Yes. I think that this may go to the section of DJ/Hip-Hop Jazz.

i wish i could find better examples too. His Mushroom Jazz vol. 5 album is some of the best jazz mixed with hip-hop/beats ever made

Thanks for the suggestion.
Originally I did have Farina on here, but then I went on a purge through the DJ section and cleaned a lot of people out.
The first problem with Farina is that his discog has a lot of house in it. The other problem is that he uses a lot of standard looping techniques that so many others use. If you check most of the artists in our DJ Jazz section, what a lot of them are doing is something more creative and more like real jazz.
Farina is OK, but I think he would open the door to too many similar artists in the cut and loop trip-hop crowd.

Its all those house records that come with his full discog that is the buzz killer.
