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 […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 9-28-18 feat. Jade Bird, Maggie Rogers, The Knocks, k-os & more

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 […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 5-14-18 feat. Childish Gambino, UMO, Shakey Graves, DJ Koze & more

I think it is safe to say spring is finally here to stay in Michigan in what was most likely the longest winter in history. I’d say the music on this latest mix blooms with energy to match the warmer season. Gone are many of the melancholic tunes that were welcome in the cooler months. […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 2-19-18 feat. N.E.R.D., Sylvan Esso, Jay Som, The Magician, Sure Sure & more

There is a lot of new music to love already in 2018 and on top of a few gems that were late finds from 2017, that equates to a 37 song mixtape. This month I tried to balance danceable tracks (The Magician, Justin Timberlake, Riton) with a slew of new indie rock (Django Django, Car […]

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 […]
