Thundercat
It Is What It Is

No McDonald and Loggins this time but Thundercat follows up the expansive, at times baffling 'Drunk' with another tour de force of his nimble-fingered funk, soul and hip-hop. Fifteen more tracks of blissful, laid back sunshine vibes topped off with his distinctive sweet vocals and virtuoso bass playing. He's roped in a tantalizing array of artists, here working with Childish Gambino, Steve Lacy, Steve Arrington, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil B, Zack Fox & Louis Cole. Four (count 'em) different vinyl versions to choose from at the time of launch. Released through Flying Lotus' esteemed Brainfeeder label (naturally). 

Thundercat
Drunk

If you move in certain areas of music (the LA Brainfeeder / cosmic jazz axis and surrounds), you will appreciate Thundercat as a god-like figure. The man plays electric bass like nobody’s business, but he is also a mighty songwriter, and Drunk is his own record. It features an amazing cast of collaborators (Kendrick Lamar! Kamasi Washington!), and is presented on one CD or four 10” vinyl records.

Thundercat + OG Ron C & The Chopstars
Drank

By now you probably know that Thundercat’s third album Drunk is a fast-moving masterpiece that augments his George Duke / Stanley Clarke-influenced fusion style with shades of Zappa and Todd Rundgren. An A Wizard, A True Star for our times, even, but one that finds room for Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins! The album’s richness and detail make it a great candidate for a chopped and screwed treatment. Slower, longer, and deeper, this slurred, sticky, double cup purple version is a massively fun alternative route to Thundercat’s fiendish funk, intricate basslines and soulful vocals.

Thundercat
The Golden Age Of Apocalypse

As the old song goes, this is the dawning of the age of apocalypse - ‘The Golden Age Of Apocalypse’, no less. Tolling his bell of doom here is Adult Swim favourite and serial bass-botherer Thundercat. The modern jazz-fusion exercises of ‘The Golden Age Of Apocalypse’ may have spawned a hell of a lot of terrible college bands, but if anything that’s a testament to the quirky, witty genre-splicings within.

Thundercat
Apocalypse

LA vibe king Thundercat followed his debut the Golden Age of Apocalypse by picking out one word from that title and coming up with his best record to date. Apocalypse is a gorgeous run through his repertoire of funk, soul, hip-hop and '70s yacht rock. An inventive and enthralling ride and the soundtrack to any summer.
