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.

Playlist


Wub

Wub is... well in Dutch we would say: a little Manus of everything. With Onderstroom, the pride of Haarlem's techno scene, his residency at Studio 80 and the residency at the new Amsterdam techno-event called Contraversion, he really is staying true to the Manus. He has a pretty big summer program coming up, he is: in his nopjes, and so is his playlist. Enjoy the sweet goods and wiggle through the room!

199 Wub and his candyshop

by Wub

Always tough to make a choice in all the music. These are some candies I took from my candyshop: melodic house, more crazy electronica and ass-shaking techno. I love them all!

230 Songs of desperation

by Bart van der Lee

This is a very diverse selection of songs that are both lyrically and musically very appealing and inspiring to me. These songs captivate me thematically by the loneliness, intensity or eloquence with which it infallibly and relentlessly is dragged into your ears. At the same time, they are intriguing by the structure and the musical decoration. Each one awakes in me a euphoric feeling of a desolate and lonely existence, by realizing that this is the way life is, these songs offer me a sense of refuge and relief.
