A Decade of Beats: How Chillhop Went From an Unknown Blog to Redefining Lo-Fi Music – EDM.com


If we had to decide what the soundtrack of the post-2010 Internet was, lo-fi would be the only reasonable answer.

What was once a score for the geekiest places on the web—spread by young kids in the form of amateur mixtapes with anime-inspired art—became a mainstream sensation that even Will Smith and Disney tried to exploit at one point.
