What music are you using for focus work?

I'm a big fan of, I used to use but I think I like FAW way better.

I usually play whatever Apple Music is recommending (usually artist radio stations), because I don't want to get distracted figuring out what music to play.

Everyone likes to come to my stream and chill because i play such cool music:

Or you can hit my Spotify Playlists up. The ones you get to are "Music I like" "Music I like 2" and my "Discover Weekly" -…

Lastly, there is the beauty of "Music for Programming" -

I've been listening to a lot of Vaperwave recently. Easy for me to stay focused while listening.…

I usually listen to calm instrumental music without lyrics like Bonobo, a lot of post-rock or Spotify recommendations for focus that mostly contain kind of meditative tunes

I only listen to song that I already know very well. In that way I don’t get distracted that much.

If you're more into relaxed / dreamy type of electronic music, I highly recommend The "Night On The Terrace" series by nottradio on YouTube. My recent favorite is this one:…

Love EDM :) But I often work always-on with my product!

The later it gets the faster and louder it becomes. Now listening to Loxy on soundcloud.

Music/sounds can be distracting if you love music. So my top three non-music, music ways to stay focused are(in no particular order):
1. Ice-breaker ship sounds:…
2. Skate videos. The clack, clack sound of people doing tricks are like a Metronome for keeping my head focused on what I am working on.
3. Noisly - probably the best app for mixing.making your own background noise. Weirdly enough mu fav is a combo of airplane propeller + firecracker sound from a bunk fire o_O

If I go for music the old LTJ Bukem + MC Conrad sets are quite good.…

Cool, was listening to Bukem just before I opened WIP :)

Basically, I use my own playlist from but also I would strongly suggest to try this Great experience with it!

Thanks for discovering me the musicforprogramming website! It's what I was looking for 🙏

I listen to these songs, and they work 100% of the time to get me into a deep flow state.

I find I'm most creative when I listen to this:…

(The trick with the first one is always starting it from the beginning and ONLY listening to it when I work. Starting it over triggers my brain immediately to get in a flow state.)

And I think deeper (strategize better) when I listen to this:…

(I do often write articles on this, too, though. It really depends on my mood which I choose while I write.)

Eternal Jukebox is a game changer. It doesn't work perfectly and its a big buggy, but it lets you loop a song infinitely.…
