I know there was a lot of dudes from the older boards who followed his music. I just found out, really sucks. He was a really talented artist.

and his other album safe in steep cliffs is pretty good, i just bought it and am about halfway through. after the 1st song i thought it was all gonna be the same as soon it will be cold enough, but theres a few songs with a different sound

I read somewhere that he's a 19 yo college student, or was at the time of writing. I'm almost 19 now, and all i've dont at uni is master the science of strawpedoing and drinking from a frisbee, wheras he created that album? I hope he had no social life, it'd make me feel better.

If you've been on Strictlybeats you've probably heard of emancipator, my favorite joint by dude is First Snow, not too sure why though.

Anyone heard of a similar producer called 'Emancipator' Very Nujabes esque. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQpvCiYVvOc http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRgPIbSX1mg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ltXWrodjCY

The artist known as Nujabes was a producer... some think call it hip hop, jazzy, or experimental but to me as well as countless others its simply Timeless Music. His beats/instrumentals speak to a rarely visited part of the soul, he gained most of his notoriety with the Samurai Champloo soundtrack but thats only the tip of the iceberg. The vibe speaks for itself, but the majority of his music is perfect.

He meant that he'd rather have shitty artists die before the good ones

Why would you want anyone to die RGB lol. Bad music doesn't merit death, that's so callous :(.

Seriously shocked, the guy was such an inspiration and to this day his work in music is just amazing to hear and just lay there, chill, feel upbeat, be inspired..gah, seriously a true talent is missed. R.I.P..

Yeah I was going to make a thread too when I had time (4 AM right now), but yeah man..sucks. Even more talented producer, and it's shitty too because he was always under the radar. It's a shame.
