I just wanted to create this thread to see if anyone would come and post about their interest in lo-fi music.
Many people on this forum strive for the highest quality music possible. Building up very impressive FLAC files, as well as owning mind blowing equipment, like headphone amps, DACs, and of course, high end headphones, that all together could cost just as much and even sometimes more than the average mortgage payment, I can only dream of owning some of the gear you guys have! Many people on Head-Fi can pick up on the the very subtle differences of a 320 kbs file, vs a FLAC file. Or a 41khz music file vs a 92khz music file; picking up on the subtle distortions and flaws. And more often than not, the Head-Fier will end up preferring the sample with higher fidelity.
I'm simply wondering are there any other Head-Fiers that actually like to listen to lo-fi music? Is there anyone who actually likes to listen to the gritty, choppy kicks, distorted synths and strings with static and background noise all mixed in with a muddy bass line?!?! You're probably thinking that such a low fidelity of music production would sound horrible right? Well, to be honest, some people do a pretty good job at creating a nice Lo-Fi sound on their production. Like Tropes, MNDSGN, JWUSH, many many others.
Here's a YouTube video of what i'm talking about. It's borderline hypnotic lol
Here is another track from Tropes http://dirtytapes.bandcamp.com/track/dionysus
And here's another one from JWUSH http://defees.bandcamp.com/track/tintiode
