2021-05-17 (Lo-Fi Beats to Study, Cry, Loaf On, Beat Off, and Pet Kitties To Edition)

How the shit is down, father-befrienders and father-befrienderettes?! Welcome to the Lo-Fi Beats to Study, Cry, Loaf On, Beat Off (Oxford comma) and Pet Kitties To Edition! For those out of the loop, Lo-Fi is short for low fidelity, and that’s a common characteristic of at least one instrument in all these tracks. Lo-Fi typically refers to instrumental hip-hop style beats, but as with so many genres, there are subgenres, sub-sub-genres, and super-sub-sub-genres, all with boundaries blurred here and there by XYZ artists. Yet again, verily I say unto thee (or some shit), genres are a great way to gain a preliminary understanding of music, but shouldn’t be used as measuring sticks to slap others on the wrists for daring to deviate. That garbage trash doo-doo makes you pretentious, elitist, and frankly, a nauseating bore. 

 

I hope y’all yojned the fuck out of last week’s flashback edition, by the way. I was going to make this one last week, but between business and procrastination for myriad reasons, I didn’t find or make the time to compile anything until it was way too late. I knew that doing one of these Lo-Fi editions takes a long fuckin’ time, and I didn’t have that time last week. Either that, or I did, and I chose to do other things instead. I dun-fuckin’-no. I’ll just say that this edition is comprised of 87 fuckin’ tracks, and clocks in at a chinchilla’s twat hair over 3 hours and 40 minutes. Recording, cutting, optimizing, naming, bouncing, tagging, organizing and assembling that many fuckin’ tracks is a series of tasks that requires quite a lot of fuckin’ time; trust me. Y’all truly have no idea how much effort I put into this shit, and I’m grateful beyond words to everyone who’s bothered to listen.

 

Anyway, let’s discuss a bit about the shit in store for us this week:

 

1. Some of these tracks are remixes from video games, anime & covers, and they’re all fantastic enough to merit the effort of sharing them with y’all. You’ll notice a good portion of those types of tracks come from someone named Rifti Beats. Excellent artist I just discovered in making this edition, so I hope you yojne your goddamn genitals off backwards throughout it all.

 

2. The Gang Starr track called Deadly Habitz isn’t really Lo-Fi, but that track along with the album it’s from are both fuckin’ awesome, and I’ve loved ‘em since the early 2000s. I’ve played Gang Starr a number of times over the years, and while most of their tracks would potentially be a stark contrast to the rest of the stuff in this edition, I thought Deadly Habitz went along quite well. You’ll see, or hear.

 

3. Coinciding with that, I included a number of jazzy hip-hop jams that also aren’t technically lo-fi, but if y’all are gonna be pretentious-ass fuckin’ purists like that, there’s the damn door. Well, okay, so I can’t realistically point out a door for you, but find one and walk out of it for me. If you can hang, I think you’ll yojne as thoroughly as I do. The yojne takes practice sometimes, and some of y’all been slackin’.

 

4. A decent portion of these have a somber, melancholic feel to them, but don’t go thinking that they’re cries for help or anything. I just often find songs in minor keys to be more interesting than their major key counterparts. In case you’re unaware, minor key songs tend to evoke feelings of distress, sadness, etc. whereas major key songs typically evoke more positive emotions. That’s why you’ll find most pop music is made up of major keys. Anyway, yeah, minor music can be phenomenally beautiful, and I’m sure we could all use an expansion of our respective sad song libraries. Personally, I’ve found it exceptionally bothersome when over the years, I kept listening to the same assortment of tracks whenever I was depressed. That sort of thing exacerbated the negative emotions for me, ‘cause on top of already feeling bad about whatever, I also felt a nagging blandness in the music I sought for comfort. I dunno, maybe I’m just some psychotic freak, and nobody else is bothered by such things. Ah well.

 

5. Holy shit, I found a lo-fi cover of Cardi B’s WAP. Thoroughly amusing, and you’ll hear what I mean if you stick around.

 

6. To anyone confused by the “Loaf On,” portion of the title, I once knew someone who mispronounced Lo-Fi as loafy, so it’s kind of become a running joke ever since. Now you’re fully in the loop, and you can yojne to your fullest potential! Isn’t that fuckin’ wonderful?!
