Best Lofi Hip Hop Playlists On Spotify [For All Moods]

Posted by Antonio Vianello on


Lofi playlists and lofi radio livestreams have more or less crowned themselves the kings of background music.

These chill beats provide a mellow, easy-listening musical experience, perfect for focusing, relaxing, or simply unwinding after a long day.

There are now an uncountable number of lofi playlists on Spotify, so to narrow it down I’ve picked 3 of my favourites.


  1. Best all-rounder: Laid-Back Lofi
  2. Best for upbeat summer vibes: Upbeat Happy Lofi Hip Hop
  3. Best for dark cinematic vibes: Cinematic Lofi Hip Hop Beats



Best All-Rounder Lofi Playlist: Laid-Back Lofi

The first lofi playlist on our list is "laid-back lofi”, a good all-rounder collection of chill beats which are not too sleepy but not too energy-intensive either.


This playlist offers a diverse range of sounds with over 100 tracks, including everyone’s favourite features like satisfyingly crunchy percussion, wandering guitar melodies, magical soundscapes and a sprinkling of jazz inspiration.


Some of the standout tracks on this playlist include:

  • the romantic, piano-focused, and almost song-like “Rainy Morning” by MONROE.
  • the refreshingly lush “Transmutation” by Steve Nguyen.
  • Charmingly nostalgic track “Summers Eve” from myself and Bcalm.


Best Upbeat Summer Lofi Playlist: Upbeat Happy Lofi Hip Hop

If you're in the mood for something groovier, this upbeat lofi playlist will fit the bill. This playlist features some jazzhop and chillhop music which is vibrantly cool and perfect for the summer season. They’re a little more attention-grabbing so… maybe not ideal for studying? (Though hopefully you don’t have much studying to do in the summer!)


Highlights include:

  • Siesta and Bonsai Beats’ funky tune “Tropical Heat” which features an addictive acoustic guitar rhythm plus jazzy piano and brass licks over the top of chirping cicadas.
  • The sweet and smooth sounds of Breezy and Jammin’ Beats’ with cheerful brass and guitar melodies.
  • Laid-back and sun-soaked dusty hip hop vibes in Juna’s “Behind Time”.


Best Dark Cinematic Lofi Playlist: Cinematic Lofi Hip Hop Beats


The third and final Spotify playlist is "cinematic lofi hip hop beats", which is perfect for those looking for a more dark and atmospheric lofi music experience.

This playlist features tracks that are ideal for creating a moody atmosphere in the late hours of the day, or when it's raining outside.


Some notable tracks include:

  • The stunningly dreamy atmosphere in “Orion’s Belt”, a collaboration between myself, Purrple Cat and Charlee Nguyen.
  • Satisfying interweaving rhythms and magical warmth in Eugene and muun’s “pathways”.
  • Heavily wintry piano and strings in my track “Always Drifting” from the Cozy Winter compilation album.


Thanks very much for reading! The next time you are looking for some great chill beats to listen to, be sure to check out these Spotify playlists.

  • Hi, thank you for the above suggestions. Are independent artists such as myself allowed to submit music for consideration to the playlists? If so how would we go about doing so? Thank you in advance.
