[dropcap]A[/dropcap]little background here on our featured artists. Steven “Flying Lotus” Ellison & Stephen “ThunderCat” Bruner are both from the L.A. area and did a funny video interview over at PitchFork from May 7th 2013, that you can watch below. Lotus is an experimental multi-genre music producer and rapper all while producing artists over at BrainFeeder for independent music. Lotus did the Bump Music for Adult Swim.. and much more. Thundercat has some solo works and has also been an active member of Suicidal Tendencies, (Suicidal Tendencies – Subliminal is in GTA V on [Channel X]) in addition to the side band of SxTx, “INFECTIOUS GROOVES”. Stephen is basically pulling double duty. He’s been rocking the stage with them for 6 years. He’s been known to work with many other musicians too as an accomplished bassist.. He’s even hit some notes with Snoop Dog. Thundercat’s current albums are titled “The Golden Age of Apocalypse (2011) & Apocalypse (2013)”. His musical style might be referred to as a blend of R&B, jazz fusion, electronic, psychedelic & funk.. We’ll make up some sort of word that seems to fit the built for that style.. RYTHUMJAZE’PHUZeK! Quiet a mouthful, but it seems to work. You may know him from Listening to the Radio in GTA V. Flying Lotus is noted for 9 of the 20 tracks for Fly Low Radio.
