Inspiration for this albums title and tracks comes from driving around at night time when I first discovered lo-fi hiphop in 2015. Every night I would go out for a drive and turn on some of my favorite tracks and vibe out to them. This is something I still do today and it acts as an emotional outlet for me and for many other as well. The title also stands for how far I have come as a musical artist over the years. on each track I tried to capture each element of the genre from the vinyl fuzz to the classic vocal stabs, the LFO wiggle on the piano, and warm mellow samples and instruments. This is the only line that I thought could be structured better. I crafted each track to provide a minimal feel, helping to engulf the listener in intimacy and nostalgia.
The making of this album took place in many different places which include Los Angeles, California; Chicago, Illinois; Louisville, Kentucky; and Richmond, Kentucky. All of these places provided many different types of inspiration for the album. accompanying me during this process was, many beautiful views of the city, many of my favorite cartoons, anime, movies, and music continuously playing.
