Lancelot’s featured Playlist (on Spotify): Playlist – Hacker Beats
For many coders, a necessarily fuel for productivity is our background music. Filled with the right combination of tracks, I’m able to zone out outside distractions and build momentum as I code. For me, what is most productive day-to-day changes significantly. Sometimes it’s classical, sometimes it’s rap, but most of the time it’s electronic. I find lyrics can be distracting at times, but for the most part I can tune it out.
Some of my favorite artists for allegro coding include:
- High Contrast
- Deadmau5 (dead-mau-5?)
- Calvin Harris
- Paul Van Dyk
- Booka Shade
