2018 JayeL Audio Lists Mixtape

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 […]

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 […]

Summer finally came to a close in Michigan in the past week or so. This month’s mixtape album cover photo took place at an excellent place to put an exclamation point on summer 2018, Pictured Rocks. My second trip to the Upper Peninsula included a portrait ready 35 mile back-packing trip (shameless plug to The […]

MIXTAPES: 4th of July 2018 DAY & NITE

My favorite annual mixtapes have arrived: 4th of July 2018! I decided to switch things up this year because of the insane inventory of new, good music: 3 mixtapes. I’ve got my typical DAY mix that features indie, rock, folk, alt country, and other breezy music for your week/weekend on the beach. I’ve also compiled […]

DJ Mix: She Hikes, I DJ Vol. 2 (JayeL Audio)

My wife’s fledgling beginner’s backpacking company, High Five Tribe (www.thehighfivetribe.com/), is back at it again with a full slate of weekend trips in Northern Michigan. I made my time at home useful with another mix with a bit of funk, house, and disco to keep your listening as danceable as possible. Ducksauce, Robosonic, Cassius, Mokoa, […]
