Thundercat

THUNDERCAT is the alter ego of virtuosic bassist / singer Stephen Bruner. The South Los Angeles-native has released two critically acclaimed full length albums on Brainfeeder Records since 2011, and last year saw the release of widely praised mini-album The Beyond / Where the Giants Roam. The album features appearances from the legendary Herbie Hancock, fellow Brainfeeder family members Kamasi Washington, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and Mono/Poly and production work from Brainfeeder head, Flying Lotus. 2015 also saw Thundercat make outstanding contributions to landmark albums by Kamasi Washington (The Epic) and Kendrick Lamar (To Pimp A Butterfly). His work on Lamar’s recently netted him his first Grammy.

Bruner found his instrument at the age of 4. That made him a late-bloomer in the house of Ronald, Sr., who drummed with the Temptations among others. His first bass was a black Harmony, and he practiced to the Ninja Turtles soundtrack until pops played him Jaco Pastorius. He joined thrash legends Suicidal Tendencies as a teenager, and spent road and studio time with everyone from Stanley Clarke to Snoop Dogg to Erykah Badu. Eventually the name Thundercat stuck, a reference to the cartoon he’s loved since childhood and an extension of Bruner’s wide-eyed, vibrant, often superhuman approach to his craft.

PBDY

Paul Preston a.k.a. PBDY was born in Long Island & raised in Phoenix. Through shared interests in multiple art forms, he became Internet friends with Flying Lotus back in 2007 during the golden age of Myspace. As that friendship flourished, he one day received a text from Flylo inviting him out to Los Angeles with an opportunity to be roommates with The Gaslamp Killer. The rest is, as they say, history.

PBDY, soon became an essential member of the Brainfeeder crew. Playing label showcases in NYC for RBMA, Japan and Europe, as well as touring with Flying Lotus on his ‘YOU'RE DEAD’ tour. Soon he dove head first into music with a side project joining fellow Brainfeeder comrade Jeremiah Jae the two form as JP Moregun. Their debut mixtape was released on Brainfeeder in 2016 and was followed by a European tour. PBDY then released a collaborative EP he produced with London based MC BUCHANAN in 2017. He continues to release mixtapes and hosts a monthly radio show on NTS Radio, all while running his own label TAR. His passion for music has led him on an ongoing journey to spread soundscapes & ideas.
