Steve Arrington "I Be Trippin"
Stones Throw has announced an upcoming album from former Slave frontman and funk music OG Steve Arrington to be entirely produced by Dam-Funk. "I Be Trippin" is the first taste of their collaboration—although Arrington did also guest on "4 My Homies" on Dam-Funk's "Hood Pass Intact" 12"—and it finds Dam cooking up a classic-sounding, laid-back, feel-good West Coast beat complete with bubbling synth pads, some classy electric piano, and a fat bassline. Layers of Arrington's vocal float over the beat going through some of the many scenarios where he be "trippin" and throwing out commands to "drop that funk." This track is a must for any slow-motion pool party/bbq you've been planning. No word on when the album is due, but we'll let you know as soon as we do.
