    Yeah, had some rough couple nights recently. Been listening to these YouTube-Compilations with sad lofi hip-hop and it just struck a nerve. I'm not producing beats usually, so bear with this little 'song' I just tossed up.

    Bit different from the usual post here...sorry.

    I feel bad admitting this, but I had a lot of fun jamming along with that. Might be fun to write a guitar instrumental in this vein...

    Mean the subbass? The lo-fiication process (TM) kinda' drowns out a couple of lows along with lots of highs, so that might be a reason. Kinda' intended, but I hear you! Thanks for checking it out dude.

    Haha,why feel bad? I'd love that man, thank you for listening. Love jamming to things like that myself.

    Nice, can you explain how you produced it and how you got the sounds? Cool

    Eh, just that it implies something you did was incomplete, without a guitar melody. It prompted a few melodic ideas I kind of liked, though, so who knows, maybe at one point it'll grow into something.

    Ah, well I made it to be simplistic and minimalist, so I wasn't going for a totally fleshed out idea. I could do that, but I wanna' keep these minimalistic if I make more.

    Would also love to make a totally hi-fi, flush, layered track in a similar style.

    That was fantastic, I dig the hell out of that. I really like your usual style but this is awesome as well, definitely keep at it! Although you did say this style struck a nerve after some rough nights so hope things are looking up for you dude. :yesway:

    Lofi Hip-hop is the best. Sounds good!

    This sounded awesome, but for some reason, the drums being on beat sounds a bit too clean for Lofi.

    Digging the song. I wouldn't mind the background distortion/noise to be a bit lower since it's a little overwhelming but that's just my own preference. Very nice work. Music is always a great outlet for any and all moods. Hope things turn around for you.

    Yeah I just went with the groove, i'd like to experiment with a couple of weird beats later. Thanks though!

    Thanks for listening man, sorry if the background noise was too present, I can see what you mean. And I hope the same dude, I hope.

    Thanks, no progress so far unfortunately.
