Great quote from this Paul Oakenfold interview answering why he thinks programmers often have a craving for electronic music...

“I think that it has a lot to do with being in the moment, or trying to find the moment, getting into a state of trance, if I can say that. And what I mean by that is, you really need to focus, you really need to get to a place, whether you’re hacking, whether you’re writing code, or whatever you do.

And it’s the same with me in the studio or DJing. I’m trying to get into this place. And then suddenly you lock yourself in and you’re on this journey… [Programmers and DJs] totally connect in that way.”
