The "heavily influenced" Thundercat.

The Play List

For the past three years, I have been involved in a protracted meditation on Thundercat. Graeme Arendse (art director, Chimurenga) reckons he jacked his whole swag from George Duke and Herbie Hancock. I prefer to imagine him as “heavily influenced”.

Thundercat — Them Changes

George Duke — Liberated Fantasy

Herbie Hancock — Trust Me

Roy Ayers ­— Liquid Love

It generally takes me months to catch on to anything new, so I’m assuming that this is no longer emergent.
H.E.R’s Volume 1 feels like a somewhat nostalgic, historically rigorous RnB intervention. Although her identity has not been disclosed, Genius has reported that it’s songstress Gabi Wilson.

H.E.R. — Volume 1

RAY BLK — Durt

Solange — A Seat at the Table

Roberta Flack — Feel Like Making Love
