MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 6-20-15 ft The Weeknd, Penguin Prison, Dawes, Tuxedo & more

IMG_3692The weather is finally heating up (for real this time) and so are the quality summer releases. Electronic acts like Disclosure, Whilk & Misky and Flume have been teasing more than satiable singles, while Jamie xx unveiled an early contender for album of the year with In Colour. Surprises were also welcome as Beck came out of nowhere with his most infectious single in recent memory (“Dreams”) and Goldroom turned Fleet Foxes’ classic “Mykonos” into a dancefloor gem. Aside from familiar names, Aussie newcomer Jarryd James made an instant impression on genre-defying single “Give Me Something”, Jimi Charles Moody sounded like an industry vet on the pained “Other Man” and Yukon Blonde brought power chords and joyous harmonies on “I Wanna Be Your Man”.

Favorite of the month had to be The Weeknd’s Off the Wall-era MJ-inspired possible song of the summer “Can’t Feel My Face”. The Canadian singer’s music often includes drug-addled references, but the subject matter seems fresh in comparing that addiction to love. In any case, I think most people would like a bit of what The Weeknd and Max Martin had when they crafted such an excellent bit of nostalgia into a danceable hit.
