Many thanks to Chino for writing our names on our anniversary flyer and also just for general stand-up-dudery over the years. Watch the video, then read him on 12OZ Prophet, listen to him on Small Talk and buy all of his books, they’re terrific.

The Rub Seratocast

SeratoCast Mix 6 – The Rub by Serato on Mixcloud

Our friends at Serato asked us to rock volume 6 of their new Seratocast series. We kept it in the vein of our monthly Rub Radio mix, with new music from every corner of our crates, plus we debuted our new single, which comes out in August. Given all the twists and turns, we think it flows remarkably well. Big shout to Prince Rakeem for providing the intro material.

FOTR: DJ Sober


Between Prince Klassen and our special guest from Dallas, Texas is taking over The Rub this Saturday!

Coming off a packed SXSW schedule and tour stops in DC, Philly, Pittsburg and Boston (where he rocked with the homie DJ Knife to celebrate the release of “Strange Brew 4“), DJ Sober is fittingly wrapping up his tour of the Northeast as our guest at this month’s Rub.

When dude’s not putting together great mixes or smashing parties all over Texas, he’s making dope original music with PICNICTYME, his partner in Booty Fade.  Check out their recent EP here:
