MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 10-17-16 ft The Weeknd, Bon Iver, Haley Bonar & more

With the coming of fall, my tastes tend to lean toward more folk, rock, and blues, but this month’s mixtape adds a bit of electronic as well. 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 […]

The ladies are finishing summer strong with a wide range sounds and kick off this month’s mixtape in an upbeat fashion.

Elsewhere, AlunaGeorge’s […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 6-18-16

This month’s mixtape has plenty of summertime sounds to go around. Leeds-based act Krrum once again kicks off the mix with upbeat rhythms of “Hard On You” before Glass Animals pull off an excellent feat of sounding like Yeasayer mixed with sounds of Timbaland’s past on “Life Itself”. Other sunshine ready tunes include SACHI’s swirling […]

REMIX: Janet Jackson – Alright (Kaytraflip)

At this point, I think producer Kaytranada and legend Janet Jackson need to craft an entire album together. My obsession with Kaytranda’s take on Ms. Jackson’s “If” is well known, but the Montreal-based beatsmith has also laced other Janet works like Busta’s “What’s It Gonna Be”. Now Kaytranada just released his “flip” of Rhythm Nation […]

REMIX: AlunaGeorge – I’m In Control (The Magician Remix)

I’m sure The Magician hardly has a moment free to unleash remixes when he is dropping some of the best mixtapes (ahem, Magic Tapes) in the game. However, his latest is an addictive masterwork of house rhythms that makes it tough to choose: ‘remix or original’? Don’t get me wrong, Aluna Francis is still perfectly […]

2015 Wrap-Up: Top 60 Remixes of 2015

While I was blasting this collection of remixes during my travels to Costa Rica, I just missed my self-imposed deadline of 12/24 to get this list done (I’m sure you understand). I am glad I waited though because the trip made me wonder how you all consume the tunes I send your way. I currently […]
