Lecture: Steve Arrington (New York, 2013)
The g-funk pioneer tells his story at the 2013 Red Bull Music Academy in New York.
Known for his innovative vocals and drums on such classics as "Watching You" and "Just a Touch of Love" with the legendary soul/funk outfit Slave, and his solo work like "Weak at the Knees" and "Nobody Can Be You," Steve Arrington is one of the true pioneers of the West Coast sound g-funk sound (despite being a Dayton, Ohio resident). His songs have been sampled by the likes of Jay-Z, Snoop, N.W.A. and Mariah Carey among countless others – and continue to be heard on discerning dancefloors across the globe. After an extended hiatus from music in the ’90s, Steve has recently partnered up with Stones Throw’s Dam Funk for a collaborative album, leaving the door wide open for the next chapter.
