HEADPHONES: Still discovering Nujabes, one year later

In the spirit of the 1 year anniversary of Nujabes passing, I decided to dedicate all of today’s posts to producers, the ones who have a hand in creating the soundtracks to our lives.  Along with the documentary, “Beat Makers”and a bonus edition of Lotus Lab w/ Mad Notes II coming up next, I wanted to also share a tribute mix to Nujabes that I discovered. Thanks to Jason Yang, I’m able to share this with you….


“…26th Febuary 2010 saw the death of Nujabes.  Saturday will be the 1 year anniversary and i wanted to create a compilation of the best tribute songs to him.  With the exception of one track all these tribute songs were already posted for free.  For some of the tracks this is the first time they have been in available on mp3.  And i was lucky enough to be able to include a unreleased Marcus D song.  So although you may already have most of these songs i hope its worth downloading for the ones you don’t.   I was’nt going to make a tribute mix as i didn’t feel the need to do one but after so many of you disagreed with me on Facebook i now feel it was right to create this compilation.  Artwork by LinkHermit.   Without further ado i present: Flowers for Jun…”
