- TAV // Essential Listening 

Nujabes’ debut solo album released in 2003 is the perfect gateway into one of the godfathers of the lo-fi hip-hop sound. Heavenly hypnotic and effortlessly gorgeous - Metaphorical Music was many fans’ first taste of the hallmarks that would come to define a legend. Brilliantly fusing splashes of boom bap rhythms with fluid jazz melodies, the blissful breakbeat canvases painted on this LP are further glazed with the immersive flows of rappers like Substantial, Pase Rock, Shing02, Five Deez and Cise Starr.

Whether you’re a weeaboo who learnt of Seba Jun through Samurai Champloo, or a hip-hop head mesmerised by his kindred link to other beat gods such as J Dilla, Metaphorical Music offers an exquisite origin story to the late, great pioneer. - The Analog Vault
