Nujabes.

Nujabes in his studio

As I've been listening very much to his tunes lately I thought about sharing his music with you: Jun Seba aka Nujabes had been one of the very great hip hop producers and DJs in his lifetime.

If you want to know more details about him just look on Wikipedia.. What made him special, for me at least, was his very unique style of music,  since he used jazz elements in his hip hop tunes. The result of this mix sounds fantastic! Some of you may know him from the anime Samurai Champloo, because he was the one to make the opening song and the background music in the whole series.

Samurai Champloo
Unfortunately though he died on 26/02/10 in a traffic accident in Japan. Having been only 36 years old he died at a young age, but what he left behind in that short period of time is brilliant! Please take your time and listen to some of his tunes:


Have fun listening!

Yours sincerely
Noctis
