I feel like grandpa Sean right now, having only recently discovered lo-fi radio mixes on YouTube. How long has this been a thing? Each mix title includes some iteration of "beats to study & relax to," which feels like equal parts earnest curation and blatant SEO witchcraft. I already feel pretty relaxed, and I don't do much studying, but I'll stick around for the beats.
One morning while meandering the relaxed, well-studied hallways of lo-fi radio high, and my inbox, a Denmark producer named Alex slipped me a note that said, "I have been following your posts on Indie Shuffle for a while, especially your lofi type hip hop beats. So i just wanted to send this one over and see if it was something for you."
