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"

85 Punta del Este

by Blaudzun

My pick for a hot but dark summer night on a perfect beach. These songs should be accompanied with the sound of crashing waves and lots of good wine.

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.

52 Just So

by Agnes Obel

Drink a toast to the sun. To the things that never come. To the break of the day. That is all I say.

by @Bruut (22tracks)

@Bruut unites the new and old world of core. The perfect mix of hardcore (and metalcore) music with a little bit of crossover.
