Insight Focus: The Best Ambient Music for Deep Focus and Concentration

Discovering the perfect blend of ambient and future garage with the iconic BLUME.

Focus, study, relax. Why BLUME mixes and ambient music are essential portals to improve focus and concentration.

When it comes to studying or working on a project, we all know that finding the right music is essential. If you’re looking for some ambient background music to help you get into a state of deep focus and concentration, look no further than the BLUME YouTube channel.

If you’re like me and enjoy diving into the origin of genres, we have a great blog post that explores the evolution of ambient music over the past 50 years.

Update: Shortly after writing this post, we quickly recognised the importance of mixes and how they are deeply enjoyed across the community. That said, we’re proud to share that Insight now upload weekly mixes every Sunday across  both our YouTube and Soundcloud channels! View our mix playlist on YouTube or Soundcloud. Enjoy!

Why Ambient Music Works

Research shows that ambient music can help improve focus and concentration. By helping to block out distractions and promoting a more relaxed state of mind, ambient music has become a tool for healing as well as focus. This is because when we listen to music, our brains release dopamine, which is a neurotransmitter associated with pleasure and reward. This dopamine release can help us feel more positive and motivated, which in turn helps us to focus better.

If you’re looking for soothing ambient music that beautifully blends calming electronica with field recordings, such as the sweeping of tides, check out the ethereal sounding ‘Dead Zone‘ by Autumn Glow, a truly immersive 4-track EP that is perfect for reducing stress and anxiety.

There is also more dreamy, drone ambient that puts more emphasis on the long drawn out chords of soft synthesiser melodies. Check out the 7-track album ‘Body of Water‘ from Tondchee, a stunning album that enhance feelings of bliss, comfort and solitude.

How to Use Ambient Music to Improve Deep Focus

To focus deeply with ambient music, choose a track or mix with a steady rhythm or beat. The goal is to create a calming and relaxing environment without getting distracted.

Once you’ve found the perfect mix, I suggest putting on some headphones and setting the volume at a level that is comfortable for you but won’t distract you from your work.

This is why BLUME mixes work so well. Not only does BLUME support an incredible variety of artists and producers across the globe, but their mixes are consistent and provide an incredible listening experience.

Check out the BLUME mix ‘Work in Peace’, an incredible mix that features Insight label artist C29 and their debut album releases ‘Unending’, an immersive 8-track ambient album.
