Coding Tunes

I got tagged by Max Pool of {codesqueeze} regarding my choice of tunes while coding.

For me, it’s all about down tempo beats and no lyrics. And it started on DI.fm in the Chillout Channel.

I was listening to a mix that just really got the juices flowing called Ott Times. It was mixed by Morlack. The song lead me on a quest to find the artists in the mix, which included:

  • Shpongle
  • Ott
  • Younger Brother
  • Entheogenic
  • Shulman
  • Hallucinogen

Since then, I’ve managed to acquire almost every physical CD of each of these artists. I’ve put together a few of my favorite playlists that I enjoy while coding, chilling, or doing whatever. So that’s my flavor, one that’s worked for a while. I’ve since added some new artists to the roster, including Phutureprimitive and a few others. It’s amazing what you can find just lying in bed searching through the iTunes music store on your iPhone.

      IF you’re into the down-tempo-no-vocal kind of music, try this band:

      Bohren and The Club De Gore

      Some say its really creepy, but its really smooth “dark jazz”. give it a listen. I code to it all the time. :)
