“Lofi hip hop radio – beats to relax/study to” is a livestreaming music phenomenon. Over 40,000 persons are listening to the YouTube model of it proper now, and it is easy to see why: It is the quintessential background music—an ideal cocktail of melancholic melodies layered over meandering beats with a sprinkle of classic crackle. And now you’ll be able to have all of that however World of Warcraft-flavored.
In the present day Blizzard launched an official lo-fi remix of 4 of the brand new songs coming in Shadowlands. Each was created by a unique artist well-known within the lo-fi hip hop scene, particularly should you frequent the 24/7 livestream linked above. However no lo-fi hip hop track could be full with out an anime lady learning or stress-free, so a bunch of Blizzard artists whipped up bespoke artwork for every of the 4 songs—one for every of the 4 new zones coming within the Shadowlands enlargement that launches on Monday.
Whereas I am unhappy that these songs aren’t packaged right into a livestream I can depart operating for hours on finish, the person tracks are improbable. I’ve spent simply sufficient time with Shadowlands’ beta to acknowledge the songs, however it’s cool listening to WoW’s signature orchestral preparations damaged down like this.
You’ll find all 4 movies on World of Warcraft’s official YouTube channel, however we have embedded them under too. World of Warcraft Shadowlands launches on November 23.
