Pink Rhythm were a mid 80’s evolution of Freeez

Freeez were a dance music group from London, known initially as one of the UK's main jazz-funk bands of the early 1980s. Initiated by John Rocca, Freeez consisted of various musicians, originally with Rocca and others such as Andy Stennet (keyboards), Peter Maas (bass guitar) and Paul Morgan or Everton McCalla (drums). They had an international hit with "IOU", and a UK Top 10 with "Southern Freeez".

John Rocca “ Extra Extra” Available Digitally on 3rd March 2017

John Rocca became known first as a dance music performer, remixer, and record producer. During the early 1980s, Rocca formed, played with, wrote for, produced and managed his first musical band, Freeez. After his first self-funded and self-released effort, "Keep in Touch", a No. 49 hit in the UK Singles Chart, his next effort, "Southern Freeez" was a chart success in various other countries in Europe, reaching No. 8 in the UK Singles Chart.
During 1983, one of the first records to use digital sampling, "U", featured Rocca's falsetto voice and became one of the major dance successes of the 1980s electro music style. It scored number one in dance charts in Europe and the US Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play, and had popular music chart success across the world spending three weeks at number 2 in the UK.
