In the lead-up to releasing the bassist’s debut solo effort
thru his own Brainfeeder label later this month,
head honcho Flying Lotus
has put together a mix he’s calling Shenanigans pt.1
that compiles some of the more recent career highlights
for the new found bass god that we now know as Thundercat.
Along w/ the mix, FlyLo wrote the following:
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.
And since Lotus seems to prefer a certain amount of secrecy with his mixes,
we’ve taken it upon ourselves to do all the grunt work
& ID as many of the tracks from the mixes as we could.
