Lobit (or low bit, short for low bitrate) is a musical aesthetic characterized by lossy data compression artifacts caused by encoding songs at low bitrates. Artists making lobit music believe that if a song is good, it can be appreciated at any bitrate or on any speakers.

The lobit style emerged as an avant-garde reaction to the perceived bitrate snobbery in the organized music piracy (on peer-to-peer networks) and net label scenes. It also shares a strong do-it-yourself ethic with punk ideology.

Lobit music is distributed primarily through net labels. Unlike most net labels, many low-bit labels do not focus on representing a single music genre. Instead, the catalog of each label reveals the personal tastes of the curator.

Because of the small file sizes of low-bitrate encodes, it is possible to download an entire EP from a lobit label in the same time it would take to download one song from a standard net label. This makes low-bitrate releases accessible to listeners who have only a dialup modem, as well as conserving space on a webserver.

lobit netlabels:
* 20kbps
* abulia concepts
* fashion proof
* floppyswop
* gainlad
* mp3death
* northamericanhardcore
* stars in rehab
