Lofi music, also known as low-fidelity music
is a genre of music that has been compressed to reduce the file size and increase its portability. It originated in Hong Kong in 2014 but quickly spread, becoming popular throughout China and eventually reaching countries outside of Asia. The genre is most often produced using an outdated cassette player.
With the advent of digital music and recording, lo-fi has become a popular style among indie bands and bedroom musicians. The DIY (do-it-yourself) ethos that originated in the punk movement of the 1970s is applied to the process of recording and releasing albums. It has also been used as an alternative music marketing approach, with independent record labels eschewing the mainstream music business in favor of lo-fi production values and distribution, often without professional quality control. Lo-fi music, like many alternative styles of music, is difficult to categorize; it is generally accepted that it can be identified by its sound quality, but this view is simplistic. According to Stephen Thomas Erlewine, "the term was originally coined in the early 1990s by a group of post-punk revival bands who self-consciously avoided production values that rock fans took for granted." Lo-fi music often incorporates distorted guitar sounds, distant or obscured vocals and an overall sense of sonic clutter.
Lofi music is the perfect soundtrack for:
-Scrolling through social media
-Writing a blog post -Cleaning your house
-Looking for furniture on Craigslist
-Eating ice cream
-Going to work
