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.

99 Celebrating life, one song at a time

by Gram

Seduction, attitude, and melodies that lodge in your head until you go to bed... Music is life, so get off that couch! These songs definitely kept me going while we were making the second Gram album 'Play Me'.

157 The joy of melancholy

by De Meisjes

Susan Sontag once wrote: 'Depression is melancholy minus its charms.' Even sad songs must contain an element of joy: no matter how blue, by their very essence they'll remain a celebration of what it means to be alive.
