What music do you jam out to when you are coding?

Normally I throw on the Brain Food Playlist on Spotify or any sort of chill electronic. But lately I had been loving listening to Hip hop while coding or any sort of "high intensity" music.

I have to admit, if I ever want to get into flow I'll shove an Infected Mushroom mix / live set on and I'll get everything done so fast.

Oh I generally jam out to 80s synth pop music, among other things. Mostly stuff without lyrics. I find that if I'm listening to music with lyrics it tends to be a bit too distracting and hard to get into flow. I absolutely cannot listen to podcasts while coding.

Just another reminder that I need to finish working on my Spotify embeds PR. πŸ™„

Today I'm listening to a playlist called Gaming Anthems. I like Coding and Crushing it, too, and then everything else is probably super obscure. Some days I don't mind spending time with engaging lyrics, like Punch Brothers or Avett Brothers, because I know them so well that I don't really get distracted by them.

I wrote about this when my top songs of 2018 came out, and I will talk music with you all day. πŸ˜‰
