Jokabi‘s Chilltendo 2 is a rich and warm addition to the lofi recordings of video game soundtracks GameChops has been releasing. Among the highlights for me are a pair of Xenoblade tracks “Agniratha” and “Refugee Camp”, but the whole album is a delight.
Jokabi has a distinct approach to the lofi hip hop genre, with an emphasis on organic instrumentation and natural soundscapes. Warm piano and choral pads take center stage on “Agniratha”, the album’s opener; mallets and music box melodies paint a picture of a rainy day on “Song of Storms”; whispering flutes and percussive pizzicato continue to sparkle all throughout the album. It’s the perfect vibe for a cozy day in, or for keeping focused during work or studying.Chilltendo 2
