For once, I haven't been listening to anything else than the rain while I've been painting. (It actually really helped me to get into a good flow). I really have no choice either because there is no electricity in that little yellow house.
Normally I always have some kind of background sound on and lately I've been listening to radio interviews with artists such as Lerin and Broos (sommarprat), or songs such as the ones I've posted here.
When it comes to dance music I got my fair share when I went on vacation. Pictures from Ushuaia: Axwell and Ingrosso, Avicii and David Guetta. I used to listen to dance and house all the time before. It really helps me to get into a good mood, also I become much more energetic and efficient. Oh yes, it's perfect for running too!
