01 My first playlist
by DJ Atomica
RobotRock, Dog Day Disco, Paradiso
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.
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'.
RobotRock, Dog Day Disco, Paradiso.....electro, indie & pop!
After losing his shame, guitar player Valentijn Bannier (Steye, Zuco 103, Giovanca) started the hottest band of this moment. Listen to this tape and you'll get to know the love of your life
To get a little insight into our world of music and what inspires us, we’ve put together a playlist with some of our all-time favourite songs. We hope you like it!
From classic drummachines to the crystal clear mixing techniques in Sade... Naturally there's also some tunes to move your feet to while u dream of sunny festivals, dusty feet instead of muddy boots....
"Each song on this playlist is special for me. They made a giant impact on my life when I heard them for the first time. For instance: Voodoo Chile really made me pick up the guitar to start making music myself. I hope the list will grow a little bit bigger in my years to follow...but not to big...because these songs are like best friends: you don't have a lot off them."
Something for your mind, body and soul. It can lift you up or set you down. Great artists, spectacular songs.
Most of these artists I've been listening to for a while. These are some of my favorites that I've been playing a lot recently.
These are the tracks that made me smile, feel groovy and feel good in the last couple of months.. Most of this music I heard, were when travelling in the tour bus with New Cool Collective, every band member using Spotify in turns .. Hail Technology!
Where creatives and like-minded meet each other for a drink or a dance... in the living-room of clubbing Amsterdam! The Night tape of Bitterzoet.
