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.

Playlist


Kensington

Kensington is a four-piece band, a simple classic set-up. In contrast, their music is truly contemporary: fresh, modern and multi-layered. On May 11th 2012, they released their sophomore album, 'Vultures', on Universal Music. 'Vultures' is the result of writing sessions on three continents, in a year of explicit contrasts between personal situations and band-success. This record is without a doubt the most demanding and extensive endeavor in the career of the four-piece.

'Vultures' was mixed in London by Cenzo Townshend, England's most in-demand mixing engineer. After working with Editors, U2, Snow Patrol, Bloc Party, The Maccabees and many more, Townshend took Kensington's sound to the next level. In the fall of 2012 the band heads out on their most extensive headline tour ever, and with many venues selling out months in advance, it looks like it's going to be a intense string of shows.

160 The Legendary Bus Tour

by Kensington

This fall we are heading out on our biggest headline tour ever, so that means we're covering a lot of miles in between venues. This is our playlist in the van, some energetic driving songs, some mellow-after-gig-looking-at-the-starry-night chill out songs. Enjoy!

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.

199 Wub and his candyshop

by Wub

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!
