I know this may initially come off as a repeat topic, but I definitely think there is a distinction between my favourite bands/music (another forum post in off-topic) vs. my favourite music while coding.
So my question is, what is your favourite music/genre WHILE coding, and why? What music do you find ineffective, why?
I’m all about low-fi synthwave, a few decent playlists online for it (whatever medium you use to play music). The genre has a calming sci-fi feel to it, and perfect for late night coding sessions to me (although I’ll listen to it at all times of the day as long as im coding). Type of music that allows you to zone in on your work, and interesting enough to keep you tuned in too.
As for ineffective/worst music, really anything with lyrics or too fast/intense, I find it way too engaging and takes me out of focus.
How about you?
