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.

Amsterdam Open Air

After the massively successful premiere of Amsterdam Open Air in 2011, it was clear that a follow up was inevitable. The sequel in recreational area Gaasperpark will mark the beginning of the outdoor season in Amsterdam on Whitsun weekend, Saturday May 26th and Sunday May 27th. This edition will be expanded: what began as a one day festival has developed into a full weekender, with space to stay the night at the nearby camping site!

Amsterdam Open Air The Weekender is an initiative of AIR and MTV, along with a number of leading organizations in Amsterdam. This program will be, like last year, an authentic cross section of the metropolitan nightlife.

133 25 years EKKO Utrecht

by EKKO

Last year, we've celebrated our 25th anniversary as a venue for upcoming, talented music. With this mixtape, we'll let you hear some of the music groups and acts that played the EKKO in those 25 years. Some are intimate, others are loud and there's some electronic music on it, as well. Please enjoy, and hopefully we're able to make a new one in 25 years from now!
