This music for ‘maximum hacking’ is actually pretty cool

If you’ve ever wondered what kind of music the child hackers at DedSec are likely to listen to, I think that would be the thing on this “crypto music” channel we found. Whether you’re trying to break into top secret servers or just building a small PC that plays retro games, these tracks set the right mood.

YouTube channel Chill Music Lab says these easy-to-listen tunes are designed for “cyber productivity, maximum hacking, coding, programming, and studying.” Hacker-inspired music mixes two genres of music that I find out about: Chillstep and Future Garage.

I’ve been listening for a few hours now, and now I feel like I can write about crypto heists and corporate hacking all day while bobbing my head over haunting digitized voices. My favorite thing about this channel is the creator’s hacktivist manifesto in the description extolling the importance of online anonymity. It’s quite an atmosphere, and I love it.

If you’re a fan of synths that don’t hit your head, or just want to work on music that feels like it belongs in the background of Cyberpunk 2077, I recommend a listen. If you want more music curated by PC Gamer, may I direct you to The PC Gaming Show 2020 album, featuring new releases of songs from PC gaming classics including Team Fortress and Max Payne.
