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.

225 HAARBAARBAAR LOVES NACHTDIGITAL

by HAARBAARBAAR

For 3 years now, I’ve been finding my way to Nachtdigital festival in Olganitz, Germany. “A playground for grown-ups” is what a lot of visitors call it. And they are right… A playground with quality (and often a bit strange) house music.

174 So that was 2012

by Basserk Records

So that's 2012 all done and dusted, what a blast. To try and put a marker in time we've created a mixed tape containing a selection of our favorite tunes of 2012. 2012 has been a good year for Basserk and our artists, our releases have caused quite a stir this year. We still managed to find time to participate in many brain cell killing activities, and during that process these tunes managed to stick to us.

198 Selected

by Woodkid

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.
