Jun Seba (Japanese: 瀬葉 淳, Hepburn: Seba Jun, February 7, 1974 – February 26, 2010), better known by his stage name Nujabes (ヌジャベス, Nujabesu), was a Japanese record producer, audio engineer, DJ, composer and arranger who produced atmospheric instrumental mixes sampling from hip hop and jazz and released three solo studio albums: Metaphorical Music (2003), Modal Soul (2005) and Spiritual State (released posthumously in 2011). Seba was the founder of the independent label Hydeout Productions and released two collection compilations: Hydeout Productions 1st Collection (2003) and 2nd Collection (2007).[1] Additionally, Seba collaborated on the soundtrack for Shinichirō Watanabe's anime series Samurai Champloo (Music Record: Departure and Impression) in 2004.

Nujabes has been referred to as one of the "godfathers" of the microgenre of lo-fi hip hop.[2] In particular, his collaborations with Shing02 have been credited as having "pioneered a sound that inspired the viral 'chillhop' phenomenon, and popular YouTube programs like 'lofi hip hop radio – beats to relax/study to.'"[3]

On February 26, 2010, Jun Seba was killed in a traffic collision

here is my tribute to this artist through my music :)

    Wow.... An actually GOOD hip hop beat for once on the chart... that actually tries instead of just being "slap 200% overdrive on an 808" modern garbage. It's good to know the world hasn't gone totally crazy.

      I appreciate groove, personality, lyricism, and flow. If people are going to make terribly produced trash beats, they ought to make up for it with good vocal wordplay and delivery. If people are just going to put out dub instrumentals, I don't think it's much to ask to put some effort and thought into the production process. I just appreciate a good effort and vibe. I don't see how that's a racial opinion? Most modern commercial trap is basically just pure vibe with 0 soul.

    This is very well composed. The kick is so nice and punchy <3

    Personally I'd top this off with a nice smooth sub

    I suggest you add some hi-hats loop in 0:39 (I recommend you to do by yourself, don't choose the samples). So that will make some difference between 0:19 - 0:59

    Also, try guessing the right notes in 1:19 , that sound out of the right scale of this music.

    And if you can, in the 1:39 add some strings, because that sounds like "looped".

    Finally, remove the drums at the end ( 2:09 ).

    I guarantee that will sound better, at all, I like this one C:

    Sounds don't merge together. Perc/Drum work is okay, but I would personaly reconstruct and tone tune everything from scratch

      the tone of the melodies and samples is 49.00 I don't think there's anything out of tune, I think you heard the sub bass and didn't really like the result

    I mean, its good, but it gets boring about 40 seconds in y'know? I get its hip hop/lofi dgmw, but those kinda tunes are structured more substantially to keep things interesting

    its not bad. it gets very boring and redundant. i think the melody that comes in at 1:19 sounds a little weird. that arp in the background is super cool. overall not bad. its well mixed and it has some really cool sounds. nice work
