Basic Tape – So Good ft Danny Shah

Paris producers Basic Tape claimed my 3rd favorite remix of last year with their addictive take on Grades’ “King”. That cut has still made appearances on my weekend playlists throughout this year, but I was particularly happy to see Sav & Ben return with an original production last week. New single “So Good” balances paced […]

REMIX: Major Lazer – Cold Water (Ocular Remix)

If you were like me, the last few weeks of summer 2016 included plenty of repeat listens to The Chainsmokers’ “Closer” and Major Lazer’s “Cold Water”. I can’t say I’m sick of either track yet (though I admittedly do have a high tolerance for songs on repeat), but a fresh batch of “Cold Water” remixes […]

MIXTAPE: JayeL Audio 6-18-16

This month’s mixtape has plenty of summertime sounds to go around. Leeds-based act Krrum once again kicks off the mix with upbeat rhythms of “Hard On You” before Glass Animals pull off an excellent feat of sounding like Yeasayer mixed with sounds of Timbaland’s past on “Life Itself”. Other sunshine ready tunes include SACHI’s swirling […]

REMIX: Janet Jackson – Alright (Kaytraflip)

At this point, I think producer Kaytranada and legend Janet Jackson need to craft an entire album together. My obsession with Kaytranda’s take on Ms. Jackson’s “If” is well known, but the Montreal-based beatsmith has also laced other Janet works like Busta’s “What’s It Gonna Be”. Now Kaytranada just released his “flip” of Rhythm Nation […]

REMIX: AlunaGeorge – I’m In Control (The Magician Remix)

I’m sure The Magician hardly has a moment free to unleash remixes when he is dropping some of the best mixtapes (ahem, Magic Tapes) in the game. However, his latest is an addictive masterwork of house rhythms that makes it tough to choose: ‘remix or original’? Don’t get me wrong, Aluna Francis is still perfectly […]

2016 JAYELAUDIO FM – now on Spotify

Grad school and a wiped hard drive have made it tough to churn out my usual output of mixtapes early this year. However, I am still keeping up with new music as much as possible (and there is plenty to keep up with) over at Spotify. Head over to Spotify and follow my playlist 2016 […]
