YouTube - ‪Free the Robots Jazzhole‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4T9r9_8Pd2s)
YouTube - ‪DJ Krush and Toshinori Kondo - Fu-Yu‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCCRI1Kf6Bk) (this album is really great, the trumpet is amazing.)

you could check out some DJ Cam, Pet Rock, Wagon Christ, Pancea.

I am well aware of the multiple comparisons. I know they have a similar sound and are in the same area of music. I listen to both

But compare this:
YouTube - ‪Nujabes - Steadfast‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luo73ngb7-o)

to this:
YouTube - ‪J Dilla - Anti-American Graffiti‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clm6NMhzbs0)

there are some notable differences in style in technique. This is my opinion. Quite frankly calling anyone J dilla, that isn't actually J dilla, is pretty dumb to me.

Can anybody tell me where I can acquire Nujabes music? Cause I've been lookin all over the place for his shit and I can't find anywhere besides like frostwire/other free downloads, which I don't use.

If you want some stuff like his - check out Mark Farina's Mushroom Jazz series. He mixes all sorts of trippy/jazzy/hip hopy beats into mixes. Also, if your interested, check out my "Soul Adventurer Mix" thread in this forum (it's called Check Out My New Music Mix or something like that), I think its still on the first page. I mix similar beats/songs, so maybe you'll discover some cool stuff there.

if you like flying lotus, check out shigeto.
YouTube - ‪Shigeto - Brown Eyed Girl‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgQGftLkmUk)
YouTube - ‪Shigeto - What We Held On To‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdu2rJlI9Pc&feature=related)

but i feel nujabes covers a lot of different styles, I don't really know what to compare him to. That DJ Krush album is sick though, and probably along the lines of what youre looking for. Along with
YouTube - ‪Tsutchie - Sincerely‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqmjsPRHtxM)

YouTube - ‪The Jonesz - On the go‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjYRQ1VbDoc)

YouTube - ‪Think Twice - The Piano Man Instrumentals‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0l9Uyee9pHA&feature=related)

I highly recommend you get all of those albums^

You guys should post album names
And I guess doesn't have to sound really similar, but just good instrumental hip hop artists

The shit you just kick back and smoke weed to at night

Tomorrow I'll go through and listen and deliver the posi's

Any Flying lotus album is the shit. Cosmogramma is the newest one but Los Angeles and 1983 are still great. and The Reset EP
