The music 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:

Volker Meitz
Nightmares on Wax
Anima Sound System
Solar Quest
Minus 8
Le Wax

and various others.

The Mole Listening Pearls label has released a series of science fiction jazz compilations, get more info on
