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.

Indiestad

Indiestad is the brainchild of Amsterdam's Paradiso, and the venue's twice-yearly, hugely successful London Calling festival is part of the deal with an indoor and outdoor edition. Other locations include Bitterzoet, and a trio of churches that are both visually and acoustically stunning: De Duif, Vondelkerk and the Amstelkerk.

206 Indie Only

by Indiestad

It's true, Amsterdam is an amazing place for seeing bands all year round - but for a little longer than a week in May, it gets even better. So mark your calendars for 18 to 26 May 2013, because that's when Amsterdam turns into Indiestad ('Indie City') with a huge array of the best up-and-coming bands hitting stages across the city.

118 Originals

by Auxiliary tha Masterfader

Some songs have become so huge, we almost forget that they are actually a cover. Auxiliary Tha Masterfader made a big list of Originals who are less famous then the cover versions. This is a sample of that list. Listen to it and know who really made that hit song you love so so much.

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!

129 A bit different

by Microove

I made this podcast, to show that I have more to offer as a DJ then just a House or Techno set. I've always been a very diverse DJ and my preference of music has always been very eclectic. In this way I would like to show that to the public aswell. Hopefully you'll enjoy this slow BPM set!
