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 music compilation while you’re chilling out or deep into a 1am study session? Read on to download each individual track.
