Lo-Fi is an interesting music scene. It has no major artists signed to labels and doesn’t really have live concerts, at least that we’ve heard of, but Lo-Fi is still a growing genre and it’s biggest growth has been on Youtube via the regular streams that producers and DJs use to keep people listening to their latest playlists.

The music is marketed as music to have on in the background while you study, sleep, or just relax. Other channels like Ambition promote their music based on the emotional state of the listener. We chose a stream that the channel has up for anxiety and depression. Lo-Fi hip hop is meant to be enjoyed on its own or while doing something important. It has a low tone and it’s somewhat unobtrusive avoiding a lot of vocals in favor of a variety of instruments.
