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.

135 C86 in 2012

by Rats On Rafts

It's very simple, a compilation of music we enjoy at this moment and have enjoyed for years, you can play it in one go and it fits together as a set and at the same time it doesn't at all. A nice C12 compilation.

230 Songs of desperation

by Bart van der Lee

This is a very diverse selection of songs that are both lyrically and musically very appealing and inspiring to me. These songs captivate me thematically by the loneliness, intensity or eloquence with which it infallibly and relentlessly is dragged into your ears. At the same time, they are intriguing by the structure and the musical decoration. Each one awakes in me a euphoric feeling of a desolate and lonely existence, by realizing that this is the way life is, these songs offer me a sense of refuge and relief.
