How listening to uninterrupted noise helped millions to focus

Dave Lee for Ars Technica:

Winston has observed that while many types of music thrive on the Internet, lofi beats is, uniquely, a genre created because of the Internet to answer the cravings of those who, like me, aren’t seeking silence but peace.

I listen to a good amount of lofi on spotify, but I’ve found it isn’t nearly as endless or appealing there as it is on the official youtube channel.
