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.

235 ADE Nostalgia

by All We Want Festival

Summer has gone, the festival season has finished, but luckily there is Amsterdam Dance Event to get us through the dark days of fall! We absolutely love this indoor, all-over-the-place, five-days-of-mayhem event and enjoyed every minute of it. This mixed-tape is a tribute to last week, a week that we're still recovering from but will be in our memories for a long time. Enjoy these songs, which will take you back from the anticipation before until the hangover and the memories.

188 Herrek’s Mix Tape

by Herrek

This mix tape contains music from artists that I admire. All of this music has inspired me in the last years while I was composing and recording my own music. I like music that creates a world without specifically pointing a direction or telling you a concrete story. It makes me forget time and just enjoying the things that I am doing whatever that may be on that specific moment. Other songs I like for just being so pure and telling a story in such a delicate and sensitive way that I can do nothing else than listen and agree or cry along with the music. Some of the songs are from artists who are personal friends of mine and which I respect and admire for who they are and the music they are making.
