Listen to Bequem's lo-fi single: Coffee Lounge

 


April 2023Bequem is a one-of-a-kind artist who specializes in creating music that blurs the lines between various styles. These include lo-fi, chill-hop, as well as tropical house, and many more. On April 16, 2021, Bequem dropped a single named Coffee Lounge. This studio track stands out as a truly distinctive example of what people can expect from Bequem's music, which is very diverse, but also atmospheric and immersive as some of the best chill-wave out there. The production value is off-the-charts, as the song immediately encapsulates the staples of the lo-fi style but without being too "on the nose" about it. In other words, you can expect some calming background crackle and noise, as well as some smooth melodies and a beat that might remind you of old-school pioneers such as J Dilla, only to mention one. Ultimately, this track has a cool concept at its core. The whole vision was well-executed, making the tune far from being distinctive and personable: a true lo-fi gem. The aesthetics of the production match the creative concept of Requiem's production approach as well, as it gives the audience a truly unique perspective of what this artist is all about. "Coffee Lounge" is a perfect calling card for Bequem, and it stands out as a really good indication of the kind of mood that he really wants to portray with this particular studio work.


Coffee Lounge by Bequem is highly recommended to fans of artists as diverse as Shierro, Kavv, Azido 88, and Loky, only to mention a few. Much like the artists mentioned above, Bequem is all about turning music into something that's a lot more than plain old entertainment: it's a deeper way to connect with the audience. Unsurprisingly, he has gained a huge global audience, especially on platforms such as Spotify, where he has over 360.000 monthly listeners as we speak. This is a fantastic achievement, especially for an independent artist and producer who puts so much passion and hard work into everything he does. There is a lot of thought and focus on quality at every stage of the production, and such a vast array of quality songs truly sets the bar higher for the artist, who shows no sign of slowing down.

Meanwhile, listeners can seamlessly enjoy listening to many of the songs that Bequem has released, including one of his most recent releases, "Hooligan Of My Heart," and the mesmerizing "Sitting in a Cafe," which the artist released earlier this year.
