MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 11-14-16 ft Marshmello, Bad Suns, The xx, Run the Jewels & more

Back at it again with a mixtape stuffed with the latest in indie rock, pop, dance, electronic, and even a bit of hip-hop. I don’t have much of a preamble this week as I’m still nursing my wounds from national and Metro Detroit political failures. I’ll only say that I hope this time of frustration […]

The album already received acclaim for its expert melding of funk, soul, and dance music with strong features from Vic Mensa, AlunaGeorge, and more.

Basic Tape – So Good ft Danny Shah

Paris producers Basic Tape claimed my 3rd favorite remix of last year with their addictive take on Grades’ “King”. That cut has still made appearances on my weekend playlists throughout this year, but I was particularly happy to see Sav & Ben return with an original production last week. New single “So Good” balances paced […]

The Chainsmokers continue their 2016 hit parade with Phoebe Ryan in tow, while Remix Friday alum Louis the Child drops the aptly title original “Fire”. Edmonton’s Travis Bretzer […]

REMIX: Major Lazer – Cold Water (Ocular Remix)

If you were like me, the last few weeks of summer 2016 included plenty of repeat listens to The Chainsmokers’ “Closer” and Major Lazer’s “Cold Water”. I can’t say I’m sick of either track yet (though I admittedly do have a high tolerance for songs on repeat), but a fresh batch of “Cold Water” remixes […]
