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.

99 Celebrating life, one song at a time

by Gram

Seduction, attitude, and melodies that lodge in your head until you go to bed... Music is life, so get off that couch! These songs definitely kept me going while we were making the second Gram album 'Play Me'.

142 Life Changing Songs

by ED

"Each song on this playlist is special for me. They made a giant impact on my life when I heard them for the first time. For instance: Voodoo Chile really made me pick up the guitar to start making music myself. I hope the list will grow a little bit bigger in my years to follow...but not to big...because these songs are like best friends: you don't have a lot off them."

169 Somewhere

by The Bony King of Nowhere

The third album, simply called "The Bony King of Nowhere", is out now. Each song is pure beauty, without big gestures, harmony or drums. It's a timeless folk record, rooted in the tradition of the great Leonard Cohen and the inevitable Bob Dylan.

235 ADE Nostalgia

by All We Want Festival

Summer has gone, the festival season has finished, but luckily there is Amsterdam Dance Event to get us through the dark days of fall! We absolutely love this indoor, all-over-the-place, five-days-of-mayhem event and enjoyed every minute of it. This mixed-tape is a tribute to last week, a week that we're still recovering from but will be in our memories for a long time. Enjoy these songs, which will take you back from the anticipation before until the hangover and the memories.
