    Summer finally came to a close in Michigan in the past week or so. This month’s mixtape album cover photo took place at an excellent place to put an exclamation point on summer 2018, Pictured Rocks. My second trip to the Upper Peninsula included a portrait ready 35 mile back-packing trip (shameless plug to The High Five Tribe) and plenty of opportunity to recap all the songs I’ve enjoyed for the last half of summer. This month’s mixtape once again spans multiple genres, including folk rock, dance pop, hazy indie rock, and a bit of

    MIXTAPES: 4th of July 2018 DAY & NITE

    by • on Jun 29, 18 • in JayeL Audio, Mixtape • with No Comments

    My favorite annual mixtapes have arrived: 4th of July 2018! I decided to switch things up this year because of the insane inventory of new, good music: 3 mixtapes. I’ve got my typical DAY mix that features indie, rock, folk, alt country, and other breezy music for your week/weekend on the beach. I’ve also compiled my usual NITE mix with dance-floor ready remixes, house, hip-hop, and other electronic gems. Since the past few years of DAY mixes have been trending to including more electronic and dance music, I crafted a DANCE Edition of DAY with

    DJ Mix: She Hikes, I DJ Vol. 2 (JayeL Audio)

    My wife’s fledgling beginner’s backpacking company, High Five Tribe (www.thehighfivetribe.com/), is back at it again with a full slate of weekend trips in Northern Michigan. I made my time at home useful with another mix with a bit of funk, house, and disco to keep your listening as danceable as possible. Ducksauce, Robosonic, Cassius, Mokoa, Body Music, Mood J, and more make appearances. Special thanks to Slava, Jean Tonique, The Magician, Silk City, Aqua, Bosq, and Aquarium for surely influencing this set. Equipment was Traktor Kontrol 2 and Traktor Pro software.

    Remix Friday: Cut Copy Edition (DJ Mix)

    by • on Jun 9, 18 • in Dance, Electronic, JayeL Audio, Mixtape, remix, Remix Friday • with No Comments

    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
