As reported on The Find earlier this week, today marks the release of the fifth edition of “Luv(sic)” by the late great Nujabes and Japanese emcee Shing02. Listen to the full track below. It’s available for purchase over at Hydeout Productions and iTunes.
The beat of “Luv(sic) Part 5” is original work by Nujabes and Uyama Hiroto. The scratches are done by DJ A-1, which subtly gives the soft piano melody a more evident hip hop feel. ‘Parting’ is the theme of the song, which seems apt after the tragic death of Jun Seba back in 2010. The sixth and final edition of “Luv(sic)” is set for a release in February 2013.
