We're in Barcelona, dodging terrorists and finding our work groove. You're probably just starting or about to start school again - the evil spectre of Essays looms over you.
This track is going to help - here's the previous write up:
So, in the spirit of doing something different we're dropping a bit of techno into the essay writing playlist - we said we'd be eclectic and we are people of our word. This is the first track from a California duo Dr. Fuego - not a lot is known about them except for the fact they have the best name!
This is classic old school Trance Techno - coming in just shy of 10 minutes it's the kind of track you can have on repeat and not notice where the day went. The standout here is the combination of typical pumping bass lines and beat tracks with classic piano blues riffs and a killer synth track (or two!)
I've been writing to this for the last 2 hours - yeah - it's that good!

About The Curator: Andrew McCluskey
The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the dark forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top. They would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.
Although I've always played, I haven't always been a musician. Most of my twenties were spent working with people, buying and selling and learning how the world works. It was in my thirties that I came to America and focused on music and began to develop music2work2.

But as I’ve moved from ideation to manifestation, the energy of the playlist needed to change – solo piano is good for thinking – but 8 minutes of 130 bpm edm is great for getting things down
Out Of Reach – Cristoph, Yotto, Sansa

So if you’ve been listening to the playlist recently you know what’s coming. Last week’s track was all about setting the intent for change – away from the more relaxing ideation space of solo instrumentation to this week’s electronic track from Cristoph, Yotto and Sansa.

I’ve known for a while that the feel of the list was going to change – while piano instrumentals are perfect for reflection and ideation – at some point you need some energetic input to get your fingers moving.
The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the Dark Forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top, they would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.
As a psychology graduate I studied how sound affects human performance.
As a musician I compose instrumental music that stimulates your brain but doesn't mess with your language centers, leaving you free to be creative and brilliant without distraction.
As a curator I research how music can improve your life and create flow - I can tell you what music to listen to when studying for a test and why listening to sad music can make you feel better.
