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.
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'.

Studio 80 has put this special tape together in preparation for the debut of their own personal Studio 80 stage at Mysteryland.
It's very simple, a compilation of music we enjoy at this moment and have enjoyed for years, you can play it in one go and it fits together as a set and at the same time it doesn't at all. A nice C12 compilation.
Here we have a fresh playlist from the Dance.nl crew. The playlist consists of a wide range of electronic music we like to listen to while we work. Hopefully it invites you to read some of the articles we’ve put online as every one of them has been written with the same kind of passion we used to put together this mix(t)ape - enjoy the music where our heart is!
Loves poppy but slightly obscure crossover-dubstep-rave-electronica-disco-witchhouse.
This list only represents tracks & remixes from the legendary Chez Damier & UK Jordan Peak. Mostly classics and pure dancefloor weapons. Friday 22nd of November they will be playing at The House in AIR Amsterdam. Enjoy!
I'm dragging some tracks into a Spotify folder at the moment... No idea if I can figure out how to get that to you... and a text... maybe in a little while once I'm really high... toedeloe, NSM
Especially for mixed-tapes he created a list of music that he listens to at home…ahh cute!
For the next one and a half hour we will take you on a trip into the house. Expect tracks ranging from groovy house to old school garage. Inspired by many different styles we made a selection of some of our all time favourites. Enjoy!
We've come together to select tracks that directly influenced our band sound. It didn't take us long to agree on this list, we're - luckily - on the same page. We'll take you back to sweet soul, super jazz and groovin' boogaloo. Enjoy!
