Freestyle or Latin Freestyle, also called Latin Hip Hop in its early years, is a form of electronic dance music that emerged in the early 1980s. It was most popular around 1987, then its popularity declined as it was displaced by house music. It continues to be produced today and enjoys some degree of popularity, especially in urban Hispanic and Italian communities, as it did when it first came on to the scene.[1] Another popular modern dance music genre, Florida breaks, evolved from this sound.[citation needed]
