    Fall is here in Michigan and along with it comes a slew of new music from JayeL Audio favorites, as well as up and coming acts. The always dance-ready Friendly Fires (“Can’t Wait Forever”) are back with their first album in 8 years, Peter Bjorn and John show they still have a knack for earworm hooks on “Rusty Nail”, and Jack Penate (“Murder”) made his first JayeL Audio mixtape appearance in 10 years. New finds Lola Marsh made their best first impression on “Only For A Moment”, while the Hails (“Sugar”) and MANX (“Shell”) crafted

    Perhaps I caught the vibe of my 4th of July 2019 DAY mixes a bit too hard. It appears that those chill sounds soundtracked the rest of my summer as well. This end of the summer mixtape hits similar notes with hazy, laid back melodies that pair very well with a cloudy IPA, hard seltzer, margarita, or other beverage of choice near a sunset and/or body of water. I don’t mind saying that tracks 15-24 might be one of my favorite mixtape stretches of all time with folk, rock, and indie tunes that sounds like

    MIXTAPES: 4th of July 2019 DAY & NITE

    by • on Jul 3, 19 • in JayeL Audio, Mixtape • with No Comments

    My favorite mixtapes of the year have arrived: 4th of July mixtapes. Three sets ready for the holiday weekend, DAY (indie), DAY (dance edition), and NITE (dance and house music). The more traditional DAY mix hovers between indie rock, folk, reggae, pop, and alt country. There are a slew of sun-ready current and future hits from JayeL Audio stalwarts like Local Natives, Vampire Weekend, The Black Keys, Sure Sure, and Frankie Cosmos. Current favorite: Folk stomper “Don’t Wanna Be Without Ya” by Penny and Sparrow. I cooked up a “dance edition” of the DAY mix

    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
