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.

220 The Random List

by NSMBL

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.

169 Somewhere

by The Bony King of Nowhere

The third album, simply called "The Bony King of Nowhere", is out now. Each song is pure beauty, without big gestures, harmony or drums. It's a timeless folk record, rooted in the tradition of the great Leonard Cohen and the inevitable Bob Dylan.
