Background

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.

Concept

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'.

Spotify / Deezer

You need either Spotify or Deezer to listen to the tapes.

Big thoughts come in small songs and just because Kuijken is holding back, the music is full of tension. 'Nowhere or Tammensaari' is their latest album and the next step in a career that slowly but steadily unfolds. I am Oak makes albums to listen to, not just a collection of singles with some fillers, it's a listening experience. In shows it's the same thing. At that time there is also a big chance that the music takes you away, wherever your dreams want to take you. This is Thijs' selection of music to take you on a journey.

190 The John Coffey Tourbus Experience

by John Coffey

John Coffey shows are known for their madness and the partying going on during the show. When we leave the stage, all pumped up and excited, the energy keeps on going. By the time we enter the bus for a long drive (usually with a couple of beers we begged for at the venue), one lucky bastard gets to be the DJ. The recipe is always the same: HITS. iPods are handed to the DJ from all sides as we loudly sing along to the jingles we all love so much. To share that feeling with you, we collected a handful of those hits. Close your eyes, enter the tourbus, and enjoy THE JOHN COFFEY TOURBUS EXPERIENCE.

218 Welcome to the Manners Lounge

by Manners.nl

Today’s true gent is a busy man: a demanding job, a vivid social life, a relationship or family, hobbies and a rigorous work-out regime. Therefore he wants to be able to get some proper relaxation. Sometimes he just wants to kick back, unbutton his suit, kick off his oxfords and recline with a beautiful glass of whiskey in one hand and a quality cigar in the other. At these moments, Manners.nl welcomes you to the Manners Lounge, a musical journey taking you through several styles and genres. We start with some loungy jazzy stuff and then take a trip through some soulful tunes. Let some surprising electro and worldly stuff seep into your soul before you move those feet to some genuine beats. After that it’s time to relax. Stretch, close your eyes and just mellow out. Kill the shuffle switch for this one.
