We’re the first to admit that mOma gets more shine on The Rub blog than pretty much anyone, and we offer no apology, because he consistently does dope shit. We first heard him play these Rihanna remixes (done with Guy Furious) at The Rub Halloween party, and we were sweating them even before we knew he and Guy did them. Uptempo, sort of Soca-meets-UK-Funky beats with Rihanna vocals on top, I mean what’s not to like!?! Download at Bandcamp (Name Your Price)
FOTR this week is Risk One. The Bay Area native unfortunately lost his life to cancer back in September and the DJ community has been mourning his loss ever since. He was immensely loved by his friends and peers and he was always a blast to catch behind the decks. Hollerboard alumni, Crooklyn Clan top seller and working DJ world traveler…he made people smile everywhere he would go. Tonight, many of his friends and loved ones will be gathering to celebrate his life in Dolores Park, San Francisco. We remember him today by sharing his last mix he posted and all of his links below. RIP Marques Lewis aka Risk One.

TNN is back this week after a week off and we’re officially closing out November as well as getting so close to the end of this tumultuous year. Some big guns have unloaded with new releases in the last week or so and there definitely seems to be a feel of nostalgic sounds in the air, at least in the pop world. First up this week is a new one from The Weeknd’s polarizing new LP. “A Lonely Night” is one of the many contributions from Max Martin on the album and easily one of the stand out cuts (*EDIT-Full album from The Weeknd has been added*). Next is a last week hold over from the retro fitted new (super short) Bruno Mars full length. “Finesse” sounds like it’s straight out of the Bell Biv Devoe catalog. Finally, we’ve got a cut from the recently dropped collab EP from Gucci Mane and Lil Uzi Vert. Stream all 3 in full below.
Not sure if 9 PM or 10 PM and we are still working on a flyer BUT if you want to go ahead and buy a ticket, we’d love to see you!
Get stuffed! This year we’re thankful for our friend Rok One, who gave us this cornucopia of plenty for Rub Radio.

FOTR this week is our special guest again this upcoming Saturday, Rok One. Rok is simply a staple of NY nightlife and one of our favorite djs in the city. He’s been a guest of The Rub too many times to count now and it’s always a pleasure to have him play with us because he’s such a solid DJ! Whether it’s rocking at The Woods, private events all over the city or knocking out original productions with his Black Russian project, Rok is always bringing the goods. Case in point…check out Rok’s latest mix below and make sure to stay up with all of his relevant socials.

TNN is back in the fold this week after a week off and we’ve got some big records to share with you. It was literally a challenge to limit it to just 3 this week but here goes. First up is the official video to A Tribe Called Quest’s “We The People”, the lead single to their first LP in 18 years that went straight to #1 on the Billboard Top 200. Next, we’ve got a surprisingly great new sound to feature from Childish Gambino. He’s apparently ditched the rap in favor of some Prince and Funkadelic type vibes and the results are shockingly very dope. Finally, we’ve got a favorite album cut from the recently released new LP from Justice. Stream all 3 in full below.
TBT this week is an hour and a half of incredibly funky music from DJ Eleven Live at The Do-Over LA in August of 2013. Easily one of the most famous parties on the planet, Eleven brought it like he always does. Classics and new bangers from that Summer pepper this mix in a relenting assault. Stream in full above and let warm weather vibes give you a hug on this Thursday in November.
