Not a day goes by without music in my life.

I’m sure many of you are exactly the same.

It’s a ritual that I think many a creative will adhere to daily.

Coffee. Quiet before the storm. Playlist.

But what music enables the productivity?

  • Lyrics. No lyrics?
  • 170BPM Banger. Something more pedestrian?
  • Specific frequencies to encourage neural optimisation?
  • A guilty pleasure from the 80’s?

For me, it all depends on mood and type of work.

At the minute, any of Floating Points faster paced remixes, the stunning Jazz drummer Yussef Dayes, Toronto’s Jacques Green, or the meditative wonderfulness of Mr John Carrol Kirby.

What one artist/song do you reach for when you need to switch on the productivity?
