Lofi heavyweights Phlocalyst and Mr.Käfer unite again for the second volume of their joint project "Now / Again" on Melting Pot Music.
But wait a minute … is it really appropriate to label "Now / Again II" Lofi? If you follow one of the relevant playlists, you have heard some tracks by our two friends for sure and yes they are heavyweights within that scene (check their numbers). But what about the music? "Now / Again II" is far cry from sad piano loops, fake vinyl crackles and played out SP-404 effects (or whatever the racoon in you associates with Lofi).
Let's call "Now / Again II" contemporary smooth Jazz rooted in soulful Hip-Hop instead. Executed with a great ear for strong melodies, sophisticated arrangements and an everlasting love for blue notes. You won't regret it.
