Los Angeles is full of awesome weirdo musicians, but six-string bass virtuoso Thundercat is way up there with the weirdest and most awesome of them all. Don't believe us? Ask friends like fractured-hip-hop shaman Flying Lotus and bass bud Flea. Thundercat's new single, "Oh Sheit It's X" – the true story of an MDMA-fueled New Year's party – is an early candidate for 2013's greatest summer jam. "That party was one of the most epic things that has ever happened," says Thundercat with a laugh. "Two and a half days of full-on shenanigans, man."
