Anyone here also into Downtempo, Lo-Fi or Chill-Hop music?

It's my most listened to type of genre by far I think. I work all day with these relaxing background sounds, cook with it, play games to it, read books etc. Its ultimate chill, no thinking required music really isn't it?. Lo-Fi artists really doesn't even try to make tracks, instead its like sample loops to switch off too, but thats fine in my eyes. Downtempo I guess is the more upbeat and interesting side with more creativity.

Lo-fi

Chill-hop

Of the three I've mainly heard downtempo. Never really got into lo-fi/chill hop, but I know those genres have been trending recently.

n u a g e s - Dreams (60 million views on Youtube)

Emancipator - Labyrinth
Great hip hop-like downtempo/electronica track released this year

Used to listen a bit to music like this a few years ago, but now not so much anymore.

I forgot to add the genre Trip-hop to the thread title (how do i edit/do that?), Emancipator is an artist I enjoy too, alongside similar ones like Massive Attack, Portishead, DJ Krush, Nightmares on Wax etc.

Been recently revisiting my Downtempo sets and expanding and diversifying up a bit.....while you can lump a lot of stuff under downtempo as a parent genre there's a lot more detail underneath.

I do like the Chill Hop / Lo-Fi Hip-Hop scene too as its a bit downtempo and a bit hip-hop equally (kinda like trip-hop but without the same vibe) and it got quite a fanbase too. REally fits into lifestyle music where its perfect for studying and background work.
