- 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.
