i dont really know what you're asking for, probably on me though. i'd check out a lot of The Roots older stuff, off of CD's like Illadelph Halflife, it's got a jazzy kind of groovy sound to it, still good lyrically as well. it's more of a melodic sound for the beats, kind of nice.
I know exactly what you're looking for. Nujabes is a japanese producer who plays around with these sounds a lot. Heres some of his stuff. Fat Jon and Uyama Hiruto are pretty similar as well. The only thing is there is still that traditional oriental sound meshed in with it, but personally I like it
