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.

128 Rockin’ & Rollin’

by WANNABEASTAR

I love loads of different styles of music so it wasnt easy to make a favourite list. I'm an electro dj and a live electro/punk/rock artist. But my favourite music to play at home for sure will be rock music. I love the lyrics, the heavy guitars, the raw and edgy sounds wich all together gets me in a great mood and gives me loads of inspiration. It broadens my horizon and keeps me rebellious for my time behind the turntables and on stage. So I decided to make this list a little bit more personal and about the music I listen to when I'm home dancing with my daughter.

244 Embryonic Journey

by The Cosmic Carnival

From the Cosmic to the Carnival. These songs tell our story from the very beginning up until where we are right now. Deep grooves and addictive drums, with a bit of reggae here and there. Blistering solos, and some psychedelic flavours. And there's this thing we have with harmony singing. No ‘80s or ’90s songs on this one, mate... The good stuff's timeless. Enjoy this fine selection wherever you are, whenever you want. Peace!

"It all started in my parents house where they used to play a broad blend of everything, slowly evolving towards a more electronic sound."

90 Kraantje Playlist

by Kraantje Pappie

This is a compilation of tracks that I've been listening to lately. A couple of tracks are tracks that I really love and some others are in this list because I kinda studied them. By studying I mean; I was listening to the structures within a popsong. I wanted to figure out if there's a formula in it so I can use it in my own music projects. Enjoy.
