Hi, thanks for being here! I just read your post! lofi beats can be replaced by other genres of music. But I tend to think they are special... some people love them and some even never heard of them. So time will tell. Meanwhile, lofi producers have started to produce music on mobile phones. For example, a piano app that is made for fun but actually can create beautiful songs with little practice. If you are looking for really good lofi beats this is the app you want to check out.
lofi music can’t be replaced because it’s too important to the artist.
Well I definitely think lofi beats and music can still be created if not continue to be popular. Artists need not worry about competing with the top artists in mainstream music or genres of music. Reason being is that it’s also purely based on listenership and preferences. People have different taste and so there will always be an audience. Nowadays I listen to EDM and Deep house type stuff, not really lofi anymore, but I still do enjoy it every now and then, so whether you’re a full-time artist or just some guy in his garage making tracks, you should definitely make more!
It's a bit of a double-edged sword, but the fact that there are so many different genres in the music industry now means that there are lots of different places for artists to go. The downside is that there is more competition, I think, than ever before and it's harder to get noticed. That said, if you can find a unique voice, you can stand out from the crowd. Some things to think about: Have an interesting story. Besides making music, what does your life look like? How did you start making music? Are you focused on any particular genre? Do you have any unique hobbies or interests? Engage with fans. There are tons of ways to do this - YouTube live streams, social media Q&As or good old-fashioned email newsletters all help build a community around your art. If people feel like they have a personal connection to you as an artist, they'll be more likely to remember and share your work with others. Make great music! This should go without saying, but the most important thing is that you make music that people love listening to. Focus on quality instead of quantity and figure out what makes your music special (or "unspecial" in Lo-Fi's case).
Conclusion: Lofi music and the "main stream"
The second part makes sense. There are even btw albums. The job for any artist is to find their own way in finding out how to provide people with music that they enjoy or feel something from. It's important to try different ways, combine new genres to see what fits. As for the first part... hm... Well, that's the trickier bit. Lofi isn't a genre in itself (as far as I know). In this case it stands for lo-fi, which means less-quality production. There are different styles of lofi music. When you google up lofi hip hop and lofi trap, you're bound to find something you like if you let yourself go through all the suggested stuff. Just take your time to do so (as well as I did), enjoy listening and have fun making your own tunes!
The fact that lofi music has made it out of the underground and into the mainstream will only help promote its popularity among young people. While a lot of the genre’s music is made for relaxing purposes, there are also plenty of artists who make beautiful music that enhances any person’s mood, and these artists are a valuable resource for finding ways to be more positive in your life. If you’re looking for an antidote to today’s stressful, fast-paced world, try taking a moment every day to listen to some lofi music while you meditate or relax. It may just be the recharge you need.
