The West Coast movement began in the early 1980s and has since then had an abundance of new pioneers added to the musical dynasty. Roc Steady, The Game, Duuke Mantee, and Eastside K-Boy collaborated for a special sound. Sunday Funday was instrumentally based for melodic familiarity and vocally delivered with comradery. Meaning, SteadyBeats400 otherwise known as Roc Steady, left no stone unturned when tailoring the instrumentation for each verse to represent that West Coast feel. Imagine four close friends finding a track that equally represents one another.
A treat for the West Coast Hip-Hop fans sounds more like the theme for this single. You've heard iconic sounds used before in movies, music, and media dating as far back as Tupac and Snoop Dogg’s prime. As if the line up did not secure the West Coast vibe enough, they put The Game on the hook. A rough voice set-claiming and meddling through your 808s under palm trees cruisin’ with the top down- a visual for this record. If you have not had the chance to visit the 310, Steadybeats400, A.K.A, Roc Steady has instrumentals and tracks that will take you out there in that heat!
Take a listen to the drowning sounds that come from Liquid - A blazin’ R&B/Soul instrumental by Roc Steady himself. Nothing truly beats a West Coast classic! In a lane of its own, it is Sunday Funday. Out now on Spotify!
