Biography

This is not an artist, but appears here due to incorrectly tagged soundtracks. If this non-artist appears in your charts, do last.fm and yourself a favor. Fix your tags by putting the actual artist name in the artist field. The easiest way is to use Picard.

There are four full-length Samurai Champloo soundtracks, as well as two singles. The names of the full-length albums are “Masta”, “Playlist”, “Departure”, and “Impression”. Featured heavily in the soundtracks are Nujabes, Force of Nature, Tsutchie, and Fat Jon, among others. Also performing over Nujabes’ beats are Japanese hip hop artists Shing02, who performs the vocals on the opening theme “BattleCry,” and Minmi, who performs the ending theme “Shiki no Uta” (“Song of Four Seasons”). In May 2007, Fat Jon’s Ample Soul label released a limited edition 3LP vinyl edition of the soundtrack: “Samurai Champloo: The Way of the Samurai.”

Some of the songs from the show are not available on the official soundtracks. Some examples of these are the songs “Obokuri-Eemui” (“Obtain Bearing”) by Ikue Asazaki from her album “Utabautayun” (played during Mugen’s underwater scene in episode 14) and “San Francisco” by Midicronica from their album “#501” (the ending song in episode 26). The most famous of these is the song played during the brothel escape scene in episode 11, which uses a sample from the George Benson song “Affirmation.”[11]
