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.

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.

129 A bit different

by Microove

I made this podcast, to show that I have more to offer as a DJ then just a House or Techno set. I've always been a very diverse DJ and my preference of music has always been very eclectic. In this way I would like to show that to the public aswell. Hopefully you'll enjoy this slow BPM set!
