R.I.P. Austin Peralta

Brainfeeder affiliate and Jazz pianist aficionado Austin Peralta died on Thanksgiving at the young age of 22 years-old. Peralta, son of Z-Boys skateboarder Stacy Peralta, started his career in Japan at the age of 15, where he debuted his own trio featuring Thundercat’s brother Ronald Bruner Jr. at the Tokyo Jazz Festival 2006. Peralta’s most recent work has been with Flying Lotus’ record label Brainfeeder where he released a full-length album titled Endless Planets in 2011 and has been featured on tracks by Thundercat, Flying Lotus, Teebs, as well as Erykah Badu and the Cinematic Orchestra.
