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.

74 ‘Fake’ Reggae

by David Kleijwegt

One of the first Tape-heads strikes again, rock with a reggae touch, rondos that don't like the rastaman and reggae with a twist!

116 Driving Home At Dawn

by Tim Beumers

When the sun sets after a long night and the world is still cold and gray, you need music. Music will guide you home. Music will keep you awake while the final miles disappear under your wheels. From start to finish, were your bed awaits.

225 HAARBAARBAAR LOVES NACHTDIGITAL

by HAARBAARBAAR

For 3 years now, I’ve been finding my way to Nachtdigital festival in Olganitz, Germany. “A playground for grown-ups” is what a lot of visitors call it. And they are right… A playground with quality (and often a bit strange) house music.
