“The goal for this track was really to record the soft dreamy guitar tones that I love playing, and give them a more bright upbeat feel. Layering bright keys with the upbeat drum groove and the soft guitar ended up working so perfectly and melting together.”Mondo Loops & bashful
The first collaboration between the English chillhop guru Mondo Loops and the dreamy bashful comes out of the Stereofox release pocked and it’s named “Time Passed By”.
Mondo Loops comes for his 2nd Stereofox release, after the highly-acclaimed cinematic Late Night Tapes EP. He’s also amassed millions of streams across DSPs and projects that landed on MTV and Universal. His inspiration comes from nature, and the golden jazz era, as for bashful the ambient lofi space is where he moves into.
They joined forces on Discord to capture the melancholy behind the ticking time and fleeting moments in a single melody. It all started with a soft guitar theme sent by Mondo. Then bashful grabbed it, and together they laid the soothing drums, the elegant keys, and more elements that flowed together in perfect harmony. A piece created for us to stop for a second and appreciate what we have right now as we remember the times that are not coming back.
Mondo Loops, an established North West England producer, is renowned for his gorgeous guitar melodies and unique approach towards lofi. What started off just as a YouTube channel for guitar tutorials, evolved into a full-time job as a music producer who’s worked on projects for MTV & Universal Music.
