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.

Great Mountain Fire

Great Mountain Fire is an indie rock band from Brussels who from early in 2006 have produced exciting and razor sharp pop songs, attempting the impossible and often achieving it!

For five years the band (previously known as Nestor!) grew and gained important live experience at renowned venues and festivals (Dour Festival, Nuits du Botanique, etc.) and made a few recordings such as their self-produced E.P. 'This Is A Party Favor'.

In June 2010, the band went into the studio to record what would become 'Canopy', Great Mountain Fire's first album.

'Canopy' was released on May 23rd 2011. It is a record of intrigue and substance, whose fine concoction of generic beats and pop simplicity will leave the Goth dancing and the sailor crying!

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.

226 The Installation

by Unruly Gallery

When installing shows at Unruly Gallery, we usually have a few cold Warsteiners, have a laugh and discuss art – including music. For this Mixed-Tape list I selected a few songs we discussed and played over the last year; a somewhat eclectic mix, including chansons, rock classics, pop and even contemporary hip hop.
