Carbon Based Lifeforms, Solar Fields, Emancipator, Bonobo, Hammock, Eluvium, Harold Budd, Brian Eno etc.

Carbon based is cool, Gadium is another nice one.

I burn through music while coding o_O

Here is what I usually go through:

- ASOT radio shows
- Armin Van Buuren
- Gareth Emery
- Dash Berlin
- Classical Piano (mostly)

If I run out of (new / not overlistened) content for the above, I resort to:

- AH.FM stream
- Something on DI.FM
- Anything posted by Kabbage1977 on SoundCloud

Dubstep all the way.Silence for intense problem solving and algorithm work.

This is an interesting choice. Has it ever made you fade into a dreamy world at any point?

Not really, but what I do find sometimes is the need to switch to something more uptempo after a few hours.

I'm surprised to see so many Armin fans :D

I dig the ASOT radio shows. Slapping that on keeps me working strong for 2 hours (with brief fetching coffee breaks). The only downside is when it ends and I'm left with that "now what" feeling.

Do any of you listen to deep (non-vocal) house either when coding or in general?

We seem to have a huge market for deep house music in SA, but perhaps the audience is a different demographic.

Interesting mix, although the giant tits are kind of a disturbance (see how long you can look at her eyes without looking down :p)

Hehe. A forum member made the mix. Listen to his other ones. Good stuff.

It's not as 'deep' as the other kinda house I hear, but it's still quite good. +1

More upbeat, feels like a DJ Kent mix, except he isn't repeating the tracks like Kent does every Friday.

12.56 - Definitely very similar to Kent.

I enjoy the odd Dream Theater album (their self-titled being particularly good), but some of my favourite bands include Anubis Gate, Circus Maximus (specifically their album Nine) and Darkwater.

More on the prog rock side, I enjoy anything Neal Morse is involved in.
