05 One more cup of coffee for the road

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'.

Back to the 90's! The Sultans formerly known as The Sultans of Ping were the masters of crazy catchy Pop-Punk music!
2th place this year, but Armin was the #1 DJ for 4 years and specially selected some tracks for all the mixed-tapes.nl visitors, 20 songs to keep you dancing all around the world!
This fall we are heading out on our biggest headline tour ever, so that means we're covering a lot of miles in between venues. This is our playlist in the van, some energetic driving songs, some mellow-after-gig-looking-at-the-starry-night chill out songs. Enjoy!
50% Blokgolf, 100% disco. Gear addict.
Obviously inspired by the beautiful weather, I would like to share some music with you that I bought on vinyl a while a go and spin a lot lately. Groovy music all the way from Africa and South America. So amazing to see how the music varies over there and what a groove it has!
A nine-headed ensemble inspired by music away from the mainstream!
The sun may not be shining full-force just yet, but Amsterdam Open Air is! They just released their line-up and this tape is just a selection of all the great artists playing at Amsterdam Open Air...
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....
A very special hairy tracklist. With songs like beards: all forms, shapes and sizes. #langlevedebaard
