Your LoFix #12 – Feel Good Beats

Welcome to The LoFix, a column to share some LoFi & Chill Hop that I’ve recently discovered and love. Giving you that fix of chill; something we all need regularly. And if you’re feeling the tracks, do share them with your friends.

As we kick off the new year and in this twelfth edition of the series we dive into feel good beats that are going to put you in a happy mood for 2024!

This Right Here is the first tune that kicked off 2024 and is the perfect positive groove you need for any day of the week. Based out of London, Grandmaster Faff creates boppin’ boom bap beats with a nice touch of chillhop, the song encompasses both styles perfectly with the fat kick and lead horns that play off each other through out the song. Be sure to check out the b-side from the release too, going for a more laid back vibe. 
The one thought on my mind now whilst I look out of my window and see some snow coming through, When Is Summer Coming? Let this little gem warm you up with it’s smooth guitars and smooth beat. Teau is known for creating latin influenced lofi that you can definitely hear and let this transport you to one of their warmer countries. 
.multibeat, Louk & Noé Mina have teamed up for ‘Drop Out’ and each bringing their style to this feel good track, for me this song is all about the soulful horns and how they create that can raise the level of the track in an instant, which you hear in the intro of the song.. As soon as the beat kicks in you’ll be movin’ and groovin’ without knowing it.
A bit more laid back than the previous songs, but it is Truly Another Classic from Glimlip, Soul Food Horns, Søren Søstrom & Yasper. Taken from their ’12 Chapters’ album that is a showcase of their jazzy sound. The elegant piano kicks off the track and you don’t have to wait long till it’s joined by a beat and warm horn sections to raise the level as we dive further into the track. Be sure to check out the full album and let us know which track is your favourite! 
J Fletch & Erwin Do round off the selection of tracks beautifully, their ‘Jazz Hands’ cut that you could imagine being played out in an underground jazz club in NYC with the piano taking centre stage. Getting in after a hard day and putting this song eases the mind and soul, drift away with the piano melody and let the head bop to the jazzy beat. Both artists are relatively new to the scene and have been releasing for around a year, which is a testament to their professional sound and recordings that you should get to know in 2024.
