Who Is Nujabes (ヌジャベス)?

Seba Jun (瀬場潤), a legend in the music industry, although his name is unknown to many. Nujabes produces a very magical kind of music, and has garnered quite the cult following because of it. Adult Swim often used to play Nujabes beats during the little "bumps" between shows, so you might recognize some of his work from there. His music is a real experience, thought-provoking and relaxing, and nearly all of his fan's would tell you the same. Nujabes released 3 studio albums, 4 singles, and worked extensively producing the Samurai Champloo soundtrack, along with Fat Jon, Minmi, and Force of Nature. His career tragically ended on February 26th, 2010, after a car accident in Shibuya, Tokyo, we'll get more in-depth about that later. But enough intro, let's get to the core of Nujabes, what you all came for.

Solo Discography

Metaphorical Music - (2003)

Metaphorical Music was Nujabes' first solo album, under the Hydeout Productions label. He achieved most of his recognition through this album, although he did have a small following beforehand, for his work in Hydeout's first compilation album. This album features many rappers/producers from the label, including Substantial, Pase Rock, and Five Deez, among others. Metaphorical Music is a very good showcase of what Nujabes can do, as each track has it's own flavor, something that makes it unique. As with all of his music, the production is perfect, and the composition is master-class.

  1. Blessing It (Remix) (featuring Substantial & Pase Rock)
  2. Horn In The Middle
  3. Lady Brown (featuring Cise Starr)
  4. Kumomi
  5. Highs 2 Lows (featuring Cise Starr)
  6. Beat Laments The World
  7. Letter From Yokosuka
  8. Think Different (featuring Substantial)
  9. A Day By Atmosphere Supreme
  10. Next View (featuring Uyama Hiroto)
  11. Latitude (Remix)" (featuring Five Deez)
  12. F.I.L.O. (featuring Shing02)
  13. Summer Gypsy
  14. The Final View
  15. Peaceland

Modal Soul - (2005)

Arguably the best album that Nujabes released, this album contains so many real classics that people associate with his legacy. Modal Soul really helped shoot him into the public-eye (among the instrumental hip-hop scene, at least), along with his aforementioned work on the Samurai Champloo soundtrack in 2004. This album introduces and perfects the sound that Seba Jun is most well-known for, laid-back beats, catchy samples, and instruments of all varieties. Again, he brings along some vocalists/rappers from the Hydeout Productions label for the ride.

  1. Feather (featuring Cise Starr & Akin)
  2. Ordinary Joe (featuring Terry Callier)
  3. Reflection Eternal
  4. Luv (Sic) Part 3 (featuring Shing02)
  5. Music Is Mine
  6. Eclipse (featuring Substantial)
  7. The Sign (featuring Pase Rock)
  8. Thank You (featuring Apani B)
  9. World's End Rhapsody
  10. Modal Soul (featuring Uyama Hiroto)
  11. Flowers (guest appearance from Dinah Washington)
  12. Sea of Cloud
  13. Light on the Land
  14. Horizon

Spiritual State - (2011)

I know what you're thinking; "2011? /u/Old_Book, I thought you said he died in 2010!", and you're correct, he did. Nujabes was in the process of completing this album upon his death. Spiritual State was finished posthumously by those close to him, using instrumentals Nujabes had already produced. This album has a generally more heavy feeling to it, a lot of the songs use deep, lush pads, and have a lower-than-average BPM. Many Nujabes fans agree that this was an immaculate send-off for his shortlived presence as a producer.

  1. Spiritual State (featuring Uyama Hiroto)
  2. Sky Is Tumbling (featuring Cise Starr)
  3. Gone Are The Days (featuring Uyama Hiroto)
  4. Spiral
  5. City Lights (featuring Pase Rock & Substantial)
  6. Color Of Autumn
  7. Dawn On The Side
  8. Yes (featuring Pase Rock)
  9. Rainy Way Back Home
  10. Far Fowls
  11. Fellows
  12. Waiting For The Clouds (featuring Substantial)
  13. Prayer
  14. Island (featuring Uyama Hiroto & Haruka Nakamura)

The Luv(Sic) hexalogy featuring Shing02 (2002-2013)

This history of the Luv(Sic) series as told by Shing02

As I said mentioned earlier, Nujabes and Shing02 were a real match-made-in-heaven so to speak. The entire Luv(Sic) series is a beautiful showcase of Nujabes' work throughout his life. From parts 1-6, Shing02 rhymes about all the different ordeals and pleasures that come along with love. Parts 1-5 were recorded during Nujabes' lifetime, and part 6 was completed by Shing02 and some of his other close friends after allegedly finding the instrumental he had produced for it on his cell phone just weeks after his death. Luv(Sic) isn't just music, it's a journey, and my absolute favorite piece of music in the world.

Conclusion

So that's my quick introduction to Nujabes, for you. I hope I've helped you learn more about him, and hopefully led some of you to continue listening to all the rest of his music. If you enjoy this style of music, I highly recommend that you go buy/listen to the compilation album "Mellow Beats, Friends & Lovers", which includes Nujabes among quite a few other really great artists. Sorry this isn't nearly as good as most of the other "guides", but I feel that a lot of his music speaks for itself, a story packed into every song.
