Thundercat is an incredible bassist who took his name from the series of animated of the same name. He is the also the protegé of Flying Lotus. Stephen Brunner has also been a part of hardcore punk called Suicidal Tendencies from Venice Beach since 2002. He will launch an album on August 30th called The Golden Age of Apocalypse and I can’t wait to hear it and share it to y’all, there are some excellent collaboration on it. Having seen him perform in Low End Theory last April with FlyLo and Eryka Badu and I couldn’t belive what I was hearing. His name should be on the mouth of everyone. And he also worked on the last album and Erykah Badu and along with the guys from Sa-Ra Creative Partners.
” Lots of people ask me about Thundercat, and how I come to know this guy. Thing is you’ve been hearing him for years and probably didn’t even know it. He’s one of the most talented bass players I’ve ever witnessed and I’ve been blessed to have worked with this guy on ‘Cosmogramma’ and ‘Pattern+Grid World’. Since then Thunder has been like a brother to me and feels like the other half of my brain in the studio. I thought it would be good to get you familiar with the man who’s contributed his unique sound to so many records I love. Here’s some things, a prelude to the LP. Some new, some you might know, some we may never release.
His debut album ‘The Golden Age of Apocalypse’ drops Aug. 30th, which I have had my hand in putting together.”
