78 The Festival Warm-Up
A small warm-up for 'het Appelsap' feast on July the 31st. We selected tracks of a large part of the lineup of the festival. Get on your dancing shoes!
Wasn't it beautiful, weren't we cool... Oh those days! We used to mix tapes for ourselves, our friends and... for the cutest girls whom we would impress with personalized tapes, full of music they didn't know yet. For hours we would lock ourselves in our rooms, alone with records, 12"-s, singles, a turntable and a tape-deck. A perfect mix of two times 45 minutes, and you will be remembered for ever!
Who does not remember the time 'auto reverse' was introduced? Wow, that was innovation! And innovation lasted: now we have online libraries packed full with a huge range of artists and genres.
Strangelove (a creative advertising agency based in Amsterdam) had the idea to ask music professionals to make a Mixed-Tape; a very simple idea with a really nice result. Via Spotify or Deezer, we ask music artists, record labels, DJ's and all types of creative like-minded people to put together a unique and personal playlist. Sometimes it can be related to a specific theme / event / launch, or maybe the complete opposite of what one might expect from a certain 'character'.

This is the kind of playlist we'd have playing as we travel between shows across the land...
Some titles say it all, this tape is literally the story of Vulnerable. Every song got some elements of inspiration.
Seduction, attitude, and melodies that lodge in your head until you go to bed... Music is life, so get off that couch! These songs definitely kept me going while we were making the second Gram album 'Play Me'.
From the Cosmic to the Carnival. These songs tell our story from the very beginning up until where we are right now. Deep grooves and addictive drums, with a bit of reggae here and there. Blistering solos, and some psychedelic flavours. And there's this thing we have with harmony singing. No ‘80s or ’90s songs on this one, mate... The good stuff's timeless. Enjoy this fine selection wherever you are, whenever you want. Peace!
A small selection of tunes for the road selected by Efdé. These tracks will want you to drive on and on and on. And they will make your drive from a dull and boring experience into something fun. Some of the tracks might even get you home a lot quicker. Enjoy!

The World Minimal Music Festival will start this week! Prepare yourself with a tape containing the finest songs in minimal music! Carefully selected by Tino Haenen, the big boss of Het Muziekgebouw!
We love listening to loud and/or danceable music whilst on tour or working at home. But it’s also great to have a few songs you can really listen to when you’re completely alone or relaxed. A good mix of everything that has the right heart.
That shit is bananas
let's forget about the time.. let's relax and ease our minds.. we deserve to just feel fine.. oh yeah

Yorick (frontman of The Hype) was so flattered by the great reception his first mixtape received, that he was challenged to create a follow-up, this time trying to make the perfect soundtrack to accompany the first rays of spring.
Always tough to make a choice in all the music. These are some candies I took from my candyshop: melodic house, more crazy electronica and ass-shaking techno. I love them all!
We celebrate our 100th Mixed-Tape with a very special guest: Jason Derulo! Always wanted to listen to the same music as Jason Derulo does? He personally selected these tracks for mixed-tapes.nl.
This is an old-school collection of house music which I still listen to today to enjoy. Sometimes I even still play some of these songs because most of them, smash every club.
The sound of a positive generation, the sound of things to come...

I listen to music every day, and have so much to show you. So I made a very special selection of the songs that inspire me, make me happy, make me sad, comfort me and give me thrills and goose bumps. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do!
Altogether it's a mixtape that sounds a lot like a Lost Bear album, or how a Lost Bear album could be. You can check it for yourself, their album is out TODAY! Limshasa, get it now!
Twenty songs that got us where we are today; personal anthems, if you will.

The sun may not be shining full-force just yet, but Amsterdam Open Air is! They just released their line-up and this tape is just a selection of all the great artists playing at Amsterdam Open Air...
Since you woke up immersed in that legendary feeling,everything behind you is shining and all is evening. A letter from the government informs you about a lost soundtrack of your life. You had no idea whatsoever, but that's fine.
We always love to hear some music with our photography and vice versa. Photography and its intention to capture important moments and people in our lives are quite similar to composing songs. In a song the emotion of the one making the music is traveling to the listener. Traced, diffused or with empathy.
Celebrating our Express Non-Stop Tour!
A collection of tracks that (for instance) can guide me through a far away country in a rented vehicle driving on the left side of the road, where each track touches me deeply in one way or another and infuses me with energy, positive emotions and inspiration to continue the journey. It's not about the destination, but how you get there!

We dance 'til we are high and make music until we die!
As a true music lover I listen to a varying range of music to unwind. Being active in the nightlife I love electronic music. For this mixed tape I choose a variety of post-modern classical music to chill wave and indie, from lo-fi to minimalistic of course with an electronic touch. So relax and unwind, forgetting the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
We put together this special tape to give you a little insight as to what we listen to and what inspires us on a day-to-day basis.
Juicy Soul, R&B and Rootsmusic. These songs inspired them to write their debut album 'These Times'. Have some and let it take you away!
Most of these artists I've been listening to for a while. These are some of my favorites that I've been playing a lot recently.
When installing shows at Unruly Gallery, we usually have a few cold Warsteiners, have a laugh and discuss art – including music. For this Mixed-Tape list I selected a few songs we discussed and played over the last year; a somewhat eclectic mix, including chansons, rock classics, pop and even contemporary hip hop.
RobotRock, Dog Day Disco, Paradiso

A collection of songs that just might be engraved into our collective memory by the end of this year.
The first track on our EP is called B.E.A.T. After a long writing process the song really came together when we simply decided spell out the first word of the verse. From that moment on our little obsession with finding the best spelled out songs began. And so we didn’t really have to think long about a theme when you guys asked us to make a M.I.X.T.A.P.E. Enjoy!

I love loads of different styles of music so it wasnt easy to make a favourite list. I'm an electro dj and a live electro/punk/rock artist. But my favourite music to play at home for sure will be rock music. I love the lyrics, the heavy guitars, the raw and edgy sounds wich all together gets me in a great mood and gives me loads of inspiration. It broadens my horizon and keeps me rebellious for my time behind the turntables and on stage. So I decided to make this list a little bit more personal and about the music I listen to when I'm home dancing with my daughter.
Pittug loves to let you enjoy some good music. The Amsterdam based brand is known for its fine taste. Therefore we put together a mixed-tape with some great artists and songs from past to present.
Something for your mind, body and soul. It can lift you up or set you down. Great artists, spectacular songs.
It's about soul, groove and feeling the moment as it speaks directly to you.
Rudeboy: If music is beauty, then I see the aesthetics in being an agent of chaos. If it was a language then I speak it in many different ways and if it was limited to one rule then I chose to be the ringleader of the rebelrouser's ball . Awkwardness, loudness and hardcore, emotional, acoustics are the same...it means poignancy.

An office-friendly impression of the event Music in the House which covers five sets influenced by five periods in time. Music in the House will be held in a brand new location, 10 minutes from Amsterdam Central station by bike. VIDEO
Over the top poppy, slick instant hits. Kinda sums up the 80's. Other than that there's some nice grungy tracks as well as some feminist cock rock. <3 Elle
A Playlist of the first Dutch edition of [PIAS] NITES in Het Klokgebouw in Eindhoven, Holland – An eclectic event with supreme acts like dEUS, Crystal Fighters, Pete Philly, Vitalic and Balthazar.
These tunes are a mix of songs we both love. They bring back good memories. Gigs at festivals or clubs where the crowd lifts you up, party's abroad, but also us having fun and sing along while driving the car on to a next gig. Enjoy
I made this podcast, to show that I have more to offer as a DJ then just a House or Techno set. I've always been a very diverse DJ and my preference of music has always been very eclectic. In this way I would like to show that to the public aswell. Hopefully you'll enjoy this slow BPM set!
These are the tracks that made me smile, feel groovy and feel good in the last couple of months.. Most of this music I heard, were when travelling in the tour bus with New Cool Collective, every band member using Spotify in turns .. Hail Technology!
Growing up in the great '80s creating mix tapes, for yourself or other people, was something special. Anyway I hope you like my selection. I’ve created it especially for you.
A list full of Fleet Foxes, Eddie Vedder and also some Emiliana torrini. Mucho like!
I could have given you a playlist that was referencing exactly to things that equal to my album as Woodkid. But the truth is, that's not the music I listen to. The music I listen to everyday is much more mainstream than that.
