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.

147 Bigger than life

by School Is Cool

A journey into the influences of School is Cool. Designed to keep you on the edge of your seat, to be jarring, surprising and wide in it's span, in short: to keep you listening. 500 years of music encompassing pretty much everything. From strangely morbid native folk to the greatest melody in baroque history; from Kate Bush's idosyncratic style to a string quartet playing Arcade Fire's wildest track; from Black Francis' furious belting to Vivaldi's furioso; from a corny Bonnie Raitt ballad to gritty Skip James. Music is bigger than life. -Johannes Genard, singer of School iIs Cool -

118 Originals

by Auxiliary tha Masterfader

Some songs have become so huge, we almost forget that they are actually a cover. Auxiliary Tha Masterfader made a big list of Originals who are less famous then the cover versions. This is a sample of that list. Listen to it and know who really made that hit song you love so so much.

67 Cock Rock Love Songs

by Elle Bandita

Over the top poppy, slick instant hits. Kinda sums up the 80's. Other than that there's some nice grungy tracks as well as some feminist cock rock. <3 Elle
