R.I.P. Nujabes

"Without having to raise the heartbeat again, took off into the sky."

Nujabes, whose real name is Seba Jun, is remembered as one of the premiere producers in the underground hip-hop scene. His philosophical, atmospheric music spanned beyond his native Japan. He has done collaborations with British and American artists such as CYNE’s Cise Star (Lady Brown) and Substantial (Think Different). He is perhaps most widely recognized for his work on the soundtrack of Samurai Champloo.

Despite the one song we’ve played on JSR (#2, “Luv Sic Pt. 3”), Nujabes has a substantial body of work worth listening to.

Get familiar.
