I’ve been fascinated with chillhop beats for the past few years and while the term could be interpreted rather vague-ly, there are a few distinct branches in it. Lofi hip hop and jazz hop are I guess the most closely associated (sub)genres, but there’s one direction I love the most. Ironically, it’s the kind of beats which I find hardest to find - the bossa nova beats.
I find Brazil as a country, culture and musical heritage extremely fascinating. Baile funk is another genre I love a lot, but bossa nova really won my heart. As a genre is also highly incorporated in jazz patterns. Plus, the message and the feel is just so… idk, chill?
So, a few weeks ago I set myself a deadline to come up with a nice selection of such mix to share with you guys and I am happy that the bossa nova beats mix is finally here and I hope you enjoy it.
The mix is also on YouTube.
