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.

199 Wub and his candyshop

by Wub

Always tough to make a choice in all the music. These are some candies I took from my candyshop: melodic house, more crazy electronica and ass-shaking techno. I love them all!

245 Festivalweide

by Bells of Youth

This mixtape is going to be our driving soundtrack for the festival season. We're hoping to play a lot of festivals this summer and there isn't a better way to get in the mood than good music! Listening to this mixtape we picture ourselves in the festival area surrounded by good tunes and dancing our asses off. We think it's important to support good music from your own country, so a couple of the bands on the mixtape are Dutch.

220 The Random List

by NSMBL

One should never try to understand a woman's brain, and this is why we won't over explain this tape. The only idea behind it is us loving all random things in life, things that simply cannot be categorized in just one theme or one genre. This tape is our vision of a day in a woman's life.

244 Embryonic Journey

by The Cosmic Carnival

From the Cosmic to the Carnival. These songs tell our story from the very beginning up until where we are right now. Deep grooves and addictive drums, with a bit of reggae here and there. Blistering solos, and some psychedelic flavours. And there's this thing we have with harmony singing. No ‘80s or ’90s songs on this one, mate... The good stuff's timeless. Enjoy this fine selection wherever you are, whenever you want. Peace!
