Trio…Nujabes Tracks

Nujabes is one of my favorite lounge/downtempo producers. I discovered him back in college when I watched Samurai Champloo – a really amazing anime that pits hip-hop analogies and culture against a backdrop of fuedal Japan. The music in the series was outstanding, so I was quite pleased when I was able to do some research and add Nujabes to my music collection. I was amazed that such soulful, jazz-influnced music was coming from Japan! Check these out…they’re my top 3 favorite tracks…

1) Moon Strut

2) A Day By Atmosphere Supreme

3) Kumoni

The way he crafts such mellow beats AND adds a touch of Asian musicality really makes for the best study or thinking music. Unfortunately, Nujabes died in a car accident back in February but I’m really looking forward to hearing whatever tracks he left behind – the man was a genius.
