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"

190 The John Coffey Tourbus Experience

by John Coffey

John Coffey shows are known for their madness and the partying going on during the show. When we leave the stage, all pumped up and excited, the energy keeps on going. By the time we enter the bus for a long drive (usually with a couple of beers we begged for at the venue), one lucky bastard gets to be the DJ. The recipe is always the same: HITS. iPods are handed to the DJ from all sides as we loudly sing along to the jingles we all love so much. To share that feeling with you, we collected a handful of those hits. Close your eyes, enter the tourbus, and enjoy THE JOHN COFFEY TOURBUS EXPERIENCE.

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!
