Drum 'n Bass helps programmer to concentrate shocker

If there's better music to put me into the zone than drum 'n bass, I don't know what it is. It definitely helps me concentrate. What works for you?

When I code, 4-on-the-floor techno, without a doubt. When I write documentation I listen to hard rock...go figure. :-)

Gregorian Chants are great for getting the brain in to Alpha state.

Detroit minimal techno. Not exciting enough to be distracting :)

House music with a lot of jazz in it, bossa nova and electronic music with a lot of latin influence.

Techno is definitely good, although I'm more of an IDM person than a DnB person. Most recently, it's been Bach, played by Glenn Gould (of course), Brahms (string quartets), and Chopin.

When deadlines are about to make the whooshing noise as they go by, freeform hardcore at about 180 bpm is a must, but hardstyle/uk hardcore/hard-nrg will also get me there.

Metal works sometimes, but most of the time I just start paying too much attention to the songs.

I wish I could listen to those tracks on last.fm right now. I've been liking the Frequent Flyer "Rio de Janiero" compilation lately.

GrooveSalad on soma.fm is my favorite.
