Blah, Blah, Threesome – Bonus Episode 6

The Freestyle Club review fan feedback from Alex of Latin Nation who disagrees with us when it comes to artists taking responsibility for the projects they work on. Luis who doesn’t understand the hype over Jenee Renee’s latest hit song. We finish off fan feedback with Zeke, who goes in on Tanassi about his spamming of links on artists pages.

We discuss Freestyle Armageddon Day aka June 8th. It seems that everyone in Freestyle has an event on Saturday, June 8th. In typical Freestyle Fashion, the genre implodes over competing events. Instead of celebrating the fact that Freestyle Music is about to host multiple events on a single, we instead draw battle lines and take sides.

Royalty Radio has become the latest buzz word in the Freestyle community. The Freestyle Club attempts to break down the mission of Royalty Radio. CPR was approached for his Clubhouse Dance Music Logo, but other than that and a meeting to discuss generalities there isn’t much information about Royalty Radio. Stay tuned, if we get any new information we’ll be sure to pass it on.

We do a quick and dirty mid-year review of the latest songs in the Freestyle Music genre. We talk about the standouts during the first half of 2019. With songs from Shy, Jenni Renee, Jasmine Denis, A’Lisa B,, Aiki, Berrios vs Zone, Wendy, and Lily Rose. We also talk about the songs we are looking forward to in the second half of 2019. Songs include Shawn Davis, Julio Mena, A’Lisa B, Mark Milan, Sammy Zone, CPR Clubhouse Madness, and more.

Second Generation with Andy “Panda” Tripoli

The Freestyle Club Episode 26: Second Generation with Andy “Panda” Tripoli

The Freestyle Club sits down with the one and only, Song Writer and Producer Andy “Panda” Tripoli. We start things off with MTV’s 2nd Generation hosted by Tony Moran (one half of the Latin Rascals) and Andy Panda. Andy talks about the creation of the show, being picked up for a second season, the representation of Latinos and Latin Hip Hop music and the reasons for the show ultimately being canceled.

Andy goes on to talk about the genesis of The Cover Girls. He explains how his love of Motown Music and groups like The Supremes and others inspired him to create his own girl group. We set out with the concept and shared his vision with Sal Abbatiello of Fever Records. Eventually, after a few initial replacement, they finalize the members of The Cover Girls and Andy pens Show Me.

We examine how Freestyle was “OUR” generation’s Salsa Music. We reminisce how our parent would play Salsa Music and how we grew up listening to Salsa Music. Now as we grew up our children, in turn, grew up listening to our version of Salsa Music with Freestyle Music. We also take note of how Old Salseros are not generally known to be accepting of new artists and how that mentality is now present in Freestyle Music.

Proving that Andy Panda listens to The Freestyle Club, he sets the record straight on Together Forever and the role that Frankie Cutlass played in the creation of this Freestyle Classic. Andy talks about Tony Moran and his many contributions to the Freestyle Music genre. We wrap up the interview with Andy sharing his upcoming Freestyle Music projects.

She details the thought process behind using GoFundMe and backlash she received. We talk about the Freestyle Music industry as a whole. Bad contracts, labels, managers, etc is a recurring theme as Nyasia goes deep into her early years in the industry.

We ask Nyasia what pisses her off the most about the music and she doesn’t hold back. From the legends backstabbing and disrespectful behavior towards each other to the low ball offers from promoters. To the online wars, which she feels have only gotten worse with social media. We also talk about Jennifer Lopez mentioning Freestyle and the fans overreaction, as well as Marc Anthony’s role in Freestyle Music.
