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.

Go Back To The Zoo

Being on-the-road to a gig feels like one of those familiar high school trips: excited for what will happen, not knowing what to expect, thrilled to the bone! When we choose the music in the van, we feel like rock 'n roll hits: raw and exciting. Lust for life!

174 So that was 2012

by Basserk Records

So that's 2012 all done and dusted, what a blast. To try and put a marker in time we've created a mixed tape containing a selection of our favorite tunes of 2012. 2012 has been a good year for Basserk and our artists, our releases have caused quite a stir this year. We still managed to find time to participate in many brain cell killing activities, and during that process these tunes managed to stick to us.
