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.

Half Way Station

Half Way Station’s debut album is called “Moonshine” after the
homebrew strong liquor of the southern states of the U.S.A. Intelligent
drums, banjo, violin, electric guitar and piano with freaky delays make
an eclectic, psychadelic kind of folk. This record feels like the soundtrack
of a granular black and white movie that takes place in a deserted town.

This band from Rotterdam (NL) has a Do-It-Yourself mentality that we
remember from the punk area. They make their own tourposters and
merch on their own press.

"Their Moonshine is made to keep you going"

142 Life Changing Songs

by ED

"Each song on this playlist is special for me. They made a giant impact on my life when I heard them for the first time. For instance: Voodoo Chile really made me pick up the guitar to start making music myself. I hope the list will grow a little bit bigger in my years to follow...but not to big...because these songs are like best friends: you don't have a lot off them."

230 Songs of desperation

by Bart van der Lee

This is a very diverse selection of songs that are both lyrically and musically very appealing and inspiring to me. These songs captivate me thematically by the loneliness, intensity or eloquence with which it infallibly and relentlessly is dragged into your ears. At the same time, they are intriguing by the structure and the musical decoration. Each one awakes in me a euphoric feeling of a desolate and lonely existence, by realizing that this is the way life is, these songs offer me a sense of refuge and relief.

74 ‘Fake’ Reggae

by David Kleijwegt

One of the first Tape-heads strikes again, rock with a reggae touch, rondos that don't like the rastaman and reggae with a twist!

123 One Shoe Only

by dEUS

Since you woke up immersed in that legendary feeling,everything behind you is shining and all is evening. A letter from the government informs you about a lost soundtrack of your life. You had no idea whatsoever, but that's fine.
