    Remix Friday: Cut Copy Edition (DJ Mix)

    I’ve been a fan of Cut Copy for more than 11 years at this point. Their synth-pop/dance punk/electronic sound never feels dated and every new track released by the Aussies is a must-listen. Though I have heavily praised the band’s original music, their remixes of other artists are not to be missed either. Cut Copy has remixed everyone from CSS and the Rapture to Jagwar Ma at this point (Kaiser Chiefs and Maroon 5 as well, but not included on this mix), and have been remixed by JayeL Audio favorites like Calvin Harris, Chromeo, and

    I think it is safe to say spring is finally here to stay in Michigan in what was most likely the longest winter in history. I’d say the music on this latest mix blooms with energy to match the warmer season. Gone are many of the melancholic tunes that were welcome in the cooler months. Instead, these selections have been upgraded with sounds ready for the beach, backyard barbecue, and walks in the neighborhood. The mix kicks off with danceable pop/electronic singles from Duke Dumont, Janelle Monae, and DJ Koze, as well as hip-hop’s hottest

    There is a lot of new music to love already in 2018 and on top of a few gems that were late finds from 2017, that equates to a 37 song mixtape. This month I tried to balance danceable tracks (The Magician, Justin Timberlake, Riton) with a slew of new indie rock (Django Django, Car Seat Headrest), folk (First Aid Kit, Mt. Joy, Lucius), and pop (CHVRCHES, Sure Sure). I’m not sure if Sylvan Esso’s addictive new song “PARAD(wm)E” means a new album is on the way, but I’ll take new music from them anytime

    2017 Wrap-Up: Top Live Shows of 2017

    Completing graduate school in May 2017 was exciting for many reasons, but an increase in time away from the home office was one of the top. That additional freedom allowed me to get out and see more live music than I’ve witnessed in at least 4 years. Below is a list of my favorite live shows of 2017. 1. LCD Soundsystem-Masonic Temple-11/3/17 The hype hangover from seeing LCD at Wayhome in 2016 could have been enough to create unrealistic expectations for James Murphy & co.’s return to Detroit. Instead, they blew me away with a

    2017 Wrap-Up: Top 100 Remixes of 2017

    by • on Jan 2, 18 • in 2017, Dance, Electronic, Lists, remix, Remix Friday • with No Comments

    2017 would not be complete without a recap of the best remixes of the year (at least for my ears). Remixes seemed to be everywhere this year as Spotify’s grip on the streaming music game expanding and reworkings being more important to new music promotion. New interpretations of some of pop’s biggest acts weren’t much of a surprise (see Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes), but indie remixes seemed to be more prevalent (see Local Natives, Minke, Portugal. the Man, Maggie Rogers). Ed Sheeran even landed 2 spots with “Shape of You” remixes

    2017 Wrap-Up: Top Tracks of 2017

    by • on Dec 30, 17 • in 2017, Indie, JayeL Audio, Lists, Mixtape • with No Comments

    This year’s top tracks list had a problem…too many good choices. Hence the 100 song list you see before you. As usual, the rules are that songs counted came out in 2017 (or late 2016, see: Michigan Rattlers, RTJ, and Kid Cudi) and are my most played and adored of the year. 100 songs also means that as much as I would like to write about each song, I’ll spare you the time and mention a few notes on my top 5. 1. Kendrick Lamar – HUMBLE.: I was already obsessed with this song’s addictive
