The Rub at The Bell House 11.28


11.28 – Skip-the-line Tickets

We’ve got 100 skip-the-line tickets for tomorrow night’s party and they’re going very fast. $15 (all in…no fees) jumps you right past a long wait in line, regardless of when you show up to The Bell House. Otherwise, The Rub line is always a roadblock by 11:00 pm. So if you don’t want to wait and don’t jump at this deal, you’re unfortunately stuck having to come out early to avoid the chaos. Special guests this month are DJ Pump and DJ Run P.



FOTR (Friend of The Rub) this week and one of our guests Saturday night at The Bell House is Brooklyn’s DJ Run P. Run is about as accomplished as they come and would much rather talk to you about “the experience” before anything else. This dude certainly knows his samples as well, since he was given his first set of turntables at the age of 11 and has been a self-proclaimed student of music ever since. Check out some of his links below as well as this recent mix from this past 4th of July and don’t miss his set this Saturday for The Rub.

11.23 – That New New

Thanksgiving week is upon us and of course the 4th quarter flood of new music continues to come in. Interesting new stuff this week to share with you from Tkay Maidza (produced by Baauer, What So Not & George Maple), ILoveMakonnen with Santigold and FKi and Chrissy with Miles Bonny. A bit of a collaboration flavor to this week’s picks if you will. Stream all 3 of these new tasty musical treats below.

TBT: Rub Radio – Luv U Better Mix

Rub Radio – Luv U Better Mix by Brooklyn Radio on Mixcloud

While this was originally released a couple years ago as a Valentine’s Day themed mix, the stress of the recent political climate and flood of opinions on social media made love seem like something very important was being overtly ignored. Enter today’s #TBT mix in this Luv U Better Mix for THUMP that’s loaded with so much amazing late 90’s and early 00’s R&B bangers, it should immediately improve your mood. Guessing you’ll be reminiscing quite heavy as well…

11.18 – That New New

#TNN (That New New) shows up a couple days late this week but that doesn’t mean there’s any shortage of cool and interesting new music out there. We’ve got one of my favorite cuts from Justin Bieber’s newly released album that’s quite good in it’s entirety (you read that right). Also there’s a banger from Young Thug’s new Slime Season 2 mixtape. Lastly, and more on the offbeat tip, is the new EP from the 333 Boyz. Click some links below and do some listening.


#FOTR (Friend of The Rub) this week is one of our guests at The Bell House on the 28th and Canada’s very own, DJ Pump. Truly one of the country’s best secrets, Pump is one of our favorite DJs who knows exactly when to flex on the turntablism and when to rock it strictly for the party. His accolades include being a Canadian DMC and ITF battle champion and his mixtapes are always a very entertaining listen. Case in point, his fairly recent “New Topic 3” mix below, which is a stimulating listen of new and old-school boom bap with Pump’s ever present flair. Check it out along with all his socials below and make sure to catch Pump later this month in BK for The Rub!
