Yusef Lateef – Love Theme From Spartacus

In 1961 Lateef recorded the album “Eastern Sounds“. The album features Lateef’s continued exploration and passion for eastern music. This exploration for eastern music is highly evident in todays generation of producers. Madlib’sBeat Konducta Vol 3–4: Beat Konducta In India for example. “Love Theme From Spartacus”  taken from the 1960’s film “Spartacus ” is today’s sampled track. Something a little different, but well worth listening to with it’s haunting melodies. More after the click.

Jun Seba, wow where do I start. Firstly if you never heard of him I suggest you go and look him up him up. He records under the name Nujabes; a Japanese hip-hop producer and DJ. The dudes knowledge of music and production is ridiculous. Nujabes is renowned for his fusion of jazz samples and hip hop beats. Furthermore Japanese anime filmmaker Shinichirō Watanabe chose Nujabes to contribute to the background music and soundtracks of Samurai Champloo, an anime which blends a feudal Japan setting with modern anachronisms, especially in regards to hip hop culture.
