TNN is back this week after a week off and of course there’s a bunch of interesting new tunes that have been released in that time. Huge names like Beyonce and Future are featured below with new stuff as Bey drops her first single and video in over a year. Future however dropped his second LP of 2016 already. Rounding it out is the large new single from Baauer’s forthcoming debut album. All three streaming in full.
#TBT this week comes from DJ Ayres and his 3 year old mix for The Hairpin with his Safe For Work II mix. As a follow up to the lost first volume (Soundcloud removals are oh so real), this is vibe friendly mix full of non-offensive language tunes for the office crowd. Janet, Kylie, Frank Ocean, Bjork and more all holding down this great mix of 90’s, diva house and chill feels. Revisit the stream below in full.
FOTR this week is Jason Stewart, aka Them Jeans. Jason was the first person to bring The Rub out to Los Angeles over 10 years ago, and at this point he’s the mayor of LA as far as we’re concerned. His work as a DJ, producer and promoter has shaped the LA nightlife and music scene since most of you were in short jeans. Plus if you’re not already up on it, his Tall Tales podcast is a delight. Check out the most recent show with guests Asher Roth and Jake Troth, along with some other links, below.

EDIT: These are officially SOLD OUT. Tickets will be available at the door tomorrow night.
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 guest this month is DJ Riz. See you tomorrow night.
FOTR this week is DJ Riz, who also happens to be our guest this Saturday at The Bell House in Brooklyn. It’s our first edition of The Rub in 2016 and there may not be a better DJ in the world to do it with. Riz has truly reached a higher level of DJs in the game and his skills have always been nothing less than jaw dropping. We already shared the recorded sets from his legendary last visit to The Rub just last week. Below is maybe the most famous influential tape Riz ever made with Live From Brooklyn. Check them all before this Saturday and make sure to click some links below.
Stay Up With DJ Riz
There was such a steady flow of great new music this week that it made picking things out for TNN a bit of struggle. Needless to say, 2016 is off to a phenomenal start with some amazing music being released along with some familiar names returning after some time away from sharing new tunes. Up first is the brand new single from AlunaGeorge featuring Popcaan that’s sure to be massive soon. Second, there’s the new haunting vibes from Different Sleep with Angelina Lucero featured on vocals. Finally, this past week saw the epic return of Munchi and his label, Selegna Records. Stream all 3 in full below.
