For this week’s post we are journeying into the genre of Lo-fi for some relaxing tunes. So what is Lo-fi? Lo-fi is music in which elements usually regarded as imperfections of a recording or performance are audible, this often includes the crackle of a record or an audible fuzz in the background. Hopefully this week will open your mind and ears into a new and exciting genre to listen to.

Lo-fi Fruits is an artist I only found recently. They mostly produce lo-fi covers of well known songs – but do also publish original material. I love how atmospheric all of their tracks are and how peaceful it can make you feel – I usually listen to them whilst studying. Check out some interesting examples below, there are much more on Spotify.

Tom Dooli is a producer and photographer based in Germany. His tracks have a real modern edge to them and interesting use of different samples throughout. I’m only including one link for this artist, but it is a full length album so you should be able to get an understanding of his style. If you really enjoy Tom I would suggest listening on Spotify or Deezer for a wider range of tracks.
