13 Best Soundtracks for Chill Lo-fi Listening (Beats to Relax to)


If you’re studying, kicking back in the evening, or even prefer relaxing beats to listen to while writing or creating, these chill lo-fi tracks are perfect to put on in the background. 

What is Lo-fi Music? 

Lo-fi has become a music or production genre which deliberately embraces imperfections. Subtle atmospheric noises, hissing, and suggestions of dust on vinyl are all audible, giving lo-fi (low-fidelity, or low-quality) its recognisable aesthetic.

Lo-fi is huge this year, with streams on Youtube giving people at home a way to listen and even connect:

“I think Lofi streams are a great way to kill time, and meet people from around the world too.” – Johnny Laxton

Why not play this lo-fi compilation while you’re chilling out or deep into a 1am study session? Read on to download each individual track.

How we Created the Chill Lo-fi Video

To create our chill lo-fi video we worked with the incredibly talented Henrik Evensen who provided the Photoshop artwork for a beautiful countryside backdrop. We then roped in the undeniable skills of Jonathan Lam who animated the scene using Adobe After Effects.
