Doesn’t music just affect our moods so much? Whenever I need more energy to work or to get myself excited before going out I always start by putting on some music.

Different music genres evoke different feelings, and here are a few of my favorite music genres.

Genres I love

  • Lo-fi
  • Trap
  • Techno

Lo-fi – Chill rainy night

Does “Lo-Fi beats to relax/study to” sound familiar? If not, welcome to this amazing and focus-inducing music genre. (Okay, I know that there’s been a huge hate-wave towards lo-fi music recently… But I still like it.)

I love listening to lo-fi music when I’m working or studying. Especially at night time or when it’s raining. It’s perfect background music that doesn’t require you to focus on it.

What is Lo-Fi music?

Lo-fi music is characterized by imperfections in the recording or performance, often deliberate. Examples of imperfections can be environmental interference such as bird chirps, traffic, and café talk. Within the lo-fi genre, some tracks can for example be influenced by jazz or hip-hop.

Trap-ish – Energized and focused

Trap music (and related genres) make me energized, as well as reminds me of how gloomy the world is. That combination weirdly motivates me.

What is trap music?

For me, it’s like hip-hop without the rap.

For a technical explanation, here’s a quote from Wikipedia:

Trap music uses synthesized drums and is characterized by complicated hi-hat patterns, tuned kick drums with a long decay (originally from the Roland TR-808 drum machine), atmospheric synths, and lyrical content that often focuses on drug use and urban violence

Okay, I know some of these aren’t really trap. But I’m not sure what else they are, so they are included here anyway.

Techno – Smoke and lights

This is what I enjoy hearing when going out.
