Jun Seba (Japanese: 瀬葉 淳, Hepburn: Seba Jun, February 7, 1974 – February 26, 2010), better known by his stage name Nujabes (ヌジャベス, Nujabesu), was a Japanese record producer, audio engineer, DJ, composer and arranger who produced atmospheric instrumental mixes sampling from hip hop and jazz and released three solo studio albums: Metaphorical Music (2003), Modal Soul (2005) and Spiritual State (released posthumously in 2011). Seba was the founder of the independent label Hydeout Productions and released two collection compilations: Hydeout Productions 1st Collection (2003) and 2nd Collection (2007). Additionally, Seba collaborated on the soundtrack for Shinichirō Watanabe's anime series Samurai Champloo (Music Record: Departure and Impression) in 2004.

Nujabes has been referred to as a "godfather" of the microgenre Chillhop. In particular, his collaborations with Shing02 have been credited as having "pioneered a sound that inspired the viral 'chillhop' phenomenon, and popular YouTube videos like 'lofi hip hop radio – beats to relax/study to."

On February 26, 2010, aged 36, Jun Seba died in a traffic collision.
