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.

Pop Up Animal Kids

True music with honest intend for the love of the ritual.
Three, four or more souls merging for a moment in time, allowing attentive beholders to synchronize with them. The raw beauty of humans getting together who personally surrender to the animal kid within. It’s ok. They’ll be back. Just a brief trip to the savage and wild pretty lands of distant instants.
How will Pop Up Animal Kids as a band be able to pull such a thing off? That’s a very good question and thanks for asking. There is off course a wild combination of instincts, tricks, talents and hard labour needed in order to make such a thing possible. But the real key to the Pop Up chemistry is that the members musically grew up together from day one and they’ve been growing up for over ten years now. Although they will never grow up in social terms of the word, they are now more ready than ever to share their learnings, feelings and accessible one-of-a-kindness with the rest of the world.
It’s all there you know, in songs, in words, photographs and drawings. It’s blues, naturally, and grooves, rhythms, or voodoo drums, whatever you want to call it. Songs for sure, but moments first...

211 Music for Photographers

by I Shot The Band

We always love to hear some music with our photography and vice versa. Photography and its intention to capture important moments and people in our lives are quite similar to composing songs. In a song the emotion of the one making the music is traveling to the listener. Traced, diffused or with empathy.
