A quick guide to what kinds of music I work to (stack-wise it is basically a party up front and business in the back):
I can't have anything with words as they get in the way. I usually go for something like Playing the Piano by Ryuichi Sakamoto, anything by Robert Hood, There Will Be Blood by Jonny Greenwood or, if I'm owning it and coding like a warrior, The Shining Instrumental by Dilla.
Vocals are fine! Which means a lot of Arctic Monkeys, Drake etc or even, if I'm owning it and coding like a warrior, an audiobook or podcast.
Give me some tips, coder people!
