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.

211 Music for Photographers

by I Shot The Band

We always love to hear some music with our photography and vice versa. Photography and its intention to capture important moments and people in our lives are quite similar to composing songs. In a song the emotion of the one making the music is traveling to the listener. Traced, diffused or with empathy.

116 Driving Home At Dawn

by Tim Beumers

When the sun sets after a long night and the world is still cold and gray, you need music. Music will guide you home. Music will keep you awake while the final miles disappear under your wheels. From start to finish, were your bed awaits.

232 Hidden Gems by Sam Azami

by Sam Azami

The playlist I’ve put together mainly consists of a mixture of deephouse funk. I always look for those songs that seem timeless to me. Songs that you can play anywhere, anytime and that still have the same power you heard the first time you played it. I’m quite a “digger” for records, so you can say that there are a lot of hidden gems in this one, played by artists that I admire very much.

215 Chillin’ out, maxin’ and relaxin’ all cool!

by I Am Oak

Big thoughts come in small songs and just because Kuijken is holding back, the music is full of tension. 'Nowhere or Tammensaari' is their latest album and the next step in a career that slowly but steadily unfolds. I am Oak makes albums to listen to, not just a collection of singles with some fillers, it's a listening experience. In shows it's the same thing. At that time there is also a big chance that the music takes you away, wherever your dreams want to take you. This is Thijs' selection of music to take you on a journey.
