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.

The Cosmic Carnival

Dutch colourful rock & roll band The Cosmic Carnival isn't easily defined by a single genre. Their music has many influences, mainly from the '60s and early '70s, combined with modern influences, which are carefully blended together. With their scorching guitar solos and lashings of organ, complimented by rich vocal harmonies, it's groovy, it's funky and it ROCKS!

The Cosmic Carnival won Holland's largest and most prestigious band contest 'Grand Prize of the Netherlands' in 2009. The following two years, they went on to play an impressive number of shows across The Netherlands and abroad, ranging from intimate living room concerts to large clubs and festivals, including Morrocco, Greece and New York City!

Their highly anticipated debut album 'Change The World Or Go Home' was released in 2012 and a surprising NEW album called 'Mon Cher Amour' just came out on Valentine's Day... 2014 is going to be the year of The Cosmic Carnival!

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!

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!

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.
