Nobody will ever make beats as beautiful as this man did. The Jazz samples are gorgeous, equalled only by his skill in seamlessly melding them with his own beats and dreamy instrumentation. A consummate visionary, it is a tragedy we lost him so soon. RIP Nujabes.

Hi all, could anybody help me find the BIG - 'Sky's the Limit' remix? Maybe an mp3? That'd be great! Cheers, 45skid

I agree with amanu2408, crowdfund a vinyl issue through/for Hyde out! Ideally a box set of the three proper albums. Hell, let's think big: a separate reissue of the Luv(sic) hexology as second box. I'm all about scratching after rare stuff, horse-trading, and limited releases: its' a bit of what makes vinyl special. But f**k the ultra-limited edition BS with a Nujabes repress. His music was an amazing gift and should be heard, shared, and cherished, not hoarded.

RIP Jun Seba and peace all.

They should press Modal Soul on vinyl!
It would sell out soooo quickly, I would definitely buy it.
