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.

Stillman

Dreams of music is a show on stillman.nl – small portraits of talented musicians I’ve come across in my time. It’s divided up in episodes to let these artists tell the story that has brought them to today. It’s a captivating subject that gives an insight to world of these musicians.

I am a 27-year-old Swede who got to Amsterdam to explore his own world. I quickly got into the music world in Amsterdam with a small photo camera in hand. It didn’t take long before that photo camera was changed into a video camera and it hasn’t left my hand since.
