What music gets you in your headspace?

When I need to get amped up and start coding I usually rock NF. It reminds me to "Make it or make it"!

If I am in the zone, less words the better, so I switch over to Asthenic

Lo-Fi beats on Spotify, instrumentals are the one for me.

Def "Retrowave / Outrun" curated playlist on Spotify. Rarely any lyrics, awesome 80's synth. Reminds me of my childhood and any of the tracks would fit in a Stranger Things soundtrack. open.spotify.com/playlist/37i9dQZF...

Personnaly I tried some from Prog Rock to Thrash metal, from synthwave to Psytrance.

Without any doubt, ZZ Top, with its simple and sharp rythm, is the more efficient for me as a non-english speaker. I get some lyrics but it is easy to ignore it.

I made a playlist on Spotify for this exact purpose: open.spotify.com/playlist/2e1lt0w7...

30h:32m across 415 songs, hit shuffle and enjoy!

Actually I listen to a Dutch radio station with alternative music, kink.nl/
Lots of good music, not too much talking.
