Just like House music,the DJ is more of the star than the actual vocalist so you will find most of the music released under the DJ name. DJ Sharaz,DJ Icey,DJ Baby Anne,DJ X are some that quickly come to mind.Breakbeat had a big following around 95-2003 in the Florida area were most of the artists are from.Vocal female breakbeat sounds very similiar to freestyle except the bpm is faster and there's less of a song structure and its more of a dark club mood.

The only thing keeping these songs from being classified as "freestyle" is the fact that they're very very instrumental and structured quite differently, but imagine if any of these vocals were being done by a "freestyle" diva, then it would be known as "the new sound of freestyle".
As if freestyle was way too "clicked up", meaning that it was more about the personnell than it was about the actual music. That phenomenom often gets overlooked when people look to explain the downfall of the genre.
Wild Style they are some killer tracks you put up there.
This is one of my favs by Icey that I have on vinyl. It mixes sick with "Clear" by Cybertron. I mix Clear into it for the entire track, it just goes together so nicely, almost meant to be ...djc.

Icey always has some sick remixes! I played his electro remix of "Escape" by Kaycee for like an hour when I first got it back in early 2000.It was one of the last times I bought any new vinyl. Then there's the bass mix of "beach ball". I was in South Beach when it was out and I heard it everywhere I went.
