About this item

Virtuoso bassist and singer-songwriter Stephen Bruner aka Thundercat returns to the Brainfeeder fold with his first solo material in two years, having already made outstanding contributions to not one, but two, of the greatest albums of 2015 - 'To Pimp a Butterfly' and 'The Epic' - by fellow Los Angelians Kendrick Lamar and Kamasi Washington.

Seven track mini-album 'The Beyond / Where the Giants Roam' picks up where 2013's 'Apocalypse' left off, with Thundercat joined on production duties by longtime sparring partner Flying Lotus for six spiralling excursions to the outer limits of jazz-funk. Featuring soaring choral vocals, and a touch of yacht-like sophistication (Steely Dan springs to mind), the EP is sublime from start to finish. The legendary Herbie Hancock pops up on keyboards on "Lone Wolf & Cub" and there are contributions from fellow Brainfeeder family members Kamasi Washington, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and Mono/Poly on sax, strings and production respectively. Essential!
