I don't really like the rapping on this, but I like jazzy beats.
You guys know what else I can listen to? I'm familiar with some classics like ATCQ, Pharcyde, Us3.
You must not have listened to a lot of Nujabes productions, I'd say he can be very versatile and manages to switch things up.
from wintery dreamy jams
to summery chill jams
from grooving jazz bangers
nice mem :( you could at least give it a listen
I'm not going to say all his shit is incredible, but sometimes he really hits it, like when his own label put out a compilation cd, he did like 11 original songs out of 14 just for that cd, and they're amazing.
Hydeout Productions 2nd Collection
Are you fucking kidding me? The Luv(sic) tracks are the ones with the most basic fucking beat you can think of, I think all of them share the same beat
Did you check out Fly By Night? He grooves that cowbell like a motherfucker during the verses, how are the fucking luv sic drums more interesting than that? Yes I mad
lol I haven't actually heard any of them for like 3 years I just remember liking one of them. Relistening now you're right it has the most generic drums I can think of and that rapper is awful too.
Anyway I don't really see anything interesting in that track either. I mean he's obviously pretty good at what he does but there's nothing that makes me really wanna come back to it. Fly By Night has a cool sample though. I don't see why people put him on a pedestal. What has he done that Krush didn't do better 10 years before him?
Also there's just so many producers making that type of smooth groovy hip-hop. This Black Milk track is more interesting than any Nujabes I've heard.

Is there any actual ACTUAL jazz-hop? With improvisation, complex harmonies, really heavy syncopation, polyphony etc. that isn't just sampled straight from jazz records and looped indefinitely?
Do you have a link for that mate? I just got so lost in it
