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.

Django Gitano

Through the last decade Django de Vries became a fixture within the Amsterdam club scene under various aliases. 
The moniker Django Gitano represents the latest chapter in De Vries’s artistic forays. One which alludes to his own spin of house music and all the good stuff that catches his attention earned him slots at some of today's most prestigious festivals and parties.

232 Hidden Gems by Sam Azami

by Sam Azami

The playlist I’ve put together mainly consists of a mixture of deephouse funk. I always look for those songs that seem timeless to me. Songs that you can play anywhere, anytime and that still have the same power you heard the first time you played it. I’m quite a “digger” for records, so you can say that there are a lot of hidden gems in this one, played by artists that I admire very much.

218 Welcome to the Manners Lounge

by Manners.nl

Today’s true gent is a busy man: a demanding job, a vivid social life, a relationship or family, hobbies and a rigorous work-out regime. Therefore he wants to be able to get some proper relaxation. Sometimes he just wants to kick back, unbutton his suit, kick off his oxfords and recline with a beautiful glass of whiskey in one hand and a quality cigar in the other. At these moments, Manners.nl welcomes you to the Manners Lounge, a musical journey taking you through several styles and genres. We start with some loungy jazzy stuff and then take a trip through some soulful tunes. Let some surprising electro and worldly stuff seep into your soul before you move those feet to some genuine beats. After that it’s time to relax. Stretch, close your eyes and just mellow out. Kill the shuffle switch for this one.
