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'.
'Dagschotel (dish of the day) is the most tasty, and always sold-out,
clubnight of Arnhem, Holland. Serving delicious disco, electropop,
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!'

Some titles say it all, this tape is literally the story of Vulnerable. Every song got some elements of inspiration.
Dutch author of one of the most hilarious books ever, Henk van Straten.
We are constantly on the move and different styles of music are a part of that of course. This tape is for someone that through feelings, memories and dreams, wants to be taken into the wondrous world of PUP.
We've come together to select tracks that directly influenced our band sound. It didn't take us long to agree on this list, we're - luckily - on the same page. We'll take you back to sweet soul, super jazz and groovin' boogaloo. Enjoy!
One should never try to understand a woman's brain, and this is why we won't over explain this tape. The only idea behind it is us loving all random things in life, things that simply cannot be categorized in just one theme or one genre. This tape is our vision of a day in a woman's life.
After losing his shame, guitar player Valentijn Bannier (Steye, Zuco 103, Giovanca) started the hottest band of this moment. Listen to this tape and you'll get to know the love of your life

This is the kind of playlist we'd have playing as we travel between shows across the land...
We've brought together some cutting-edge quality house from our favorite innovative artists on this Mixed-Tape.
