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.

KOFFIE

The music of KOFFIE can be summarised as a mixture of Afrobeat, jazz and 1970s funk. Fela Kuti's full sound and wonderful grooves was the kick for these boys to dive into Afrobeat.

The seven KOFFIE musicians recorded their first album in cooperation with vocalist Nassan Silva Lopes. When it came to the songwriting, KOFFIE was not only inspired by Afrobeat but also by Nassan Silvan Lopes who brought in many traditional rhythms and melodies from his native Guinea-Bissau (West Africa). The album will be released on 8 March, 2013 by Dox Records.

First single and video Kyrie Ayé out now! KOFFIE release show on March, 11th @Canvas, Amsterdam. More info here.

123 One Shoe Only

by dEUS

Since you woke up immersed in that legendary feeling,everything behind you is shining and all is evening. A letter from the government informs you about a lost soundtrack of your life. You had no idea whatsoever, but that's fine.

77 Ollie’s Choice

by Olivier Teepe

A collection of tracks that (for instance) can guide me through a far away country in a rented vehicle driving on the left side of the road, where each track touches me deeply in one way or another and infuses me with energy, positive emotions and inspiration to continue the journey. It's not about the destination, but how you get there!
