I posted this sometime back in another place,
but I think Atlantic Records is the major label with the most Freestyle artists.
(Keep in mind, Atco Records, Mirage Records, & Big Beat, etc, are also a part of / or associated or distributed by Atlantic).

To start off, they have 3 of Freestyle's major girl-groups:
1. SWEET SENSATION
2. COMPANY B
3. PAJAMA PARTY

& Artists like:

4. SHANNON
5. BRENDA K. STARR
6. JOEY KID
7. NICE & WILD
8. CORINA
9. GIGGLES
10. LINEAR
11. NANCY MARTINEZ
12. SANDEE'
13. JELLYBEAN (Benitez)
14. D'ZYRE
15. VOYCE
16. NU SHOOZ
17. G.T.
18. CHRISSY I-EECE
19. THE BEAT CLUB
20. GENUINE PARTS
21. STACEY Q. (Dance-Pop)
22. DEBBIE GIBSON (Dance-Pop)
23. WILD MARY'S
24. TRINERE
25. LAURIE MILLER (formerly of X-POSED/EXPOSE')
26. JODY WATLEY (Dance/R&B)
27. 2 INA ROOM (Well, more house/rap)
28. EROTIC EXOTIC
29. JENNY BURTON
30. MARIA CHRISTENSEN (of SEQUAL)
31. TINA B.
32. VOICE IN FASHION
33. TOLGA

I beleive I may be missing a few more, but you get the idea. :)
Those are some of the "big names" too!

We LOVE MicMac, Fever, etc, but they're not major labels.
Labels like:
Atlantic
Columbia
Arista
MCA
Epic
Capitol
Virgin
Warner Bros.
Universal
etc, etc, etc.

lol,
"OF freestyle" possibly yes (next to Cutting).
But as for Major labels who've had Freestyle artists on their roster, I would have to say Atlantic had the most. (Compared to Capitol, Arista, MCA, etc.)

France is a desert for Freestyle music...
I also think that Atlantic Recording Corporation is the major label as far as concerns the amount of Freestyle productions which were distributed.
Other major labels as CBS Records, Columbia Records, Polygram, BMG Music, Island Records were released many stuffs in Freestyle music.

BUT...for the major Indie label, the one came to my mind immediately was...HOT PRODUCTIONS! But Metropolitan Recording Corporation also released an impressive amount of Freestyle productions (vinyls & CDs).
Who knows which one did the most?

But I still vote for Hot Productions...
And maybe this label even released more Freestyle productions than Atlantic.

We could also mention Warlock Records, Sleeping Bag, Micmac Records, Cutting Records and Profile Records,

Yes, but again, Hot Productions is an Indie label. Atlantic is a MAJOR label. You can't compare the two. :cool:
This is about MAJOR labels who've had the most Freestyle artists.
And I beleive Atlantic has probably had the most.

Atlantic is #1 followed by CBS and is subsidiaries...

Always looked forward to new Atlantic records, they were on top of the game.

Agree about the major label thing! LOL :D

But it will be certainly interesting to know which label (Indie & Major) did contribute the most in Freestyle Music, as far as concerns the amount of releases?
Don't you think? ;)
