Here are some interesting pages from the interwebs on the subject of lofi music...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lo-fi_music


this is the first thing you see at that link

"Lo-fi music
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Lo-fi" and "DIY music" redirect here. For other uses, see Lo-fi (disambiguation) and DIY (disambiguation).
Not to be confused with Chill-out music. "

Yeah dude... not sure why you are calling special attention to that line of copy, but in general, I think I was agreeing with what you said about the "real" lofi genre. Two of the three links support what you said about the origination of the genre.

What you are describing with youtube, and the younger generation's habits of consuming music pretty much affects all genres across the board. SoundCloud is hurting... and losing to youtube, if you look at them as offering similar things... but that's nothing new. Personally, I hate listening to music on youtube. I much prefer SoundCloud... but the model for music distribution and consumption is so fluid right now. Spotify is becoming more available as a tool for independent artists I think. I don't see SoundCloud as being relevant too much longer, outside of the truly independent artists using it to post and share their stuff... but not for "making it big" or garnering attention from labels. I don't think any pure consumers of music look to SoundCloud for anything... it's pretty much an artist community at this point.

Yeah, it's a changing model. Who knows how it will continue to evolve. Spotify seems to be holding it down at the moment, right? I like youtube for actual videos... posting a song on youtube with a visual loop or static image has always seemed pretty weak to me. Without the paid version of youtube you can only play a vid/song if its the active window on your phone. Anyone here able to speak to the paid youtube option?

i don't get it either, because soundcloud is dope, and when i was a kid, everyone had it on their phone. not just artists

i don't want to use spotify because you have no freedom to change your name or edit your tracks

don't you have to pay for it??

it's too constricting
