2017 Wrap-Up: Top 100 Remixes of 2017

2017 would not be complete without a recap of the best remixes of the year (at least for my ears). Remixes seemed to be everywhere this year as Spotify’s grip on the streaming music game expanding and reworkings being more important to new music promotion. New interpretations of some of pop’s biggest acts weren’t much […]

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 […]

MIXTAPES: 4th of July 2017 DAY & NITE

Back again with over 60 songs to keep you moving (or relaxing, whatever you prefer) on this hopefully long holiday weekend. Someone asked me recently “why ‘DAY’ and ‘NITE’”? Well, if you are on the beach this weekend, you really should only be keeping time through the system of daylight = day and night = […]

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’ […]
