If you're like me, you probably have a playlist of study music that could get you through the night. But there's nothing like free world-class music to help you stay focused.
The good news is that there are many ways to get your hands on this kind of music for free, including YouTube and Soundcloud. Here are some tips:
● Search for "lofi chill" on YouTube or Soundcloud. You'll find lots of great samples — this is a genre of music unto itself.
● The biggest problem with Lofi Chill Beats is that they're hard to find on YouTube or Soundcloud because they've been taken down by copyright infringement notices. However, there are still plenty of examples out there.
● Many Lofi Chill tracks are produced by long-time producer Christopher King who's been recording the music since the late '90s. If you want to hear his work, check out his website but be warned: it's not pretty (I think it uses Flash).
The only thing that brings me comfort is when I'm chillin' on my lofi beats. I feel like my mind is at ease, and it puts me in a great mood. Listening to lofi chill beats improves your mental health, focuses your thoughts, and helps you achieve better focus. The city flows through me, then I can flow through the city. I'm laid back as hell; I'm dropping rhymes like they're hot.
Lofi music is an essential element of city culture — and now you can get a taste of its laid-back vibes right in your home with this free study music Youtube video.
The track is laid-forward, a chilled mixture of synths, percussion and vocals that might have come from a laptop keyboard or cassette tape. It's perfect for chilling out alone or with friends — but it's also good for studying:
Lofi is a word that can refer to many things — from the music of the particular era it was recorded, to the sound of an acoustic guitar. But for this blog post, we're referring to this blog post.
A lofi or lo-fi recording is a raw, stripped-down production, usually recorded on a cassette recorder or in someone's bedroom. The term was originally used to describe punk rock bands from the early 80s who had limited-budget recording equipment. However, as technology progressed and home recording became more accessible, the term has become synonymous with music itself.
In pretty much every genre of music there are artists who have produced lo-fi recordings over time. These recordings are characterized by lessened production values and lower sound quality. Let's take a look at some of our favorite lofi artists:
There's a growing trend in the world of marketing that's been dubbed "lofi chill" — music that's simply background music, meant to be listened to while doing something else.
The style can vary, but it usually involves mellow, downtempo beats with a keyboard and some acoustic guitar to give it a more vintage sound. You could even call it "chillhop."
Lofi chill is being used for everything from workout videos to product promotion. A little bit of lofi chill can help your audience relax and stay focused on your pitch or video. It also helps keep them from drifting away when they're watching something else online. The sound quality is so low-fi that it almost feels like you're listening to someone whisper in your ear — perfect for producing high-quality videos that won't distract viewers.
