THUNDERCAT + OSO LEONE
The career of Stephen Bruner, aka Thundercat, is what can only be described as meteoric. Raised in a family of musicians, his first dabbles in music were already remarkable: together with his brother he was part of the trash legends Suicidal Tendencies and at 16 he toured with Stanley Clarke. At the beginning of the current decade he started to release his own work, always together with his friend Flying Lotus and on Brainfeeder, in which he developed his personal vision of jazz: experimental, electronic and led by skilful and powerful bass lines. The list of Bruner’s collaborations is also impressive: Kendrick Lamar, Erykah Badu, Kamasi Washington, the previously mentioned Flying lotus, Earl Sweatshirt, Childish Gambino and Wiz Khalifa have had the pleasure of being accompanied by this incredibly talented bassist.
