Stephen Bruner aka Thundercat is in the first place a very talented bassist, but his upcoming record proves that he is an amazing vocalist, master of electronica and soul.

All of these genres are blended in his track "Heartbreaks+Setbacks" from his album Apocalypse produced by Flying Lotus and due in early July. I am amazed how naturally and skillfully he combines funk, jazz, soul and electronica. The track is very smooth and groovy, and the lyrics bring in the emotional touch. I absolutely love the smooth bass in the very end of the song and it feels like a perfect way to round the track off.

Before I knew it I pressed the replay button. And then again. And again. The track is addictive. His album is definitely something to be excited about!
