Here at Visualist, we use lo-fi to re-energise, increase focus and remind ourselves of all the internal tools that enhance our creative flow. Lo-fi music is proven to aid focus and enhance creativity, making it the perfect soundtrack to your creative work. Tune in for an insight into our favourite lo-fi creators and curators.

Garbeo by Made in M

Made in M spent a day intentionally lost in Berlin, trying out his friend's new film camera. The resulting, rambling footage inspired the transportive sounds that came to be known as 'Garbeo'—a colloquial Spanish term referring to a short stroll.

Why we listen

With sounds of city life playfully littered between rambling keys and bluesy trumpets, Garbeo is an invitation into an undiscovered city. You're escorted down forgotten alleys and through bustling market crowds. Before you know it, you're laughing and drinking with the locals in a shabby backstreet bar.

Listen out for

Olhos. The perfect soundtrack to a wandering mind.

Today Feels Like Everyday by Mama Aiuto

Ongoing isolation may have left you struggling to pinpoint when—or where—one day ended and another began. For those feeling drained and disorientated, Mama Aiuto provides a gentle, fleeting reminder of the beauty in the mundane.

Why we listen

Steady beats and familiar rhythms somehow combine with an impalpable twist. We tune in to shake up our perspective, put on our rose-tinted glasses and remind ourselves of all the little things that bring us joy.

Listen out for

Lax Incense. An opportunity to reflect on micro-pleasures present in everyday life, such as the sweet smell of incense.

Ghosts Of The Floating World by Kalaido

Kalaido narrates a tale of spirits, divine beings and faraway lands, reminiscent of your favourite bedtime story.

Why we listen

Hypnotic melodies, juxtaposed with omnidirectional cosmic chimes, help our imaginations run wild. Think unexplained oddities in unexplored lands. Ever wondered what a lucid dream feels like? This might come close.

Listen out for

One Summer Afternoon. Spritely and enchanting sounds to appease the child at heart.

Wild Mint Infusion curated by Visualist

The Visualist team concocted this herbal remedy to cure creative stagnation. Akin to the sharp awakening of an extra-strong mint!

Why we listen

We may be biased, but this skilful blend of restorative soul, infused with funky jazz, is guaranteed to keep you on your toes. This mix is pumped through the office as a mid-week refresher or called upon in times of inspiration drought. This is Team V's tried and tested pick-me-up!

Listen out for

Most Really Pretty Girls Have Really Ugly Feet. We cannot confirm or deny this strange theory, but regardless this tune is sure to bring your ideas to life.

Falling by Kudasaibeats

A sincere recount of falling in and out of love... Join Kudasai on the all too familiar rollercoaster. Warning: may cause tears.

Why we listen

Heavy bass lines mirror fluttering hearts and leave us thinking of them—and all their charming imperfections.  At Visualist, we believe that whatever you're working on, it should come from the heart.

Listen out for

'A Night Together'. Lose yourself in memory and channel those messy emotions into your work.
