MEET THUNDERCAT. This LA native, who came into the world as Stephen Bruner, has a musical background that is worth mentioning. Born into a musical family, Bruner’s father is an internationally-renowned jazz drummer, and his brother, a Grammy-winning drummer. Prior to coining his Thundercat moniker, Bruner played bass along with his brother in west-coast Punk band Suicidal Tendencies. In this time, he became the go-to bassist for fellow experimental soul acts like Erykah Badu, Flying Lotus, Sa-Ra, Stanley Clarke.
2011 marked the release of his solo debut album “The Golden Age of Apocalypse”. He is currently prepping the release of his sophomore effort, “Apocalypse”, to be released on June 4, 2013 through executive producer Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint. “Oh Sheit, It’s X” is a true funk/dance track highlighting a night of partying in an almost comical way.
