Talented producers Eau Claire and Plastic Plates get this week’s playlist off to a spring-like start with sparkling takes on Golden Coast and Cheerleader hits. Bit Funk elevated Higher Self’s gem “Ghost” with […]

Remix Friday 3/27/15 ft Lefti, Speaker Of The House, Amtrac, The Knocks, Niklas Ibach & more

Point Lobos State Park, Carmel, CA. March 2015. Two weeks away from an inbox full of new music was pretty nice, but let’s get back to our regularly scheduled programming, shall we? I’ve had the appropriately titled Speaker Of The House remix of Catey Shaw’s “Human Contact” for a few weeks, Amtrac injected even more […]

2014 Wrap-Up: Top Tracks #20-11

20. Jack + Eliza – Hold the Line The way Jack + Eliza’s sunny vocals intertwined to perfection on their debut single “Hold The Line”. Their method of exchanging solo lines before harmonizing together wasn’t new, but excels thanks to their charming tones. I always envisioned this song best played at a beach-side sunset. 19. […]

2014 Wrap-Up: Top Remixes #14-8

We’re down to the final 14 remixes of 2014! The Knocks’ remix of HAIM’s “If I Could Change Your Mind” can claim longest reign on my weekend playlists with a March release (and still in rotation). WKND’s excellent reworking of Chet Faker’s cover (remix of a cover, got it?) was ideal beach party material. However, […]

REMIX: RAC & The Knocks Swap Remixes of “Classic” and “Cheap Sunglasses”

Two JayeL Audio top favorites from the days before Remix Friday have to be producers RAC and The Knocks. While both have had recent success in the originals department, they haven’t been shy about sharing amazing beats with other acts (see RAC’s take on Tove Stryke and The Knocks dynamite HAIM reworking). RAC’s spin on […]

Remix Friday 8/15/14 ft Star Slinger, Turbz Music, SNBRN, The Knocks & more

Franklin St @ the Dequindre Cut. Detroit, MI. August 2014. Friday means Remixes. This week’s batch of reworkings comes with plenty of newcomers that I hope to hear more from. SNBRN house-ifies Mark Morrison’s ’90s class “Return Of The Mack”, while the hilariously named T&A Brigade puts a tropic spin on Akon’s underrated “I’m So […]
