Its interesting how well this song goes with mapping:

Eventhough i don't listen to this style of music myself, that did remind me of some other few mappers that do.

Good find Stojke :)

Yeah, great choice. This sort of simple beat with great rhythmic flow has been a staple of working songs for decades; perhaps even centuries. The textile industry was built on a thumping beat and even sea shanties were used to get crews working in unison, not to mention the old railroad & cotton field working songs that would just about get slaves through the day. They all share similar characteristics.

A good beat is just a wonderful way to get a rhythm into your work, and mapping does seem to be especially susceptible to it.

Your favourite mapping song.

Mine is a fairly recent addition to my library, but it's a track that really gets me into a flow with my mapping. Note the similarities to Stojke's. It's a very simple beat at its core with a thumping drum leading everything else, and at a similar tempo.

True, plus with addition of some lyrics (Human voice) that's no too loud (louder than instruments) tends to relax me.

Usually I listen to some 2004-2007 house music (30H!3 Starstrukk), but some times I find a random DVD with music when I search for something in my room and play the songs from there (I have no idea how I got most of them).

I found that song on one of my old computer hard drives (which is now part of an Period Correct middle year 2000 build).

When I am trying to figure out some mechanics and general game play/level design specifics I mostly listen to known songs that fit the map theme.

I love to listen to some classic Serbian songs when resting like : Zravko Colic - Jedna zima sa Kristinom (One winter with Cristina)

I find this highly subjective.

Of course, it's music.
