Lo-fi (from low fidelity) is a music or production quality in which elements usually regarded as imperfections of a recording or performance are audible, sometimes as a deliberate aesthetic choice. The standards of sound quality (fidelity) and music production have evolved throughout the decades, meaning that some older examples of lo-fi may not have been originally recognized as such

Any discussion of the sub/community as a whole. I want to welcome anyone new, and try to give new life to potential producers that just simply don't know how to do it. First things first, by no means am I an amazing producer. Tajima Hal is also great, I am only starting to make lo-fi and I thought his music was really approachable. His beats are super straightforward and his drums aren't completely nuts like knxwledge's but his beats are really great. It's super cool to hear what technique's he uses to keeps his beats fresh and interesting without using ridiculously complex rhythms or chopping techniques.

The current wave of lo-fi producers lean on humor and irony in an attempt to be staunchly anti-authentic. It’s not just DJ Boring that’s caught my attention this year. Ross From Friends and DJ Seinfeld are two more artists making fuzzy house with names that don’t appear to take themselves too seriously (the former has written a track about pasta called ‘Durum Wheat’)  . Ross From Friends declined to be interviewed for this feature via his manager, which should tell you all you need to know about how seriously he takes his career. Meda Fury DJ Seinfeld - Season 1 EP. SOLD OUT.

Lo-fi may be a niche genre, but it’s become a notable trend on YouTube, the world’s biggest platform for music streaming. According to a 2017 Music Consumer Insight Report, 85% of YouTube users-1. Apple Music and this site may have ignited the streaming wars, but YouTube’s traffic dwarfs their userbases. Even if all the makers of the genre remain press averse, there doesn’t appear to be any end in sight for lo-fi hip-hop’s growth. Hour-long mixes on the platform have racked up millions of plays within a year, while 24/7 live streams continue to attract thousands of listeners who simply need some type of noise behind their homework or household chores. Lo-fi hip-hop can keep trending upward, so long as the genre works hand-in-hand with YouTube’s technology to deliver laid-back vibes to the modern masses.

I love the fact that he used to record albums into a boom box, and has a voice and singing style that are quirky but oddly compelling. If you want to combine mcsweetie's reccomendation with the MG, you can grab the second track from the bottom of the "live stuff" here. Also the first and fourth track on the jack and faye 7" at the top of the same page are amazing. PS- This stuff is OK to download. Sufjan Stevens isn't so much lo-fi as meticulously arranged. Mallet percussion rockin' in 9/8 isn't something I could just do. posted by kenko at 8:43 AM on June 19, 2005. Richard Thompson's Small-Town Romance live album is both lo-fi and acoustic, and quite good. posted by kenko at 8:51 AM on June 19, 2005.

Since we are talking Lo-fi, one of the very first things that I set as a constant approach throughout the whole period of production was recording onto tape. That turned out to be a great and very useful tool for the job. Nearly everything in the pack was transferred onto one of these two systems, sometimes to both! Gear-wise I mainly relied on my Juno-6 (with the tubbutech mod), Roland Chorus Echo RE-501 (Tape delay), Casio SK200, Korg MS20 mini, Korg Polysix, Korg Monopoly, Roland JP-08, Microkorg, Casiotone 101 a Roland TR-606 (thanks to dad again!) and a self assembled KASTLE modular synth by BASTL Instruments which spits out unpredictable.

Japanese minimalist graphics have come to set the tone for album and track covers, like Dilla's 2006 project Jay Love Japan. While sampling hardware such as Roland's SP models used to be a staple of the lo-fi community, these days, software-namely Ableton and FL Studio-reigns supreme. I bet you 50 percent of the dust sounds in lo-fi are added after," says emune, a beatmaker from Texas who has built a following of almost 40,000 people on SoundCloud. People just download a dust sample off of YouTube and throw it on there.
