time when young producers, vocalists, DJs, and label owners conspired to remake pop in their own image. Against the backdrop of a battered (but permissive) New York City and the glamorous warzone of Miami Vice-era Florida, a rag-tag group of heartthrobs proved that all that glittered could be (pop) gold."

Thanks for listening!

- Dave, Dev & Team Hype Machine
