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.

I'm Elza Jo, I was born in Amsterdam and still live and work here. I'm a photographer and I work with other media as well. I love music, my sister doesn't, even less when it's live.

191 The Guilty Pleasure List

by Elza Jo

This tape is called "The Guilty Pleasure" list because I love this music to work out to or to clean my house with.

225 HAARBAARBAAR LOVES NACHTDIGITAL

by HAARBAARBAAR

For 3 years now, I’ve been finding my way to Nachtdigital festival in Olganitz, Germany. “A playground for grown-ups” is what a lot of visitors call it. And they are right… A playground with quality (and often a bit strange) house music.

Just a few of my favorite songs. I always use this playlist whilst walking from home to the station. The people seem a lot more friendly and happy when I’m hearing these tunes.

From classic drummachines to the crystal clear mixing techniques in Sade... Naturally there's also some tunes to move your feet to while u dream of sunny festivals, dusty feet instead of muddy boots....

70 Where I Came From

by Isis

"It all started in my parents house where they used to play a broad blend of everything, slowly evolving towards a more electronic sound."
