What's up everyone?  How ya doing?

 

I've been recently thinking about expanding my playlists or sets for music and was curious what different types you might be into when you're gaming.  I tend to lean towards more to instrumentals or beats since it doesn't drown out the game too much.  Here are some of the ones I've been listening too recently:

 

My go to that never fails me when I want some chill, jazzy/hip hop beats is this playlist on SoundCloud:

or

Into Math type rock?  These guys are fun:

Funk?  Pretty much everything Vulfpeck:

Also, this because its so freaking good:

Again, just curious of what you guys are listening to or the playlists you frequent.

I dont listen to music. It breaks my concentration. But when I used to listen? Classical (Bach, Stravinsky), and gangster rap (The real stuff, not this modern crap).

I have eclectic tastes, but when I feel like classical there are many good choices.

Dance with the dead.

 

Master Boot Record.

 

Ghost.

 

Daft Punk.

 

The Crystal Method.

 

Two Steps From Hell.

 

Throw them all into a bag, mix it up, and there's my playlist.

 

The louder and angrier the better.

No music for me when playing World of Tanks.  Instead I will have the TV on will have a ballgame on, or the WWE, or a movie so my attention will be divided at times.  This might seem like an issue that hinders my tank play at times but seldom are the times that I play where I am so serious that I am 100% focused.  

 

Btw, has anyone ever watched the movie Iron  Eagle https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0091278/?ref_=m_nv_sr_1?  Kind of cheesy and dated now but this topic reminded me a little of the kid who was flying a warplane while listening to his specific jams.  Fun movie!

Two steps from hell is pretty awesome.

I had the same problem but I adapted and decided that I didn't need in game audio, so I just started listening off of my phone.

I've been listening to a lot of Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree, Blackfield and solo) work right now. Quite a good British prog rock artist.

 

Porcupine Tree:

Steven Wilson:

Blackfield (Open Mind is probably my favourite song currently):

Then there are the more traditional artists that I enjoy.

 

Like Soundgarden

Or Stone Temple Pilots

 

Janes Addiction

Ghost

And some lesser known bands

 

Luxury

Smile

Oh I almost forgot about this underrated gem of a track

My playlist are all over the place, they don't have to match a theme. Otherwise it gets boring to me.

A few samples;

Excellent Haruri.  Another Crimson fan.  Maybe I'll toss on some Starless and Bible black when I log back on.   In between event rage quits of course.

What the heck, one more Cramps tune.

I've only listened to a couple Crimson songs, especially the one I linked.  Its so damn good!  I forgot how good the music in Samurai Champloo was!

 

Though I'm interested, this is just another way I can find more music haha!

Now on a second playlist; so current, last and next.

 

You guys are a bad influence. ;)

 

I know these tracks are kinda long, at least by radio standards.  But it'd be nice to get more than the occasional battle that lasts longer than the songs.

King Crimson has had quite a few iterations of the band.  The only constant, is Robert Fripp.  Fantastic talent throughout their history.  They are actually doing their 50th anniversary tour this year.  If you get a chance to see them Hambijon, you won't be disappointed.   https://www.dgmlive....urs?liveshow=on
