style for laid back hacking sessions
Science fiction jazz, can be described as a mixture of jazz, trip hop, drum'n'bass, electro dance, combined with a outer space feeling.
The music is very smooth, and makes good background music for programming (or sex, whatever you prefer...).
Science fiction jazz artists are:
Nightmares on Wax
Anima Sound System
and various others.
The Mole Listening Pearls label has released a series of science fiction jazz compilations, get more info on http://www.mole.de
