I know there are a lot of cats who dig Nujabes and I’ve posted a few threads here when he released albums here and there, but I think that it’d be nice to compile all the Nujabes and Nujabes related stuff.
For those who are new to Nujabes, he is well known for his work on the Samurai Champloo anime series. If you ever watched that show and was all like, “Damn, those are some hot ass beats,” then you are probably talking about Nujabes.
For further non-official reference, here is the wiki on the dude:
So far, I know at least three albums:
Hydeout Productions 2nd collection
Apparently, he released a new album I wasn’t aware about until I read that wiki, called Modal Soul Classics.
Also, if you look for all the Samurai Champloo albums, you’ll find a lot of Nujabes gold.
Some are done by Fat Jon and Forces of Nature, but they are just as good.
Anyway, I was itching for some new Nujabes stuff, and remembered a drum track he had on one of the Sam Champ albums. I youtubed it and found these two dudes who do a nujabes Piano/Drum set. It’s fucking great.
Those dudes hyped me to hear some shit from them and Nujabes.
