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.

alt-J

alt-J (∆)’s name takes a little explaining. Pronounced “alt-J”, the delta sign is created when you hold down the alt key on your computer keyboard and punch ‘J’ on a Mac computer. The symbol has a deeper meaning for the band, as guitarist/bassist Gwil Sainsbury notes, “in mathematical equations it’s used to show change,” and the band’s relatively new name came at a turning point in their lives.

They've just released their debut album "An Awesome Wave", a mix of folk, electronica & pop. Check out "An Awesome Wave" here.




PIAS NITES
They created this playlist to celebrate the release of their new album & to kick off the 2nd edition of PIAS NITES NL. After the successful first edition in Eindhoven, the second edition will take place at pop temple Paradiso in Amsterdam! The belgium band Great Mountain Fire will open the event, followed by Alt-J & the night will end with Ghostpoet. With hypnotising beats and poetic lyrics they will surely end the night with a bang!

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.

92 The Medics ain’t misbehavin’

by The Medics

Ask five music-addicted guys to compile a mix tape and you'll get a shitload of music. Mostly recent tunes, but also some oldies that inspired us at home, in our rehearsal space and on the dancefloor.

by @Bruut (22tracks)

@Bruut unites the new and old world of core. The perfect mix of hardcore (and metalcore) music with a little bit of crossover.
