My guys give me shit about it sometimes because I guess I like to rock my shoulders to the music, I don't ever notice it but they call it "catjamming".
Rhythm is a constant in all organic life, I think it plays a very strong role in all of our psychology. I've psyched myself out in chess games by making two fast moves in a row, my whole mental atmosphere blows up and all the shapes and patterns melt into noise and craziness.
At least a zillion times I've been working on some troublesome code and my phone goes and instantly just disconnected from that thought.
Sometimes DJ's throw in abrupt breaks or adlibs, that irks me.
It's all rhythmic, it's just that not all rhythms are measured in simple beats. I have rhythms through the seasons, through a quarter, through a week of inspections or audits, I have a rhythm for when stress in general.
Idk what I'm talking about. I'll read the article now.
Some search terms also might be "future funk", "nu disco", "funky house/ disco house" etc. These are different spins on the genre.
I particularly like those 24/7 YouTube radio stations because they usually just Crossfade between songs with minimal nonsense.
Idk much about trance, I usually type something like "study trance mix" and just pick one.
Progressive house also might fit your bill if you want more best to your sound but less vocals.
Sorry if this isn't helpful. I don't have a big playlist to share with you, I'm not nearly that organized!
Since then, I listen to classic music when I drive, soft piano jazz when I work, and Sepultura before doing sports.
There are plenty of studies/articles that have discussed how music affects heart-rate (and therefore mood). Below you can find two I found worthy of reading.
With effort I can barely detect non-drastic changes to my heartbeat -- I am much more readily aware of changes to my mood.
And this story made no sense. Huge non sequiturs.
But then. of course. The text is just commentary on the video.
For the sites I visit frequently, I use the "element hiding.." to block columns/rows, basically stripping the 'noise'. So everytime I click on an article, I have already hidden the 'promoting' boxes/sections/columns.

Being aware of my heart beats basically gave me panic attacks which makes the pvcs worse, which makes my anxiety worse and so on.
I had to work at not noticing my heartbeat, per my cardiologists advice.
Anecdotally, daily calcium and magnesium supplements seem to reduce the frequency.
I'm sitting here reading this article thinking "My gods, I wouldn't wish this on anyone, forget about your heartbeat before it drags you into panic attacks!"
if one is mentally focusing strictly on the heartrate without thinking of breath/thought control, I don't see it working out too well..

In the same note, as a fellow drummer, I can say that drummers that study melodic instruments tend to play their instruments serving the music way better. Piano is probably my second preferred instrument, I've always wanted to learn it, if you can guide to some starting material or equipment, I'd be happy to hear!
A guide you say?! Funny you mention it this is what I've cobbled together for my students over the years. It's about time for me to give it another pass to further refine it but it is a reliable path towards basic keyboard proficiency. Let me know what you think.
I wonder if focusing on ones heartbeat employs the same underlying mechanisms that help self-insights happen.
I've always been 'overly' aware of my heartbeat and it has caused me distress, but since wearing a Fitbit 24/7 and being able to see that, no, it's not off the scale, things have improved. I guess that's a sort of very lightweight, passive version of what's going on in this research. Beta blockers have also proven to be very efficacious as a way of breaking out of cycles of worry/response.
Normally, your nervous system adjusts subjective perception to attenuate the sensations of your heart beating (also breathing.) With training and practice it is possible to become consciously aware of the physical fact of the hydrodynamic pulsations that are, have been, and will be a constant feature of your human life. The simplest foot-in-the-door thing to do is to feel your pulse (i.e. put your fingers of one hand on the right spot on the wrist of your other hand) as you enter a hypnotic trance.
The specific phenomenon I want to mention is that, as my consciousness became more and more fully aware of the pulse throughout my body I got closer and closer to "touching my heart with my mind" (I don't know how else to describe it.) The heart and circulatory system experienced from within is an incredible potent living energy flow. It was so deep and intense that I never fully merged with it, instead getting "jerked awake" like when you're dreaming and you start to fall and suddenly wake up instead.
If you experiment please be careful, and whatever you do don't force it: who can say if you might not give yourself some sort of cardiac arrest by wiring up the information flows in your nervous system the wrong way?
I think it's worth pointing out in this connection that Gurdjieff described hypnosis as being caused by a change in the usual pressure of blood flow.
