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.

With this mixtape, we'll let you hear some of the music groups and acts that played the EKKO in those 25 years. Some are intimate, others are loud and there's some electronic music on it, as well. Please enjoy, and hopefully we're able to make a new one in 25 years from now!

231 Town of Pants of Saints

by Town of Saints

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.
