Music While Working
There is nothing quite like a good playlist to get you going while you're at work. Music just seems to make you work faster and better. That is, the right kind of music. Here at Red Palm we seem to fluctuate all over the place with musical tastes, with artists like Deadmau5, Lindsey Stirling; all the way to Pink Floyd, Nirvana, and Jake Hamilton. Needless to say music makes all this designing, web developing, and working with each other a much better experience.
Music for Designing
I like to stick to electronica for our design work. The steady beats, and flowing synthesizers seem to evoke more creativity from the brain. Albums like For Lack of a Better Name, by Deadmau5; and the Divergent Spectrum mixtape, by Bassnectar (which is a free EP available here) are some of my favorites when we are getting into the creative zone.
Music for Web Development
For coding websites, rock, dubstep, and drum 'n bass music seem to work best. The high energy of these kinds of songs help fingers to fly across the keyboard and get things done. Some of my top picks are producers like Nero, Zeds Dead, and the Adventure Club; bands like The Dead Weather, A Skylit Drive, Emery, and Led Zeppelin.
