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.

Case Mayfield

Feel that heart string being tugged? Then Case Mayfield’s cunning plan has worked. Intelligent folk, sometimes fragile, sometimes experimental but always passionate. His lyrics are moving, and his vocals a perfect fit for the style he carries.
Not too fancy. That’s Case Mayfield’s music and his approach to his profession. Real emotions without much finery. Minimal means lead to maximum results. Guitar songs with subtile folk influences is what Mayfield does best. However Ryan Adams and Ray LaMontagne are never far away, you mainly hear the Amsterdam singer himself. His songs are filled with pain, grief, venom, anger and cynicism. Tracks like ‘Crooked Waits’, ‘Our Mom’ and ‘Alright Louise’, they hurt like a sharp knife tearing a nerve. However, this pain is more than welcome.
Mayfield knows how to get these feelings across from up a stage, as he has proven over the previous months. At first sight, he might look shy, phlegmatic man; after a single note all that counts is the man’s music. Mayfield makes no concessions, in writing, recording and performing.
In 2012, Case Mayfield will release his debut album ‘The Many Colored Beast’ alongside producer Ro Halfhide (Lucky Fonz III, Claw Boys Claw) and now and again will surprise by releasing new material without notice. Until the debut album comes out, he’s a live act not to be missed by any possible crowd.
