You’ve probably heard Thundercat (aka Stephen Bruner) thrashing his bass with Suicidal Tendencies or crafting slinky, sensual grooves with Erykah Badu. His latest work with Flying Lotus extends toward an astral plane where space-jazz, minimalist beats, and oddball but accessible synth melodies morph together into a dreamy, sci-fi sonic stew. Traces of George Duke and Brian Wilson are evident, but Bruner is making his own way with music that actually takes risks in redefining what used to be called fusion.
