Any chill electronic really; Active Child, Bonobo, Chase & Status, Faithless, The Glitch Mob, Parachute Youth, Pretty Lights, Stay+, Tycho, VibeSquaD, etc.
If I feel like something a bit more amped up then I might put on Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, Flux Pavilion, Knife Party, Nero, OVERWERK, Pendulum, etc. I’m also a big fan of the mashups put together by Kap Slap.
Believe it or not, I’ll actually listen to most genres, but I find that I work best listening to the above. If it’s something that I can sing along to, my productivity decreases…
Usually anything chill, lounge and ambient. Jon Hopkins, Fragile State, Massive Attack, Solar Fields, compilation albums (Chill Out Lounge, Cafe Del Mar, Supperclub) and sometimes just some radio stations in iTunes.
Though every once in a while, I need some serious rock like Warrior Soul, Killing Joke or The Sisters Of Mercy.
Dang! Yall prefer chill music? I think its just my crazy brain, i need something loopy and crazy. @chrisburton, 25 tomorrow? Well happy early birthday man, and i for some reason thought you were older? Problem child was an amazing movie when i was younger, wasn’t there something in there about Kramer and if he saw something like a twinkie he got really mad or something? lol…
If yall want a spark of crazy loud music, check out Lamb of God, Pinkly Smooth, King for a Day(feat. Kellin Quinn).
Maybe i need to tone back my music and i might be able to be more creative?
Yes, Home Alone is a classic (first one)! Once you watch the movie Party Monster, well, you want ever want to see him in anything else again.
@JohnMotylJr Just make sure that your music doesn’t stop you from being able to ‘get in the zone’. You know when you’re in the zone because you might pause your music for a second, and then forget hit play again for the next 30 minutes! Luckily there’s an OS X app for that: http://takefiveapp.com/mac
