Seeking New Focus Music For Coding? Try Loopsy Dazy

Follow Loopsy Dazy on Spotify

Loopsy Dazy is a live-looping acoustic-electronic project led by Mikey Dorje on acoustic guitar, synth, beats and effects, with frequent accompaniment by Eleanor Edgar on violin and effects, Brad Weber (aka Pick a Piper, aka Coy Haste, member of Caribou) on drums and synth and Adam Jenkins on bass.

This has been my go-to focus music of late, so I'd definitely recommend it either way, but I'm also recommending it because they are led by my brother Mikey. Mikey also writes code and is a DEV member @mikeydorje.

Follow them on Spotify or wherever you listen to music. It's great headphone music.

Try anime openings songs, lyrics won't affect as you won't understand a thing :P and there's full range of bits, I find it specially good for when I'm needing a performance boost.

System Of a Down + a Red Bull is a great convo when the dead line is coming over :D

"Can't stop" by Red Hot Chili Peppers also works well when deadline starts knocking the door 🎸

Hey @ben , thanks for sharing this! Super cool to hear my music is good coding music. Cool to see so many suggestions here as well.

I'm getting back into some coding projects after a few month of a music hiatus, so finally replying to this!

If you like coding to ambient music, this artist, Lowercase Noises is EXCELLENT:

Fittingly, I discovered Lowercase Noises on tonethreads.com (website I built / run)

Great reminder! I used to use brain.fm/. Their music is designed for reaching mental states. You can get more informations here: brain.fm/science
I had the luck to buy a lifetime membership for less than a year costs now when they were in their beginnings. But 50$ / yr is also fair in my opinion. I recommend to give it a try.

Most of presented playlists is not suitable for programming, specially when you work at pressure. so i think it is better for each developer to progressively listen tracks and delete ones who not good for him at work. sorry for english.

I just heard "underground," "sounds," and "La Lune".
Definitely worth adding to my playlists and following him!
Just awesome how the combination of so simple beats creates a nice variety that doesn't get boring over time πŸ‘

Reminds of a T shirt I saw at a conference. It said "Good Programming Is 3% Talent And 97% Not Getting Distracted By The Internet" :-)
