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...
I didn’t foresee going almost a year before revisiting this concept! The good news is that we’re two away from making it a segment on its own. The greater news is that the fourth edition is weeks away. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves — especially when I laced something special in my opinion....Continue reading
I have to take you back a few months to set the mood for this one. I was about to hop on a plane; it was the most opportune time for me to finally go through a Chillhop Music compilation and see what it was all about. It was one of the most relaxing journey...Continue reading

2019 is in the books and we’ve tried as much (and as quick) as possible to whittle down the music we’ve enjoyed to our favorites. It turned out that, between four guys, we had a loooot of them — in spite of overlaps! In the end, we agreed to pick out a few major trends,...Continue reading
Trying to pull off a comprehensive year-end playlist at the last hour is not only close to mission impossible, but also a stressful endeavour that doesn’t make sense in the middle of a festive season. Still, here we are. We spent the year in the moment: constantly absorbed in the deluge of music as it...Continue reading
