Freestyle music is back! If you’re not familiar with Freestyle Music a.k.a. Latin Hip-Hop, Electro Music and High-NRG music, or if you are, you need to download a new Freestyle Music tune from Sekrett Scilensce, “The Love is Sound”. What makes Sekrett Scilensce different from other Latin Hip-Hop performers is the high production values and 100% real vocals. Sekrett Scilensce does not use auto-tuned vocals or other vocal effects (robotic type vocal performances). Instead, Sekrett Scilensce actually performs vox on Secret Silence songs.
The post-performance aesthetic that Sekrett Scilensce upholds is that Sekrett Scilensce is against “forced-distribution” mechanisms which control the way that freestyle music aficionados can download their music. Instead, Sekrett Scilensce offers distro of high quality Secret Silence Songs (320kbps) MP3s freely on the internet. Use your Android Kindle or other handheld, tablet, smart phone or mobile devices for Free Access and the Freedom to get The Music without additional registration (yknow, intrusion on your privacy). So, yes, the new freestyle music “The Love is Sound” is free for public download and sharing. Get the song free at the official webpage! “The PHP to HTML cross platform treatment to deliver content throughout 2012 is a step in the right direction, undoubtedly. It is hoped that music lovers feel similarly and continue to obtain future music releases via this method,” Secret Silence expanded more on his beliefs about online music delivery.
Sekrett Silence explained more about his Freestyle music aesthetic, “A lot of people have told me over the years that they miss certain styles of music and particularly, the lyrical themes that were conveyed through them. [The Love Is Sound] harkens back to Freestyle and chivalric romance, a la the traditional outline of value s as supposed to the digital interpretations of on demand romancing.”
