Thundercat’s rolling bass drives “Them Changes”

Thundercat is back, this time with the retro-soul gem “Them Changes.”
Singer, producer and bass player Thundercat (Stephen Bruner) is known for working with Flying Lotusthundercat bass and Suicidal Tendencies. Bruner has also made a recent appearance on Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp A Butterfly,” but his resume includes working with Erykah Badu’s “New Amerykah” in 2008. He’s been collaborating with Flying Lotus since Bruner’s first album, 2011’s “Golden Age of Apocalypse,” which Flying Lotus produced.

Thundercat’s new single “Them Changes” channels slivers of Kool and the Gang’s romantic vocals and the easy-living piano of Hall and Oates and modernizes it into a new version of smooth R&B funk.

It’s an infectious hit, and its bumping and rolling bass lifts you off the floor.

Via Rolling Stone, Thundercat’s new mini-album, “The Beyond/Where the Giants Roam,” which Flying Lotus co-produced, is out June 22. Thundercat is on the Brainfeeder label.
