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.

Willem Baars (JFK Magazine)

Willem Baars has had a passion for music since he was 12. He made this passion his work as he was a popjournalist for De Telegraaf from his 17th, later became a popjournalist for Hitkrant/OOR, Muziek Expres, DUTCH, ELLE, Playboy.
Music still plays an important role in his life and as he says himself: 'I still want to hear and know everything in progressive music. Electronic music and dance have always my main thing. On this playlist I have tried to mix songs that have been important to me and that bring back good memories to me with songs that I think are great and should be heard by everyone."

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!
