That shit is bananas
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.
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'.

house, indie, wave, hiphop, tropical bass and more eclectic
gems a la carte. In preparation for their 'DAGSSCHOTEL XL:
That shit is bananas.'- edition the Dagschotel chefs prepared
us a Mixed Tape which is, well, bananas!'
That shit is bananas
Big thoughts come in small songs and just because Kuijken is holding back, the music is full of tension. 'Nowhere or Tammensaari' is their latest album and the next step in a career that slowly but steadily unfolds. I am Oak makes albums to listen to, not just a collection of singles with some fillers, it's a listening experience. In shows it's the same thing. At that time there is also a big chance that the music takes you away, wherever your dreams want to take you. This is Thijs' selection of music to take you on a journey.
Spend the whole weekend on a rooftop partying with your friends...did we say it was sunny and we had a swimming pool (kind of)?
The clouds are clearing up, the sunlight is making it’s way through and the temperature is rising - time for some fresh songs!
This is an old-school collection of house music which I still listen to today to enjoy. Sometimes I even still play some of these songs because most of them, smash every club.
To celebrate our 4 year anniversary we have collected some of the best tracks of our We Are E-artists. Listen and enjoy!
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!
For the next one and a half hour we will take you on a trip into the house. Expect tracks ranging from groovy house to old school garage. Inspired by many different styles we made a selection of some of our all time favourites. Enjoy!
Twenty songs that got us where we are today; personal anthems, if you will.
Well, here's the tale of two youngsters chasing their dream in a far-away land.
