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!'
That shit is bananas
Here some music that I usually play at home, 80's, 90's and some unreleased stuff. Let the music do that talking and enjoy every beat of it..
A well flavoured stew of a small selection of my favourite ingredients. Some hard to chew, some easy to swallow. Bon appetit.
This fall we are heading out on our biggest headline tour ever, so that means we're covering a lot of miles in between venues. This is our playlist in the van, some energetic driving songs, some mellow-after-gig-looking-at-the-starry-night chill out songs. Enjoy!
Spank the baby and wobble your but cheeks!
Always tough to make a choice in all the music. These are some candies I took from my candyshop: melodic house, more crazy electronica and ass-shaking techno. I love them all!
Puna.nl is the most popular hip-hop platform in the Netherlands. More than four years ago three friends, Adai O'Bryan, Osei Vrede & Thomas Abera decided to not just share all the hiphop-news they found with each other, but to also put it on the web.
Self-made-electro-rock-chick... No guts, no glory... what else to say!
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.
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.
