Two well known DJs from the UK, who call themselves the "Freestylers," will make their debut in Ho Chi Minh City on April 16 at the Hi-Fi Club.

Producers Aston Harvey and Matt Cantor, who got together in 1993, have promoted their music a mix of hip hop, electro, reggae, soul and breakbeat at rocking clubs, parties and festivals.

They were invited to perform at MTV's Millennium party in New York's Times Square and to the Glastonbury Festival in 1999. The duo have been on the US tour of Lenny Kravitz, and were the first electronic act to play fully live on BBC TV show Top of the Pops.

The Freestylers' music has also been used in such blockbusters as Dude Where's My Car and Sweet Home Alabama as well as in various adverts including a massive 'Pring les' campaign in the UK. The band themselves were featured in an extensive TV campaign across North America for Best Buy.

Accompanying the Freestylers in the event, co-organized by Russian Standard Platium, are DJ Nic Ford (UK), Jonathan Glaser (Sweden) and Jase from Australia.
