Ask HN: What are your favourite flow music?
9 points by andersthue 11 months ago | hide | past | web | favorite | 6 comments
Me and my team are currently using Kiasmos looped for 2+ hours as our go to flow music, what other 2+ hours good flow tracks are people using to enhance their flow experience?


If you're looking for 2hr single tracks you'll be running into looped tracks or very long albums. For a group setting, pizza's reference to boiler room sessions is spot on. Those are dope and pretty safe bets.

I personally, will blast some Glenn Gould Bach Variations [1], or some Sleep Dopesmoker [2] when I really want a long collection of hypnotic sounds to lull me into flow.

Spotify has a 'deep focus' playlist that works really well. it's over 10 hours long. Two million people subscribe to it and with good reason.

- death grips

- holy other

- 2814

- 18 carat affair

- lone

- koyaanisqatsi soundtrack

- under the skin

- teams

- hong kong express

- infinity frequencies

- container

- moire

- freddie gibbs

- the velvet underground

+ the billion and a half or so boiler room sets on youtube

Odd to see Gibbs on this list. Guy's an animal. I do listen to his music all the time during work.

piƱata is extremely my shit

saw this illuminating interview/session he did with a therapist, I think it really portrayed the essence of his character: https://www.viceland.com/en_us/video/the-therapist-freddie-g... (cable provider 'paywall' iirc)
