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.

144 Spring is here

by Yorick van Norden

Yorick (frontman of The Hype) was so flattered by the great reception his first mixtape received, that he was challenged to create a follow-up, this time trying to make the perfect soundtrack to accompany the first rays of spring.

95 Earcatchers

by Florian Wolff

These are some of the tracks I've come across in my life that immediatley struck me in a brainteasing way. Melodies that massaged my soul, sounds so soulful that they made my heart skip a beat. Goosebumps and all that. Timeless tunes from my childhood, teenage classics and new born beauties. Enjoy!

198 Selected

by Woodkid

I could have given you a playlist that was referencing exactly to things that equal to my album as Woodkid. But the truth is, that's not the music I listen to. The music I listen to everyday is much more mainstream than that.
