Stekker, Delivers the energy you need this fall
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.

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'.
Vers Vermaak: the Utrecht based organization behind the legendary Stekker parties have come up with a brand new concept. Stekker Oktoberfest.

This tape consists of some German classics and records by artists who perform at Stekker Oktoberfest. Gute Laune!
