I voted Lo-fi/Chill. Right now I'm really enjoying Poolside FM 2.0 again! 🌴😎🎧

@de I'm usually a metal/EDM guy but lately I've been listening to a lot of Lo-fi and I gotta admit it's great for focus. Thanks for the playlist!

Classical wasn't an option so I picked lo-fi but I love Classical, too

@abadesi Oops! Should've mentioned it. I listen to it as well when the mood strikes. Listened to Toccata and Fugue in different forms (original. rock. dubstep, etc.) yesterday XD

@talwarutkarsh Nothing with vocals. Instrumental across genres. 1. EDM (For upbeat) - https://open.spotify.com/playlis... 2. Lo-fi (For chilled out) - https://open.spotify.com/playlis...

@kavirkaycee Love them Spotify playlists myself. Energetic Run 160-165 bpm is also great.

@talwarutkarsh Rather for me, the genre depends on my mood and it goes on to increase my productivity. So if I am too energetic I listen to Rock/Metal and work while headbanging a bit :P but if I am lazy or relaxed I put on some Lo-fi/Chill music to get in the groove. May be something is odd with me :P

@gaurav_shrishrimal Not at all haha. I think that's how most people operate and there's nothing wrong with that. I do it too sometimes. Sometimes I'd just want to listen to Coke Studio and nothing else, other times it would be a Bullet For My Valentine playlist.

@gaurav_shrishrimal Oh btw since you mentioned you like Rock, may I suggest a great playlist that works equally well whether you're working or going on a roadtrip? It's called Walk Like A Badass. https://open.spotify.com/playlis...
@talwarutkarsh Will give it a try today itself :) Thanks brother.

@andrea_uliana Ooh sweet! I'm not a big death metal guy but I'll give them a try.
Deadmau5 chill mix on Youtube gets the creative juices flowing.

@simon_w Sounds like a blast. I'll give it a listen. Thanks!
@talwarutkarsh Once you've finished that, try some Shingo Nakamura :)

It's been a while since I listened to any music 😀. For the last ~2 years, I listen almost exclusively to podcasts and audiobooks, almost all day 😎🎧.

@alexdevero Even while working? 🤔 I mean yeah they're both great but I don't think I could listen all day while still being able to process and retain all that information.

@talwarutkarsh I am used to it. Listening to podcasts and audiobooks is fine when I code (on 2.5x ⚡). However, I can't listen to anything when I write for my blog. When writing articles, no audio input. Complete silence.
