It’s so easy to overthink, and I sometimes find myself spending more time in my own head than I do living my life. Music–making it or even just listening to it–is an integral part of how I process my thoughts, feelings, and general mood. When I catch myself in one of those introspective moods, just plain getting caught up within myself, the best thing I can do is take the long way home and find some space to clear my head. These tracks were made for anyone who feels the same.

[ Artist Bio ]

sftspkn (pronounced soft-spoken) started as an avid listener of smooth hip-hop beats. From that appreciation grew a desire to create.

In May of 2020, the New York native debuted with the lighthearted single “butterflies” and has since released a myriad of laidback music.

With an ever expanding discography, sftspkn has released tracks with several notable labels in the lo-fi genre and has garnered support from the likes of Chill Beats Music, Lofi Jazz Records, and Warner Music UK.

Not yet defined by a singular sound, sftspkn continues to refine their style while producing effervescent and evocative beats.

[ Release Info ]

This elegantly lo-fi instrumental of carefully selected elements is all about finding the long way to home when you are feeling lost or struggling with issues. Mellow guitars, chilled keys & dreamy pads will lead your way until you find inner peace and happiness in chaos.
