Our favourite Spotify Playlist for Coding

nanythery profile image Nadine M. Thêry ・1 min read

Such a random post! But I just felt in the need of sharing my favorite playlists while coding/working. I am always looking for new playlists to boost my productivity and help me focus.

I have recently started working in an open-plan office. This sounds nice, but the ugly truth is that I get constantly distracted by the noise and chatting. So I have bought a great pair of Bose Headphones with noise cancellation, which I found them to be a great invest (quite expensive, but worth it).

On the other hand, I also tend to get distracted by music in my own language (Spanish), and also by pop music. Probably because my brain forces me to sing along.

So, these are my most played Spotify playlist for working:

Tomorrowland Official Playlist
Inception OST
Focus Coding
Pure Mellow Jazz
Orgánica
This is Hans Zimmer

What about you? Which are your favorite playlists?

I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that's equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this. computerdeskcorner.com/what-is-app...

Music where the bass don't go like "bum bum bum buuum bum bum bum bum bam bum" but more like "buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuumm" you'll hear what I mean

Lots of progressive trance, I tune into Group Therapy with Above and Beyond every Friday, I am a bit less consistent with Corsten's Countdown and A State of Trance. Some days I go in a totally different direction and it is all hip-hop, emo, and punk rock.

If I had to leave everyone with one album to check out, it would be Airdrawndagger by Sasha. I consider it the best electronic album ever made.

Any slow jazz like Bossonova helps, you can find many tracks on YouTube which are mostly 2 hrs or more . It depends on what I feel like listening, sometimes it's classic rock sometimes its Hans Zimmer or Jon Williams. As long as it helps ;-)

I work from home now. But as recently as a few years ago, I was at a decent-size company in town that moved to a brand new spiffy office building. When they did, they got rid of our cramped, sweaty, stinky "scrum rooms" (that the devs LOVED), and they replaced it with the dreaded "open floor plan". I told them, as soon as we moved to the new building, that you could easily walk around the whole (open) floor and tell, immediately, who was actually doing any real work - they're the ones with the headphones on. They kept crowing about the open floor plan as a harbinger of "collaboration". But anyone who hoped to accomplish their tasks wasn't collaborating with anyone - they were blocking out all the random noise with headphones.

I have three principal moods when coding:

  • Designing: I use instrumental music so I can think clearly

  • Researching and Coding: When I have to read documentation, implement and test new things. In that case I like fast tempo music without vocals

  • Only Coding: I already have the designs, the tasks and I know the technology I'm using so I can listen to music with vocals

I listen to anything that sounds good, which for me happens to be mostly in the rap genre. I've found that I can be productive with any kind of music as long as I find it good.
