36 year old Japanese Hip Hop/Soul producer Nujabes has died in a fatal car accident, Hydeout Productions has confirmed. In a statement Shingo2, a close friend and colleague of the producers said:
“We deeply regret the loss of a unique talent and a close friend. Through his soulful music, Nujabes has touched so many people around the world, even beyond his dreams. It continued to amaze me how young listeners of all backgrounds learned of his enigmatic name, and expressed support for his music,”
This is incredibly sad news. Nujabes was so talented, I’m constantly playing his beats. Made even more bitter considering his young age. This is well and truly a massive loss for music. If you’re not aware of what Nujabes created, I beg you do some research – his talent was remarkable. If you love Dilla, you’ll love his beats. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
Update: I just read that Nujabes’ car accident happened on February 26th 2010 – the same day a magnitude 7.3 earthquake hit the coast of Japan. His death was not made publicity until today when his company Hydeout Productions confirmed it. He was buried by his family in a private ceremony. Rest in Peace.
Peace & Love
