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!

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.

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.

215 Chillin’ out, maxin’ and relaxin’ all cool!

by I Am Oak

Big thoughts come in small songs and just because Kuijken is holding back, the music is full of tension. 'Nowhere or Tammensaari' is their latest album and the next step in a career that slowly but steadily unfolds. I am Oak makes albums to listen to, not just a collection of singles with some fillers, it's a listening experience. In shows it's the same thing. At that time there is also a big chance that the music takes you away, wherever your dreams want to take you. This is Thijs' selection of music to take you on a journey.

188 Herrek’s Mix Tape

by Herrek

This mix tape contains music from artists that I admire. All of this music has inspired me in the last years while I was composing and recording my own music. I like music that creates a world without specifically pointing a direction or telling you a concrete story. It makes me forget time and just enjoying the things that I am doing whatever that may be on that specific moment. Other songs I like for just being so pure and telling a story in such a delicate and sensitive way that I can do nothing else than listen and agree or cry along with the music. Some of the songs are from artists who are personal friends of mine and which I respect and admire for who they are and the music they are making.

77 Ollie’s Choice

by Olivier Teepe

A collection of tracks that (for instance) can guide me through a far away country in a rented vehicle driving on the left side of the road, where each track touches me deeply in one way or another and infuses me with energy, positive emotions and inspiration to continue the journey. It's not about the destination, but how you get there!

199 Wub and his candyshop

by Wub

Always tough to make a choice in all the music. These are some candies I took from my candyshop: melodic house, more crazy electronica and ass-shaking techno. I love them all!
