Music to code to

Over the last few months I’ve been compiling a list of artists who write music that helps me to code. This is what I call my “getting stuff done” playlist – I find it both aids concentration and gets you in the zone mentally.

The music I find I work best to is post-rock/electronic/ambient. Nothing catchy, preferably little or no vocals. This is something of a living list and I am always open to recommendations for artists that should be added.
