Lofi house is a genre that isn't known to be adorned with vast musicality at its core. Although Yambow's latest single with Latas "I Knew It" exhibits how the genre can sound so musically opulent.

It's definitely the arrangement of the keys that lure the listener in during the intro, although it's the presence of that deep bass line that really brings the track to life and gives it a groovy flair. Towards the second half, the keys are replaced with these glossy synths that eventually complement the 303-like acid textures.

The vocal sample can't escape mention especially since it accentuates the intersection between jazz, house, and hip-hop.
