I have had a few more flights since I got the idea to make a playlist inspired by lo-fi music — and Chillhop releases. In the previous volume of this burgeoning “Chill Fi Life” series, I was focused on making a great selection of instrumental music to enhance a smooth flight experience — or make a rough one less irritating 😉.
The positive feedback has been overwhelming and I’ve been itching to make another one. I was also surprised to learn that a lot of you found the playlist great for the workplace. And you were right! So, I picked songs with that in mind1. I also had the recent passing of the great MF DOOM and this second “Chill Fi Life” felt like the ideal opportunity to raise that proverbial finger in the sky. (Needless to say, I enjoin you to go through his catalog; it includes classics such as Madvillainy with Madlib.) With all that said, let’s take flight…
…And I invite you to kick back, put this on, and let all tensions flow away. Or, you could make yourself comfortable in your desk chair, set that hot cup of tea or coffee on your work table, crack those fingers and a knowing smile, and get ready to be productive. When that’s done, let me know how soon I should hook you up with another one of these 😉.
