Stefan – Liquid Sunshine (Prod. Marcus Manhas) [Audio]
Vancouver Island, BC – Liquid Sunshine,” a track inspired by experiencing the laid-back, carefree culture of Jamaica, is the first single from Vancouver Island hip-hop artist Stefan’s upcoming debut EP: HTFU (Harden The Fuck Up) scheduled to release October 13, 2014.
Reflecting on his past, he reminisces on overcoming personal hardships while conveying his new-found optimism for life in his lyrics. The project is solely produced, engineered, recorded and mixed by hip-hop newcomer and long-time rock percussionist, Marcus Manhas (Band Of Rascals). The chemistry between the two is overwhelmingly apparent, with Marcus’ flowing synths and heart-stopping arpeggios blending seamlessly with Stefan’s switch-ups of soulful harmonies contrasted by double-time staccatos. Coupled with professional mastering by critically acclaimed producer/engineer Dan Weston (SonReal, Shad, Classified) and a proverbial head-nod from Stomdown Killaz’ Capital Q, Stefan and Marcus are set to hit the ground running. Watch out for these two in the near future.
