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.

Founded in 1997 by members of the band Sfeq, it intended to provide an alternative musical resource in the Dutch music industry. “Dox” comes from the ancient Greek, Doxa, which means “idea”, or “opinion.”

Dox is celebrating their 15 year anniversary! With artists to be proud of, for once Dox itself will take the spotlight and throw a big party in Paradiso, Friday May 11th.

Today, Wouter Hamel is conquering Germany with his music, New Cool Collective and Giovanca are flying around the world to play shows in South-America, Africa and Asia, and Benny Sings is on an international tour as support act of Mayer Hawthorne. In short: Dox hasn't been sleeping the last 15 years. To celebrate this birthday, Dox' Family Night will come to Paradiso.

157 The joy of melancholy

by De Meisjes

Susan Sontag once wrote: 'Depression is melancholy minus its charms.' Even sad songs must contain an element of joy: no matter how blue, by their very essence they'll remain a celebration of what it means to be alive.

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.

136 Favourites

by Case Mayfield

Just a few of my favorite songs. I always use this playlist whilst walking from home to the station. The people seem a lot more friendly and happy when I’m hearing these tunes.

198 Selected

by Woodkid

I could have given you a playlist that was referencing exactly to things that equal to my album as Woodkid. But the truth is, that's not the music I listen to. The music I listen to everyday is much more mainstream than that.

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.

245 Festivalweide

by Bells of Youth

This mixtape is going to be our driving soundtrack for the festival season. We're hoping to play a lot of festivals this summer and there isn't a better way to get in the mood than good music! Listening to this mixtape we picture ourselves in the festival area surrounded by good tunes and dancing our asses off. We think it's important to support good music from your own country, so a couple of the bands on the mixtape are Dutch.

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!

195 Senatori Painting Tracks

by Selwyn Senatori

These are tracks that I use to get in all kinds of different moods when I paint in my studio. Each one has a special meaning to me.
