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...

219 Twelve Spelled Out Songs

by Waiting For Lenny

The first track on our EP is called B.E.A.T. After a long writing process the song really came together when we simply decided spell out the first word of the verse. From that moment on our little obsession with finding the best spelled out songs began. And so we didn’t really have to think long about a theme when you guys asked us to make a M.I.X.T.A.P.E. Enjoy!

126 Friendship

by Claire & Sheila Hill

These tunes are a mix of songs we both love. They bring back good memories. Gigs at festivals or clubs where the crowd lifts you up, party's abroad, but also us having fun and sing along while driving the car on to a next gig. Enjoy
