    Just wondering if anyone here's into the more Jazzy/Chilled side of Hip Hop? Not strictly UK but still fits in here pretty well.

    People Like Jazz Liberatorz, RJD2, Arts the Beatdoctor, Bare Beats, Modulok, Red Ants etc.

    Few tunes to get people started:

    So yeah, anyone got any more decent recommendations towards this end of the spectrum?

    A lot of Ninja Tunes stuff is at the jazzy end. Don't know artist names cos my ex took all the compilations when we split.:rolleyes:

    Guru from Gang Starr did a series of Jazzmataz albums

    Yer heard a fair few of the songs from Jazzmataz albums, some massive tunes on there. Not heard this Ninja Tunes stuff though i'll give it a look! Safe.
