DIY HIFI is the musical project of Ian Bevis, a musician and producer from Vancouver BC. Formerly of the band Bear Mountain, Ian began releasing records under the name DIY HIFI in 2018.
DIY HIFI is also a made up genre of music. It’s called that because that is what it sounds like. It’s music made at home, with friends, usually on a laptop computer using different kinds of synthesizers, audio samples, voice recordings, and sometimes bass and guitar. It’s then mixed together until it sounds good and feels right. It usually makes you want to dance, and hopefully, inspired.
