With the release of Luv Sic: Part 6 today the 26th, I figured I'd extend the Luv Sic Part 1 - 5 mixes you can find here, and add part 6. Today also marks the day Nujabes died three years ago.
I'm sad to see and hear the Luv Sic series go. This series consists of my favorite ever songs. I can't begin to express how much love I have for these songs. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, Jun. Thank you. Shingo.
FAQ: "Why is this part 5 different than the one I'm accustomed to?" This is the 'official' Nujabes release from December 2012. The part 5 you're referring to is produced by Jumpster in 2011. Also, I looped the last 32 bars of the song before the beat kicks in, which is not in the original.
"Why do the songs sound like they play faster/slower than the original?" I mixed in 188BPM. So some parts really are slower/faster. I.e. Luv Sic 3 is in 190BPM, Luv Sic 6 in 184BPM etc. 188BPM was the most neutral to use.
