Lo-fi Summer Vibes Remix Event

Oh, the summer night, Has a smile of light, And she sits on a sapphire throne.” ~Bryan Procter

The distant hum of the street lights, an old radio playing in the distance as you watch a hummingbird dance around the feeder, the glow of understanding in the eyes of a friend as you sit in silence around a crackling campfire. Sometimes the subtleties are the focal point, and that’s what Lofi Summer Vibes is all about — listening to and capturing the smooth shift of summer as it begins its slow fade into memory.

What is lofi?

Lo-fi (also typeset as lofi or low-fi; short for low fidelity) is a music or production quality in which elements usually regarded as imperfections of a recording or performance are audible, sometimes as a deliberate aesthetic choice. The standards of sound quality and music production have evolved throughout the decades, meaning that some older examples of lo-fi may not have been originally recognized as such. Lo-fi began to be recognized as a style of popular music in the 1990s, when it became alternately referred to as DIY music.

We’re especially grateful to our very own Apoxode who is kicking us off with an especially crafted Lofi Summer Vibes Sample Pack!


In summer, the song sings itself..” ~William Carlos Williams

We’ll focus on pells and samples Aug 14-28 and remixes until Sept 12. As always, any file type is welcome throughout the event.
