How to make a lo-fi hip hop beat in 10 minutes (free stems included)

Working under a time constraint when making music can be a great way to hone your workflow and build confidence in your creative decisions.

In the video above, we took this idea to the test by constructing a lo-fi hip hop track in under 10 minutes. Check it out to see how you can quickly construct the rich harmonies, crunchy sound design, laid-back drums, and other elements that are unique to the genre.

If you liked the resulting beat we created and want to experiment with the stems yourself, feel free to download them here.
