These are 12 lofi hip-hop remixes of my favorite songs from Clannad. I've always wanted to remix some video game music like this, and I'm happy with how this turned out. The ambient chillhop vibe should be great for studying and relaxing to.

The writing process was more akin to sound sculpting. EQ, reverb and delay effects help to warp and re-imagine these samples of piano and ambient synths. The tripped-out beats are suggestive of outer space, and perhaps other worlds.

Jagged yet pulsing rhythms emerge from the echoes. which help define the hypnagogic style of "dreamhop". This otherworldly vibe stays true to Clannad's dyadic ontology and magical realism. The melodies still carry all the love and heartbreak of the series, but transformed into a new vibe of their own.

If you've never experienced Clannad, you can still enjoy the music sans nostalgia. Maybe this will lead you to discovering this beloved game and anime. :)
