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.

The Medics

This Utrecht-based band from The Netherlands is your first aid kit in case of dullness, apathy and other signs of exhaustion. Since 2008 The Medics provide – only on prescription – a balanced dose keen-edged rock, influenced by the likes of The Strokes, Vampire Weekend and The Killers. Known side-effects are unexpected energy-boosts, an inexplicable joie de vivre and a uncontrolable urge to sing along. The Medics just released debut album Dance Into The Dark on [PIAS].

by The Medics

Ask five music-addicted guys to compile a mix tape and you'll get a shitload of music. Mostly recent tunes, but also some oldies that inspired us at home, in our rehearsal space and on the dancefloor.

219 Twelve Spelled Out Songs

by Waiting For Lenny

The first track on our EP is called B.E.A.T. After a long writing process the song really came together when we simply decided spell out the first word of the verse. From that moment on our little obsession with finding the best spelled out songs began. And so we didn’t really have to think long about a theme when you guys asked us to make a M.I.X.T.A.P.E. Enjoy!
