just listening to this
I enjoy listening to video game and movie soundtracks. Mostly instrumental stuff. A lot of Final Fantasy music.
breakbot is great if you like something high energy and a little funky
I like Casting Crowns when im designing
I like to listen to the Frank Sinatra station on Pandora - it helps me to be able to sing along while I'm working, and I know all of the words for the most part so don't need to think to hard about them.
I enjoy listening to Post rock, ie: 65 days of static, god is an astronaut
I usually listen rock
I bounce back and forth from Pandora and Spotify, but top hits (radio, country, rock) playlist on Pandora give a good variety when I am sick of my playlist on Spotify!
I tend to stick with chill/relax playlists from Spotify.
Lately I've been listening to Boards of Canada, Cate Le Bon, White Fence and of Montreal... so sort of all over the place.
I usually listen to ambient-downtempo electric music while working .
Like : carbon based lifeforms http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCu8ii0rMmMqxUse8pxMMKJg
or similar artist from ultimae records
Mostly drum'n'bass, because it lacks lyrics and gets me in a good groove. When I'm not designing I like rock/hardrock/metal/pop/etc. At the moment I'm listening to Monster Magnet!
