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.

90 Kraantje Playlist

by Kraantje Pappie

This is a compilation of tracks that I've been listening to lately. A couple of tracks are tracks that I really love and some others are in this list because I kinda studied them. By studying I mean; I was listening to the structures within a popsong. I wanted to figure out if there's a formula in it so I can use it in my own music projects. Enjoy.

135 C86 in 2012

by Rats On Rafts

It's very simple, a compilation of music we enjoy at this moment and have enjoyed for years, you can play it in one go and it fits together as a set and at the same time it doesn't at all. A nice C12 compilation.

95 Earcatchers

by Florian Wolff

These are some of the tracks I've come across in my life that immediatley struck me in a brainteasing way. Melodies that massaged my soul, sounds so soulful that they made my heart skip a beat. Goosebumps and all that. Timeless tunes from my childhood, teenage classics and new born beauties. Enjoy!
