Destune Records, Miami’s longest running and last standing Freestyle Dance Music label in South Florida returns to its roots after an international focus on global break beat, electro bass and new generation of Freestyle Dance music aficionados.  Summer 2020 the label cultivates it’s Miami roots and releases a project for a prominent son of the Magic City.

Tony Marino “Sara” is a contemporary Freestyle or Neo Freestyle/Progressive cut combining traditional Miami Freestyle elements with current standard Electronic Dance Music aesthetics. In the process giving “Sara” an organic Miami mid-tempo rendition to the Starship classic original.  Marino’s rich and thick warm vocals gives the track the volume and drive, while complementing strong beats, deep bass lines and crisp highs found in production work from DJ /Producer Jorge Ojeda. Also additional production work includes Ricky Alfaras.

“This is Miami’s Sara “explains Jonpito A&R at Destune.  “This is Sara with sofrito, 305 style. That’s what the kids want today in their Retro Wave, but something fresh for the veterans. We are keeping it real all around and reflecting today’s Miami”.

Tony Marino is one of Miami’s pioneering powerhouse vocalist. His classics “Love You Feel” “One Love” “Look Into My Eyes” basically helped the now legendary classic Power96 and Hot105 mix sets get 80’s EDM on the radio map. From soaring through the FM radio airwaves, pumping out of heavy bass dropping low riders from Hialeah to South Kendall and scorching dance floors like Club1235 ( now Mansion in South Beach), Ricks Bar and Casanova’s. His sound is the sound of South Florida. You can’t get more Miami than this. Starting in the Tolga Katas camp (Tolga, Linear, G.T. , Stevie B, Ray Guell ) vía Stevie B , Tony Morino quickly became a staple to  Miami Freestyle Dance music purists. Over the years his belt has added names with productions from Lewis Martinee ( Exposé) , Danny B ( Power Patrol,Spacemen) and even currently Oba Frank Lords ( Secret Society, Darkbeat).

Destune is ready to welcome Tony Marino to the DR family and give “Sara” a true Miami rendition with a true Miami Pioneer.
