JayeL Audio Mixtape

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 4-21-19 feat. Tame Impala, Jade Bird, Kaytranada, SOAK, Middle Kids & more

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 […]

2018 Dance Electronic House JayeL Audio Lists remix Remix Friday

DJ Mix: Top Remixes of 2018

Though I wanted to finish this mix when I released my top 100 remixes of 2018 list, the first iteration was a bit overstuffed. The final edition still packed in 34 of my 100 favorite remixes of last year, but is much more digestable with a 62 minute runtime. Stream the DJ mix via Mixcloud […]

JayeL Audio Remix Friday

JAYELAUDIO FM + more on Spotify in 2019

The New Year is already in full swing with loads of great new music to kick of 2019! As always, I’m keeping track of everything I’m listening to on Spotify with a new batch of playlists like JAYELAUDIO FM and REMIX FRIDAY. In addition to those standards, I thought it would be appropriate to launch […]

2018 Wrap-Up: Top 100 Remixes of 2018

It may seem like a fool’s errand to countdown the top remixes of the year. The potential number of remixes to listen to in a given year is nearly infinite and there is not a chance that I’ve listened to them all. However, it is fun cataloging the reworkings I listened to most annually and […]

2018 Wrap-Up: Top Tracks of 2018

Unlike my top albums list, counting down 100 of my favorite songs from the past year was not quite as straightforward. Surprise releases from mega-acts like Beyonce & Jay-Z, Drake, Childish Gambino, and others seemed to happen every other week, while big names outside of hip-hop such as Father John Misty, Lykke Li, Lord Huron, […]

2018 Wrap-Up: Top Albums of 2018

I have typically been confident in the staying power of albums, until this year. Despite conversations to the contrary about this musical medium, I’ve had plenty of tough choices to make when compiling past yearly lists. That isn’t to say that this year’s list is lacking in quality music. I would just say this list […]

Indie JayeL Audio Mixtape

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 12-23-18 feat. Joe Hertler, Cut Copy, Toro y Moi, Little Dragon & more

Happy Holidays! I’ve got a slew of ‘end of the year list’ music coming your way, but before the lists arrive, it seemed appropriate to drop one more mixtape before 2018 comes to a close. There were heaps of tunes that just missed tracklists of other mixtapes throughout the year and this fall provided a […]
