URB was deeply saddened over the weekend to learn that 22-year old Brainfeeder recording artist Austin Peralta, son of skateboarding legend and award-winning documentarian Stacey Peralta, passed away on Thanksgiving Day. The cause of his death is still unknown.
Peralta was a piano prodigy, releasing his first jazz album at the age of 16. He soon joined the ranks of Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label, releasing the album Endless Planets in 2011. He also appeared on records by label mates Flylo and Thundercat.
In 2011, URB interviewed Peralta for the Coachella CAMP magazine. You can read the interview after the jump.
