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.

Armada Music

Dutch record label Armada Music doesn’t really need an introduction. But to be sure you know where Armada comes from and where this diverse and steady growing record company is heading for in the future, here’s a few facts that deserve your attention.

Armada was founded back in 2003 by Armin van Buuren, Maykel Piron and David Lewis, of which the first 2 letters of their names form nothing less than ‘Armada’. The company celebrates its eighth anniversary in 2011 and has brought a range of quality releases over the past years, which resulted in the ‘Best Global Dance Label’ title three years in a row, as awarded by the International Dance Music Awards of 2009, 2010 and 2011. The Amsterdam-based label works with and manages some of the biggest names in dance music industry.

Armada also hosts successful events worldwide, therewith entering the areas of management and events. Its yearly events in Ibiza manage to attract thousands of party lovers to the white beaches, sunsets and of course: the best DJ’s Armada provides them.

Ultimately Managing Director and co-owner Maykel Piron puts it best: “It’s mainly important to be able to release high quality dance music. That basically means we should be able to release every genre of track. No matter if it’s trance or house; if we love it, we have the opportunity to release it.”

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!
