05 One more cup of coffee for the road
Used to be a VJ.
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'.

let's forget about the time.. let's relax and ease our minds.. we deserve to just feel fine.. oh yeah
Beach, sun, sea, drinks...and original fresh music...enjoy!
We always love to hear some music with our photography and vice versa. Photography and its intention to capture important moments and people in our lives are quite similar to composing songs. In a song the emotion of the one making the music is traveling to the listener. Traced, diffused or with empathy.
One-man-super-band blends trashy guitars, groovy basslines, cheesy organs and heavy electro beats!
The sound of a positive generation, the sound of things to come...
Here some favourites of 2011 which we discovered or rediscovered in our first year listening to our own radio station.
We start this edition of ADE with some favorite personal tunes of the Founder of the Amsterdam Dance Event...are you ready? We are!
A soundtrack for those nice evenings when your just chilling on your couch with a cup of tea under a nice warm blanket.
Here are some tracks that inspire me in what I do, did and will do. Please enjoy the grooves of Nicolas Jaar, the beauty of techno in Dockyard by Paul Kalkbrenner, and lose yourself in The Passing of Time by my absolute favourite: The Orb.
