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.

Playlist


Sam Azami

I am an Amsterdam based dj/artist that, as every artist, wants to find, play and spread as much music as I can. I’ve played numerous clubnights and (inter)national festivals and always look for records that really have that special groove that deephouse-funk has. In the future my aim is to gain more experience in the festival season and grow as an artist through really playing my own sound. That people listen and think:”That sounds like Sam Azami's playing”. That would be cool.

232 Hidden Gems by Sam Azami

by Sam Azami

The playlist I’ve put together mainly consists of a mixture of deephouse funk. I always look for those songs that seem timeless to me. Songs that you can play anywhere, anytime and that still have the same power you heard the first time you played it. I’m quite a “digger” for records, so you can say that there are a lot of hidden gems in this one, played by artists that I admire very much.

by Yorick van Norden

Yorick (frontman of The Hype) was so flattered by the great reception his first mixtape received, that he was challenged to create a follow-up, this time trying to make the perfect soundtrack to accompany the first rays of spring.

I've pretty much accomplished to make a mixed-tape full of my favourite songs. I've listened to the mix myself and I noticed I couldn't wait to hear what came next. Welcome to my world!

85 Punta del Este

by Blaudzun

My pick for a hot but dark summer night on a perfect beach. These songs should be accompanied with the sound of crashing waves and lots of good wine.
