“Me & U” – Succducc
This song has the most energy out of all the songs in the playlist. With the high tempo beats and high pitched voice. It gives you that last bit of energy to finish your game strong. Me & U has a very funny vibe that allows you to stay calm and collected in a time of stress in your game.

“San Holo” – Show Me
Sometimes games can be frustrating and annoying to play. But San Holo takes you to a more calm and serene place when you listen to Show Me. It helps you cool down and regroup, and maybe even help you mediate through that level you just can’t figure out.

“Sand” – Atlas (Prod. Tomppabeats)
Calming down and resetting can be the hardest when you have had a day of competitive gaming. But don’t worry, Atlas can help you calm down and think about a beautiful beach. With some calming beats and amazing lyrics, you can remember all the amazing plays you just had.

“Helix” – Flume

This song, in particular, can really place you into any environment that you are playing in (especially fantasy).
