MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 6-09-17 ft. Krrum, Gorillaz, LCD Soundsystem & more

There is a lot to be excited about with the change in seasons to warmer weather. I expect the sunshine, patio perching, and summer-ready new music. I did not expect brand new music from two of my all time favorites: LCD Soundsystem and Arcade Fire. Win Butler & co’s “Everything Now” is probably more ‘summery’ […]

February’s mixtape still features the returns of many JayeL Audio favorites, including the xx, Cold War Kids, Spoon, and the Shins. However, this collection is led by a number of newcomers that give hope for new bands to follow in 2017. National Parks charmed on my first experience with their sounds on melodic (and excellently […]

2017 is here and I managed to wrap up my annual lists for 2016 (barely). Though I am done counting down 2016, there was a ton of great new music released in Nov/Dec that should not be missed. Kid Cudi made a quality return on his latest album, complete with two solid Andre 3000 features. […]

2016 Wrap-Up: Top Remixes of 2016 MIXTAPE

2016 brought on a lot of changes in remix-land that were not necessarily great, depending on your stake in the game. Soundcloud Go’s launch meant labels, acts, and producers could finally monetize the millions of listens on the service. However, that meant a massive amount of producers had their accounts disabled for copyright reasons, mash-ups […]

2016 Wrap-Up: Top Remixes of 2016 #10-1

No surprise, but Kaytranada’s huge year with originals album 99.9%, also included quality remixes. The Montreal producer’s excellent takes on Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better” and Solange’s “Cranes In The Sky” were in heavy rotation, but Kay’s reinterpretation of a Janet Jackson track was once again my most played of the year. The Kaytranada flip of […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 11-14-16 ft Marshmello, Bad Suns, The xx, Run the Jewels & more

Back at it again with a mixtape stuffed with the latest in indie rock, pop, dance, electronic, and even a bit of hip-hop. I don’t have much of a preamble this week as I’m still nursing my wounds from national and Metro Detroit political failures. I’ll only say that I hope this time of frustration […]
