Freestyle was a short lived Swedish electronic music group active in the early 1980s. The original line-up consisted of Tommy Ekman, Christer Sandelin, Gigi Hamilton, Joakim Hagleitner, Anders Uddberg and Kayo Shekoni, but Kayo left the group with the release of the fourth single Vill ha dej and was replaced by Diane Corinne Söderholm, a half-sister of Rita Marley. The most notable hits of the group include "Vill ha dej", "Fantasi", "Ögon som glittrar" and "Rider omkring". "Vill ha dej" (also spelled "Vill ha dig") did stay on top of the list for 5 consecutive weeks and was covered by Swedish solo project Drömhus in 1998. Freestyle disbanded in 1983 with Ekman, Sandelin and Hamilton continuing as Style. Söderholm formed DaYeene with her sister Jeanette. Freestyle reformed for the Summer of 1998 to re-record "Fantasi" and "Ögon Som Glittrar" and to release a new compilation album. "Fantasi" became a huge hit once again and Freestyle made a one-off concert in Stockholm.
