Stephen Bruner is the guy seemingly born with a supernatural talent for playing bass guitar, used to perform with Snoop Dogg/Erykah Badu/Suicidal Tendencies,  got signed up by Flying Lotus to his Brainfeeder label, produced Kendrick Lamar’s most critically lauded album ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ and generally is a bloke everyone wants on their album.

There’s a link between this episode and one I recorded with Flying Lotus (number 17) in Autumn 2016, so do head back and listen to that if you enjoy this.

The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£6 per month) and the rest of the world (£8 per month).
