On the May 21, 2013 edition of Two For Tennis, Tim and The Coach handed over the reins to Steve Arrington and Lady Miss Kier.
Arrington—who lectures at the Red Bull Music Academy in NYC on May 24— has a new, Dam-Funk-produced, record forthcoming on Stones Throw, who sum up the soul/funk man’s career trajectory quite nicely:
Known for his innovative vocals on such classics as Watching You and Just A Touch of Love, with Slave, as well as his solo work like Weak at the Knees and Nobody Can Be You, Steve Arrington is one of those “what ever happened to” stories from the soul/funk movement of the 1980s. His songs have been sampled by the likes of Jay-Z, Jermaine Dupri, Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Snoop, LL Cool J, Mariah Carey, and N.W.A. His music also helped create the blueprint of 90’s west coast g-funk music along with Zapp and George Clinton.
Lady Miss Kier you should know: An NYC nightlife fixture, she is the singer, songwriter, DJ and producer who put together a little combo back in the ‘80s known as Deee-Lite.
This dynamic duo took to the decks in the EVR studio and delivered a mind-blowing two hours of jams and chatter. Check the archive at the top of the page if you don't believe us.
