Just stumbled across this Blog. Pretty nice topic, I believe. I am coming from the rave scene as well, but now my taste changed and I am listening to Trip Hop and Ambient mainly. One of my all time favourite in Trip Hop/Downtempo is Kid Loco. Probably you know this guy. Slick music somewhere in between Hip Hop, Ambient and Techno. Also I begin to favour Jazz and stuff like this. With Jazz, I mean pretty much the electronic version of it, like Thievery Coporation. In the Ambient section I really like to listen to The Orb, especially there song „Little fluffy clouds“ is another all time favourite of mine. So, what do you listen to during coding time?
