What is lofi music?
The term lofi music is used to describe the style of electronic music made by producers who use low-fidelity equipment. The quality of the sound produced by this type of equipment is usually described as being "lo-fi", so that's how this style of music got its name.
Lofi music is often associated with hip hop, jazz and other forms of music because these artists often produce their own beats. It has become a popular genre in recent years due to its popularity on Soundcloud and Youtube with many fans uploading their own creations onto these sites.
How did lofi music start in HK?
Lofi music has been around for a long time but it started gaining popularity in Hong Kong around 2017 when the internet became widely available. There are now several channels on Youtube dedicated solely to producing lofi tracks for people all over the world, which means that you don't have to be an expert musician or producer to enjoy this style of music. Many people have found success creating their own beats and uploading them online via YouTube channels such as Beatnik, Mr Nice Guy and others like them.
Lofi music is a trend that has been around for the past few years. Many people have heard of it but don’t know what it means. It’s a genre that sits at the intersection of hip hop, electronic, and jazz.
The roots of lofi music can be traced back to jazz in the late 20th century when there was an influx of young musicians who were looking to create a new sound. One of these musicians was Herbie Hancock, who created his own style of jazz called “fusion”. The goal of fusion was to combine elements from different genres such as rock and funk into a single song. For example, Hancock’s “Rockit” has elements from both genres in its production; however, other artists took this idea further by combining genres together like jazz-funk or even hip hop-jazz which is what we know today as lofi music.
Lofi has become very popular in Hong Kong over the last few years due to its unique sound and ability to blend different genres together seamlessly. The genre has gained more attention recently because of its use in many video games such as League Of Legends where players listen while playing multiplayer matches online with friends or competing against other players around...
Where to go to listen to lofi music in HK?
If you’re a fan of lofi music, you probably know that the Hong Kong scene is pretty active. However, there are some things about the scene that you might not know about if you haven’t been to a gig yet.
The first thing to keep in mind is that lofi music is actually pretty popular in HK. While it isn’t quite as mainstream as it is in the West, it does have its fair share of fans and concerts. The main difference between the two scenes is that most people in HK don’t like to go to shows alone, so they have to get together with friends or family members. That means if you’re going to go out and see some live music on your own, you need to be prepared for some awkward interactions with strangers.
Another thing to keep in mind when it comes to lofi music in HK is that many venues are located in areas where there aren’t many other things for people to do at night. This means that if you want to go out and enjoy yourself, but don’t want to spend all night at a bar or club, you might want to consider checking out a venue that has more than just one type of music playing.
For myself, I would love to start a lofi music cafe in hong kong
How to record lofi music in HK?
I started recording lofi music in HK because I wanted to create a unique experience for people in the market here. I wanted to give them something they couldn’t find anywhere else. That’s why I recorded all of my performances on a cassette tape deck and then put them up online for everyone to enjoy.
What kind of equipment do you use when recording?
I don’t use any special equipment, just an old tape deck that works well enough to record what I want. The only thing I need is a microphone and some tape so that I can capture the sound as best as possible. I also like using different types of tape depending on the sound quality I’m going for, such as high fidelity or low fidelity recordings. The type of tape you use will affect how your music sounds after it’s been transferred from cassette onto CD or MP3 format.,
How did you start recording lofi gigs and artists in HK?
The music scene in Hong Kong is actually very, very exciting. There's a lot of great artists, and we have been able to invite some of them here to record.
it's very different from classical music, because it's not written down on a page. It's all improvised, and it comes out of the air. So my job as a producer is to try and capture that performance, and make sure that it sounds as good as it does live.
I've always been fascinated by the inner workings of an instrument. I'd come into the studio in the morning, and I'd see that someone had taken the strings off their violin or their guitar overnight. It was like a ghost story! So I started asking what they were doing, and how they did that?
To be honest with you, every instrument is different. Even for an instrument like the piano, there are hundreds of different pianos out there. So you need to find the one that sounds best in your studio.
