In the mid-80s, Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam led a Latin Freestyle scene that had birthed the likes of Madonna and Shannon, helping take the Latin-influenced hip-hop disco music mainstream. The trio had multiple platinum-certified LPs and dominant chart-topping success with hits like "I Wonder If I Take You Home" and "Can You Feel The Beat." While Lisa Lisa ruled the roost at Freestyle hubs Funhouse and Paradise Garage in Manhattan, supporting act The Cover Girls held court uptown in the Bronx at The Devil's Nest, making futuristic soulful dance music with next-generation electronic instruments.
