Whoever's watched Samurai Champloo or been paying a little attention to music will know who this guy is. According to this urbandictionary defition, "his music blended elements of Hip Hop/Jazz/electronica to create a unique sound that's awesome to listen to." I'd add that he's on another level of soul as well.

I had this list of artists who had Nujabes's sound but I seem to have lost it. It's somewhere around, but for now...

I know these artists have that sound:

- DJ Okawari
- Kenichiro Nishihara

From Quora:

"Uyama Hiroto is affiliated with Hydeout Productions, the label Nujabes (RIP) was on. If you like both artists, they've collaborated on "Modal Soul", "Next View", and Uyama does the Saxophone part of "Luv(sic) Part 4"."

I haven't listened to Uyama Hiroto yet.

Some links for reference:

I know no one can truly match Nujabes but I just need MORE.


Anyway, I just went over to youtube to listen to some Cradle Orchestra which is another group that's said to sound like Jun Seba, but I don't think so and I just followed the suggestions bars and found these. Haven't listened to them much but the album covers look interesting:

Ta-Ku

P.R

Fat Jon

DJ Ezasscul

Sun Yeshoshua

 

Those are a couple of names out there with good music. A lot of people started getting into Jazz hop because of Nujabes. Ezasscul is just a 18 year old kid but he has a huge following outside of the U.S. Ta-Ku has a cult following too, his series 50 Days for Dilla and 25 Nights for Nujabes is some of the greatest stuff I've ever heard. P.R is still fairly new, but he's gained a lot of ground in the short 3 years he's been producing Jazz Hop. He's been working with Substantial and Cise Starr, notable Nujabes affiliates. He introduced himself to me over twitter when he was just starting out, but he is so good, i wasn't disappointed. I just discovered Sun Yeshoshua but he has a few gems too.

Mmm. I already knew about Fat Jon from the Champloo albums and the other Nujabes albums. Loved that Eaze piece and I closed my eyes when I listed to the Ta-Ku and P.R ones you posted; I just want to drown in their music. So good. Gonna listen to DJ Ezasscul and Sun Yeshoshua.

This is the P.R track with Cise Starr. It also features one of my favorite rappers Blu. Blu is top 3 on my list and he delivered an underground classic in Below The Heavens.

Pretty nice. I like how they used that speech from The Great Dictator. My favorite speech of all time. They must be intelligent to even know about it.
