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...

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."

One of the first Tape-heads strikes again, rock with a reggae touch, rondos that don't like the rastaman and reggae with a twist!

218 Welcome to the Manners Lounge

by Manners.nl

Today’s true gent is a busy man: a demanding job, a vivid social life, a relationship or family, hobbies and a rigorous work-out regime. Therefore he wants to be able to get some proper relaxation. Sometimes he just wants to kick back, unbutton his suit, kick off his oxfords and recline with a beautiful glass of whiskey in one hand and a quality cigar in the other. At these moments, Manners.nl welcomes you to the Manners Lounge, a musical journey taking you through several styles and genres. We start with some loungy jazzy stuff and then take a trip through some soulful tunes. Let some surprising electro and worldly stuff seep into your soul before you move those feet to some genuine beats. After that it’s time to relax. Stretch, close your eyes and just mellow out. Kill the shuffle switch for this one.
