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.

90 Kraantje Playlist

by Kraantje Pappie

This is a compilation of tracks that I've been listening to lately. A couple of tracks are tracks that I really love and some others are in this list because I kinda studied them. By studying I mean; I was listening to the structures within a popsong. I wanted to figure out if there's a formula in it so I can use it in my own music projects. Enjoy.

157 The joy of melancholy

by De Meisjes

Susan Sontag once wrote: 'Depression is melancholy minus its charms.' Even sad songs must contain an element of joy: no matter how blue, by their very essence they'll remain a celebration of what it means to be alive.
