Lab Overview

Often referred to as "the J Dilla of Japan," the love for Jun Seba aka Nujabes' brand of hip-hop continues to grow well after his untimely death in 2010. Metaphorical Music, originally released in 2003, is the first solo album from the late producer, whose releases prior were centered around vinyl singles. Heavily steeped in jazz and break beats, the record features production contributions from Uyama Hiroto ("Letter From Yokosuka") as well as guests verses by: Shing02, Substantial, Five Deez, and Cise Starr of CYNE. From the warm, hypnotic vibes of "A Day By Atmosphere Supreme" to the snappy "Blessing It (Remix)" featuring Pase Rock, the 15 tracks that make up Metaphorical… represent the core of Nujabes and Hydeout Productions' catalog, and this special edition cassette is essential for old and new fans alike. Also check out "Lady Brown," "Kumomi," and "Luv(sic)."
