“One of the most brilliant musicians I’ve ever witnessed” Flying Lotus

Due to logistical reasons London promoters Soundcrash have had to reschedule the launch party for LA artist Thundercat’s new album, ‘Apocalypse’ to July 10 and move the event to XOYO in Shoreditch. On the night Thundercat will perform a very special live set with support from one of the UK’s most exciting new talents Throwing Snow, plus some very special secret guests.

An energetic, imaginative performer LA bass virtuoso Stephen Bruner, aka Thundercat, has toured the world working with an impressive list of artists, from members of LA’s vibrant underground beat scene such as Flying Lotus through to global stars such as soul legend Leon Ware, Erykah Badu and Snoop Dogg.

Whilst his debut album, ‘The Golden Age of Apocalypse’, marked him out as one of the music scene’s most innovative players, his new album, the Flying Lotus produced ‘Apocalypse’, (just released on FlyLo’s own Brainfeeder Records) has firmly established himself as a global star earning universal praise everywhere from Pitchfork to The Independent.

Joining Thundercat will be UK producer, and former Astrophysics student, Throwing Snow who since his debut on Alexander Nut’s Ho-Tep label has remixed acts like Gold Panda, Sinden and Eskmo, delivered acclaimed releases on his own Snowfall label and put together one of the best live shows around making him a favourite of the likes of Gilles Peterson, Benji B, Mary Anne Hobbs and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.

With other additions to the lineup due to be announced and ever more glowing reviews of ‘Apocalypse’ appearing in the press, tickets are sure to move fast for this much awaited live show by one of music’s most singular talents.
