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.

Ruben Hein

It doesn’t happen very often; a talent that completely grabs you with his debut album. Ruben Hein is such a talent. This Dutchman seems to have come out of nowhere. With his album, Loose Fit, the singer/piano player or vice versa comes roaring onto the international music scene big time. Ruben Hein has pretty much everything to make him a big star: vision, presence, beautiful songs and most of all, oodles of talent. On his debut CD, Hein not only sings all the songs to his own fabulous piano accompaniment but also shows in an almost offhand manner what he is made of. No wonder then that the world-renowned Blue Note label is proud to release his debut album.

There's to much I want to share with you. But here are some (!) of my essentials. This is the stuff I like to listen to. So please take your time to listen to Ahmad Jamal, Bon Iver, James Brown, Q-Tip, Chet Baker and man more. I hope you like it! And I also hope I'm allowed to do this another time, so I can share more of my favorite music..(yes, you can Ruben!!)

56 WTF did they do to my music?!

by MOONDOG

The tape draws from original Moondog recordings and also remixes/covers/samples used by other artists. The title means Moondog may not have approved of all of them.
