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!

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.

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.
