High energy music is always great for coding. It’s not too distracting because it’s usually instrumental and fairly repetitive, but it gets you ramped up and ready to get some work done (especially when paired with a few cups of coffee).
When it comes to Benny Benassi you can’t go wrong with Hypnotica or any “Best Of” album. Lately though I’ve been listening to a bootleg recording of Benassi live at WMC Juicy Beach (Miami) in 2008. It’s just shy of an hour and one of the best techno/house/dance mixes I’ve ever heard. It just doesn’t let up.
If you can find yourself a copy I would highly recommend it.
A big thanks to Drew “Rukes” Ressler for the fantastic photo.
