Dance Electronic JayeL Audio Mixtape remix Remix Friday

Remix Friday: Cut Copy Edition (DJ Mix)

I’ve been a fan of Cut Copy for more than 11 years at this point. Their synth-pop/dance punk/electronic sound never feels dated and every new track released by the Aussies is a must-listen. Though I have heavily praised the band’s original music, their remixes of other artists are not to be missed either. Cut Copy […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 5-14-18 feat. Childish Gambino, UMO, Shakey Graves, DJ Koze & more

I think it is safe to say spring is finally here to stay in Michigan in what was most likely the longest winter in history. I’d say the music on this latest mix blooms with energy to match the warmer season. Gone are many of the melancholic tunes that were welcome in the cooler months. […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 2-19-18 feat. N.E.R.D., Sylvan Esso, Jay Som, The Magician, Sure Sure & more

There is a lot of new music to love already in 2018 and on top of a few gems that were late finds from 2017, that equates to a 37 song mixtape. This month I tried to balance danceable tracks (The Magician, Justin Timberlake, Riton) with a slew of new indie rock (Django Django, Car […]

2017 Indie JayeL Audio Lists Mixtape

2017 Wrap-Up: Top Tracks of 2017

This year’s top tracks list had a problem…too many good choices. Hence the 100 song list you see before you. As usual, the rules are that songs counted came out in 2017 (or late 2016, see: Michigan Rattlers, RTJ, and Kid Cudi) and are my most played and adored of the year. 100 songs also […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 11-26-17 feat. Sure Sure, Wild Cub, Miguel, N.E.R.D. & more

How do you explain a mixtape that was supposed to come out one month ago? Well, you can offer up excuses related to work, a conference in the Windy City, and a sunny Florida vacation, but I wouldn’t expect much sympathy from that explanation. Instead, I’ll explain that said mixtape was actually shaping up into […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 9-14-17 feat. ODESZA, Canaro, Sure Sure, St. Vincent & more

This mixtape didn’t get as organized as fast as I wanted, but here are another 32 songs to keep you busy this fall. Triumphant returns from ODESZA, St. Vincent, and Wolf Parade made for tough choices as this month’s mixtape opener. In the end, LCD Soundsystem’s most danceable effort from American Dream, “tonite”¬†could not be […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 8-29-17 feat. HAIM, Canaro, RAC, David Myles & more

A lot has happened in the music world since 4th of July and I’ll admit, I’ve been hoarding a lot of music since that time. Arcade Fire put out a danceable new album with a side of social commentary, RAC stayed consistent with a solid sophomore album + an excellent remix (“Ordinary Madness”), and The […]
