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.

Nuno Dos Santos

Living and breathing the music he stands for, Nuno dos Santos has been working tirelessly for years, becoming one of countries biggest underground names. His residency at TrouwAmsterdam and the recent launch of his very own label Something Happening Somewhere only partly proves the high standard he’s reached these days. It’s his sheer musical knowledge that truly proves the love he has for the art of being a DJ.

236 HiFi Entertainment

by Nuno Dos Santos

HiFi is the joint residency of Patrice Bäumel and I at TrouwAmsterdam. It's a night that flirts with Indie, Electronica, Disco & Techno. I tried to reflect this in a 2 hour mix-tape! Enjoy!

142 Life Changing Songs

by ED

"Each song on this playlist is special for me. They made a giant impact on my life when I heard them for the first time. For instance: Voodoo Chile really made me pick up the guitar to start making music myself. I hope the list will grow a little bit bigger in my years to follow...but not to big...because these songs are like best friends: you don't have a lot off them."

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.
