REMIX: Disclosure – Holding On ft Gregory Porter (Armand Van Helden Remix)

Remix Friday already dropped, but I couldn’t let Armand Van Helden‘s take on “Holding On” wait until next week. All respect to the brothers Lawrence, but the legendary dance producer intensified the build up for a worthy remix of their latest single in ways that challenge the original’s surpemacy. Just in time for your weekend […]

Chromeo + La Roux +Ducksauce = Hot Mess Remix

Chromeo’s synth/electro pop jam “Hot Mess” was already great and then La Roux hopped on it and made it extra great.

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 9-2-09

A month after the last edition, I’m hoping this will be my typical output. This usually isn’t Dance/Electro-fest, but it seems a fitting way to close out the summer. Fiery collaborations from Tiesto w/Tegan & Sara (“Feel It In My Bones), David Guetta w/KiD CuDi (“Memories”), Ducksauce aka DJ A-Trak and Armand Van Helden (“Anyway”) […]
