Perfect Playlist for Focused Writing: Part 4

Need some music to write to? We’ve got you covered. Same as last time, we’re coming to you with fresh music to get a mood going and put you in the zone. This installment features a heavier, more heady sound for all those who need some noise to drown out the rest of the world while you write.

Flatbush Zombies

Flatbush Zombies are a Brooklyn-born trio of underground rappers. The group have steadily gained popularity after self-releasing two mixtapes in 2012 and 2013, and have recently come out with a full-length album, which is explosive as ever. Delve into the best of what 90’s hip-hop had to offer with 3001: A Laced Odyssey.


If you like electronic synth-pop, you need to check out ODESZA. After forming in 2012, they quickly captured the internet’s attention. They now boast over 66 million SoundCloud streams of their ethereal, beachy EDM.


Nigel Holt, last year’s addition to Kanye’s GOOD Music label, has just released his debut album that’s part hip-hop, part punk. Critics are divided, but no one can argue that this guy’s got talent. Get an earful of HXLT and decide for yourself.

Mr. Carmack

Here’s one of those musicians you discover and ask, “how has this guy not been scooped up by a huge label yet?” No one knows, but let’s savor him while he’s doing his own thing. It’s all you want out of EDM: catchy and unexpected.


Don’t listen to these guys if you need a calm atmosphere to work. This noise rap trio will blow your ears apart with their heavy, nonconformist sound.
