    Heaps of new music will be coming your way in the next few weeks. In the meantime, catch up music I’ve been listening to since April. New music from Bon Iver, Tacocat, Yeasayer, JR JR, BANKS, and more! The Vampire Weekend record has been getting infinite spins in my household since it was officially released, hence the two features on this mixtape. “Sympathy” was the favorite on this month’s mix though with its varying tempo, driving flamenco guitar, and Ezra Koenig’s narration. Runner up goes to BANKS and Francis & the Lights catchy collaboration on

    It has been a very, very long time since a new “Nark” hip-hop mixtape has been released. 2015 as a matter of fact. Let’s face it, hip-hop hasn’t been spectacular for purists in recent years. However, I always tell people there are bright spots in the rap game if you look in the right places. For the uninitiated, my “Nark” mixtapes have been in production since circa 2000 and believe it or not, they were the only mixtapes I made for many years. My good man Gutter created the initial Nark (titled Nark Out Remix

    Hints of spring have arrived in Michigan and a batch of mostly sunny new music from the likes of Mark Ronson + Lykke Li, Nick Murphy, Local Natives, and Mac DeMarco. Newcomers Jaguar Dreams (“Just Life”), SOAK (“Deja Vu”), and Georgia (“About Work The Dancefloor”) anchor a radiant synth-filled mid-section of the mix. Aside from the singles mentioned above, Jade Bird (“Ruins”) and Anderson .Paak’s (“Come Home” feat. Andre 3000) selections on the mixtape are only the tip of the iceberg from their respective albums, Jade Bird and Ventura. This month’s favorite was a toss

    I haven’t had enough couch time as I’d like in early 2019 to compile a full mixtape until now. All was not silent though as I have been frequently loading Spotify playlists, including JAYELAUDIO FM (indie, pop, etc.), REMIX FRIDAY, JAM CIRCUS (dance, house, electronic), and BEAT TAPE (hip-hop/rap) on a weekly basis. I eventually cooked up a DJ Mix of my top remixes of 2018 in early January. as well For the latest music I’m listening to, follow along at Spotify. In any case, this mixtape covers 35 of the songs I have listened

    Though I wanted to finish this mix when I released my top 100 remixes of 2018 list, the first iteration was a bit overstuffed. The final edition still packed in 34 of my 100 favorite remixes of last year, but is much more digestable with a 62 minute runtime.

    JAYELAUDIO FM + more on Spotify in 2019

    The New Year is already in full swing with loads of great new music to kick of 2019! As always, I’m keeping track of everything I’m listening to on Spotify with a new batch of playlists like JAYELAUDIO FM and REMIX FRIDAY. In addition to those standards, I thought it would be appropriate to launch two new on-going playlists for hip-hop, BEAT TAPE, and dance music, JAM CIRCUS. Of course, JAYELAUDIO FM often captures favorites in hip-hop and dance music, but these new playlists will catalog the best in each genre throughout the year. More

    It may seem like a fool’s errand to countdown the top remixes of the year. The potential number of remixes to listen to in a given year is nearly infinite and there is not a chance that I’ve listened to them all. However, it is fun cataloging the reworkings I listened to most annually and usually leads to me finding a slew of great productions I missed earlier in the year. Below is a rundown of the top 5 and a Spotify link to stream most of the top 100. Enjoy and Happy New Year!
