Most Influential Albums #3

May 25, 2018

Today is day three of the influential album list challenge, and my pick, although not exactly an album, is the Luv(sic.) hexology by Nujabes and Shing02. Luv(sic.) was envisioned as a cyclic journey through love, and more generally, life. It was written from the experiences of Shingo Annen (Shing02) and Seba Jun (Nujabes). Something worth noting is that the sixth and final track was produced after Seba Jun’s untimely passing in a car crash - it’s based on samples and recordings recovered from his phone, and is dedicated to and written about him. This album is available on Spotify, but is also well-mixed on YouTube here. A good pick-me-up for sad or rainy days.
