about

Inspiration

Inspiration for this albums title and tracks comes from driving around at night time when I first discovered lo-fi hiphop in 2015. Every night I would go out for a drive and turn on some of my favorite tracks and vibe out to them. This is something I still do today, it acts as an emotional outlet for me and for many other as well. on each track I tried to capture all the elements of the genre and include them from the vinyl fuzz to the classic vocal stabs, the LFO wiggle on the piano, and warm mellow samples and sounds. I crafted each track to have a very minimal feel and also give not only me but the listeners the feeling of nostalgia and some what intimacy.

Process

The making of this album took place in many different places which include Los Angeles, California; Chicago, Illinois; Louisville, Kentucky; and Richmond, Kentucky. All of these places provided many different types of inspiration. To accompany me during this process I had beautiful views of the city, many of my favorite anime, movies and my favorite lo-fi hiphop tracks playing.
