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.

Blind American composer Louis 'Moondog' Hardin (1916–1999) has the reputation of being one of New York's most visible and eccentric street musicians. But besides his striking viking outfit and spear, he is a noted influential composer and poet who invented several musicalinstruments. His influence has spread wide and has gathered fans in all sorts of musical circles, from jazz legends Charlie Parker & Charles Mingus, rock 'n' roll legends John Lennon & Janis Joplin, minimalists Steve Reich & Philip Glass to electronic artists such as Mr. Scruff.

56 WTF did they do to my music?!

by MOONDOG

The tape draws from original Moondog recordings and also remixes/covers/samples used by other artists. The title means Moondog may not have approved of all of them.

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....
