    Back in action with a very, very delayed mixtape that rounds out a few late finds from 2015 and new joints from the past three months. Indie pop/folk tunes from The Lumineers, Moon Taxi and Modern Space kick off the set right before an upbeat section of electronic-inspired selections from the likes of Gryffin, AlunaGeorge and Matoma. The rest of the mix dabbles in indie rock (White Denim, Caveman), retro sounds (Lake Street Dive, Eli Paperboy Reed) and reflective cuts (Day Wave, Lola Marsh, Radical Face). Brooklyn synthpoppers Chairlift claim my favorite track of the

    REMIX: Janet Jackson – Alright (Kaytraflip)

    by • on Mar 11, 16 • in Dance, Electronic, remix • with No Comments

    At this point, I think producer Kaytranada and legend Janet Jackson need to craft an entire album together. My obsession with Kaytranda’s take on Ms. Jackson’s “If” is well known, but the Montreal-based beatsmith has also laced other Janet works like Busta’s “What’s It Gonna Be”. Now Kaytranada just released his “flip” of Rhythm Nation 1814 classic “Alright” into a bossa nova burner featuring a sample of Burnier E Cartier’s “Mirandolina”. Stream Kaytranada’s spirited take on Janet Jackson’s “Alright” below. BONUS: Mary J Blige – I Can Love You (Kaytraflip) kaytranada Tour Dates

    REMIX: AlunaGeorge – I’m In Control (The Magician Remix)

    by • on Mar 2, 16 • in Dance, Electronic, House, remix • with No Comments

    I’m sure The Magician hardly has a moment free to unleash remixes when he is dropping some of the best mixtapes (ahem, Magic Tapes) in the game. However, his latest is an addictive masterwork of house rhythms that makes it tough to choose: ‘remix or original’? Don’t get me wrong, Aluna Francis is still perfectly “In Control”, but The Magician’s new spin on the London duo’s latest single an authoritative force in its own right. Original Also, if you have not already listened to the Magician’s Magic Tape 59, I highly recommend it. Probably my

    Grad school and a wiped hard drive have made it tough to churn out my usual output of mixtapes early this year. However, I am still keeping up with new music as much as possible (and there is plenty to keep up with) over at Spotify. Head over to Spotify and follow my playlist 2016 JAYELAUDIO FM to hear everything I’ve loved so far this year. New music from Mayer Hawthorne, White Denim, Vaults, Anderson Paak and more.

    Gryffin – Heading Home ft Josef Salvat

    by • on Jan 29, 16 • in Dance, Electronic • with No Comments

    When Remix Friday favorite producers elevate their game from reworks to originals, I always root for their continued success. NYC-based Gryffin (aka Dan Griffin) is the latest remix producer to strike out on his own after dropping party-ready remix after remix for the likes of Tove Lo, Banks and one of my personal favorites, Years & Years. Australian singer Josef Salvat was another artist recently reimagined by Gryffin and collaborated with him on “Heading Home”. According to Gryffin, the song originally started as a demo that featured the first verse, which Dan molded with new

    Rationale – Something For Nothing

    by • on Jan 15, 16 • in Indie • with No Comments

    Its certainly fitting that London based singer/producer Rationale ended 2015 with my favorite track of the year and kicks off 2015 with my first post of the year. “Something For Nothing” is without a doubt worthy to lead the charge. Paced guitar riffs, slithering synth and Rationale’s own memorable and passioned baritone vocals make the soul/disco influenced track ready for many repeat plays ahead. Stream Rationale’s “Something For Nothing” below via Soundcloud (or Spotify) BONUS: The Mire

    While I was blasting this collection of remixes during my travels to Costa Rica, I just missed my self-imposed deadline of 12/24 to get this list done (I’m sure you understand). I am glad I waited though because the trip made me wonder how you all consume the tunes I send your way. I currently subscribe to Spotify and Apple Music (a story for another day), but still largely find music via Hype Machine, Soundcloud and my favorite websites. So if you have a moment, please fill out this brief survey so I can determine
