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.

Specker

The duo Specker is made up by Max Coppens en Kalle Liefferink. Both grew up in Amersfoort, but they didn’t meet until they were in their young-adulthood. And poetically as it may seem, they were brought together by their love for the same music, the same record to be exact.
Over the last years Specker has played all over Holland and their schedule for the coming summer includes prominent Dutch festivals such as Awakenings and Welcome to the Future. And with increasing support of world-renowned DJ’s and labels, the Specker sound has taken off and is starting to take over the world. One beat at a time.
