This is a really nice introduction to Drum & Bass for those who may not normally like dance music (the whole playlist) :smiley:

I’m listening to Smoulder. It’s what you might get if 70s Black Sabbath started a D&D campaign, Geezer Butler brought his girlfriend, and Geezer’s girlfriend turned out to have a better voice than Ozzy.

A little something different.

I feel like this piece has a powerful sense of urgency; I tend to put Hiromi Uehara’s Voice album on repeat when I’m on a tight deadline.

When things need to get done I usually reach for the weird dark-synth / metal amalgam that is HUBRID.

Here are couple tracks that are representative:

Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of old video game soundtracks, particularly those of the 16-bit era.

One of my favorites is Treasure Hunter G from Square, a game that was never localized for the West. I think its soundtrack rivals the likes of Final Fantasy 4, 6, and Chrono Trigger.

Gonna look into this. Thanks. Have you listened to Master Boot Record at all?

Yeah! MBR is great for getting stuff done, too. I almost mentioned him upthread. Any tracks or albums in particular that you prefer?

I’m also a fan of most of the synthy stuff on the Blood Music label.

Maybe not exactly Drum and Bass in all cases, but perhaps some relative oldies might trip your trigger:

Anokha Soundz of the Asian Underground

Nice one Ted! If you like the last two you might like this remix by Grooverider:

Although you might need to turn the bass up as I remember it getting slated for not having enough :laughing: (It’s when Grooverider, one of the first prominent D&B DJs, started getting into production).

I tend to put the Interrupt Request album on repeat. :slight_smile:

Do audio books count? I’ve really enjoyed The Art of War read by Aidan Gillen (Littlefinger from GoT)

Tho we could probably have a dedicated thread for them… shall I split your post into a new thread? :nerd_face:

Been listening to this on repeat (on Apple Music) since yesterday :nerd_face:

I’ve recently discovered the “Chiptune” genre for myself, based on @Ted’s reply in this thread:

After having listened to the suggested Labyrinth by Monomer I wanted to look for other music which has a keenly artificial sound. I already quite like to listen to the “RetroWave / Outrun”-playlist on Spotify but wanted more like it.

So I ended up at “EDM Chiptune” (here is a great playlist on Spotify). The cool thing about “Chiptune” is, that it trancends genres. There is “Chiptune Punk”, “Chiptune Rock”, “Chip-Hop” etc.; here is a good Reddit post on various good albums for various Chiptune subgenres.

So yeah, music is wild I guess. :smile:
