Recently I did a musical post including some songs by a wonderful producer by the name of Nujabes. He was a Japanese hip-hop producer and DJ who recorded under the name Nujabes. His alias was simply his name "sebajun" spelled backwards.
On February 26, 2010, Jun Seba was involved in a traffic accident upon exiting the Shuto Expressway late at night. He died at a hospital after failed efforts to revive him. He was 36 years old. (Wikipedia)
I've just discovered this artist who is prominent in a genre of music called 'chillout', or 'lounge'. It infuses mellow jazz/asian sounds with subtle hip hop beats. If you haven't listened to his music then take a moment to enjoy this incredible artists sound!

Nujabes was a contributing musician to an anime show; Samurai Champloo. Whenever someone on the show died they would play his song Mystline...RIP.
