Lo-Fi is recognized across the world as a way to 'chill' and becomes the perfect companion to have as background sound. The Quarantunes channel primarily consists of many Lofi playlists with "quickly, quickly" "SwuM" "Harris Cole" "Idealism" "Sworn" "Jobii" "S I M" "A L E X" being well known lofi artists to feature on the channel.
