Dance Indie Indie Pop JayeL Audio Mixtape

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 3-7-14 ft Little Dragon, Chromeo, Galactic & more

JayeL Audio 3-7-14 from jayelaudio on 8tracks Radio. I don’t know about you, but this month was essentially music overload for me. New albums from St. Vincent (artful and excellent), Pharrell (enjoyable and breezy) and Kid CuDi (awful, I guess I should be surprised anymore), plus fresh, new discoveries from Cathedrals, Plastic Plates and Mr […]

2013 Wrap-Up: Top Albums of 2013 #11-20

So many albums, so little time… #11 Local Natives-Hummingbird (Spotify) The departure of a band member can crush some acts, but Local Natives persevered with the help of The National’s Aaron Dessner. Dessner’s production helped the Cali crew in making their harmonies sound even lusher with grander instrumentation and darker tones. “Wooly Mammoth” echoed the […]

2013 Wrap-Up: Top Tracks #20-11

The National, Laneway Fest, September 2013 More great jams from 2013… #20 Rhye-Open (Amazon) The comparison to Sade was inevitable after one listen to Rhye’s “Open”. However, I don’t think Sade ever made a drug-induced love anthem sound so eloquent. Also, Sade is female, so….. #19 The National-Sea of Love (Amazon) Matt Berninger, lead singer […]

Daft Punk – Lose Yourself To Dance ft Pharrell (radio edit)

Is 5 minutes and 54 seconds too much disco bliss for you? Daft Punk apparently thought radio listeners couldn’t handle that much, so here comes the radio edit. Stream the 4 minute version of one of my favorite tracks of 2013, “Lose Yourself To Dance”. #PHARRELL2013 via PMA

Hip-Hop Mixtape Nark

New Mixtape: Nark Lights

You could say I’m foolish for putting this hip-hop/rap mixtape out before Labor Day weekend. Considering Missy Elliot is dropping two new songs this weekend and there are certain to be a few other surprises, I’m probably going to wish those tracks were on this mix. Oh well, I had a hard enough time narrowing […]


MP3: Mac Miller & Pharrell-Glow

Mac Miller & Pharrell’s latest collabo from the terribly titled Pink Slime EP. “Glow” features the unexpected duo rhyming bravado over a stuttering high hat and sample-filled track I’m certain will be stuck in my head for the rest of the day. Mac Miller & Pharell-Glow (.mp3 via Mac Miller Twitter)

2009 Wrap-Up: Top Hip-Hop Albums #5 to #1

You’ll notice Kid Cudi and K’Naan made both lists, but couldn’t land the top spot here because Raekwon stuck to his hip-hop roots. As an overall album, I like Cudi’s better, but Raekwon owned this list from a hip-hop perspective. 5. Drake – So Far Gone Mixtape Arguably one of the most successful mixtapes in […]
