We’ve got 100 skip-the-line tickets available now for tomorrow night’s 14 year anniversary party of The Rub at The Bell House. $15 (all in…no fees) jumps you right past the line and through the door to the festivities. If you can’t get any of these tickets in time, don’t worry…there will be plenty of tickets at the door. Special guest this month is DJ Sober. We hope to see you all tomorrow night!
In 2005 we made a mix CD with a bunch of our blends, and it took off like a rocket, selling worldwide and garnering a ton of praise from music magazines and even the New York Times. So much so that a lot of people thought of The Rub as a “mash-up party” and we traveled the world playing clubs in this style. Over the next four years, we released two more mixes in the “It’s the Motherfucking Remix” series, and created a spinoff vinyl collection. As we’re celebrating our 14 year anniversary this Saturday, we thought we’d re-up the entire mix series. A huge shout out to all of our guest DJs at the party over the years who gave us remixes for the CDs, and special thanks to Nick Catchdubs and Four Color Zack for making the artwork.
FOTR this week is DJ Sober out of Ft. Worth, TX. He’s also our special guest for our 14 year anniversary party this Saturday at The Bell House. Sober has been steady carving his name out in the Lone Star state for years and it’s safe to say the scene wouldn’t be what it is without him. He’s been part of long running parties such as “The Party” and “Big Bang!” and made a name for himself spinning major sporting events and traveling all over the country. He’s coming to NY to rock the front room this Saturday to celebrate this special night with us. Check out his Satin Sheets Vol. 5 from earlier this year and make sure you catch his set Saturday night as we ring in year 14.

TBT this week focuses on another one of our career highlights, Rub Radio. This monthly mix can be traced back to our radio show for Scion, which made the jump over to Brooklyn Radio after a few years. It’s become a platform to showcase what’s new and exciting in our collective music worlds as well as showcasing some great music from our friends. Sometimes we even have our DJ friends take the wheel and give us a guest mix. Some choice selections from the series are below along with some links to the entire collection and a way to subscribe to the series every month. Enjoy!

TNN keeps it moving this week as the new music flood never stops. We’ve got some electronic and hip-hop newness for you including a resounding return to form from an influential dance act. Justice are back with a new single, “Safe and Sound”. It’s party gritty french disco and part return to the pop crossover days of “D.A.N.C.E” and it feels pretty massive on first listen. Next up, we’ve got Onda flipping Gallant’s “Bourbon” into a midtempo tropical pop banger. Finally, we’ve got FLACO out of Indianapolis and his head nod vibes of “New Things” that has instant replay value. Check out all 3 in full below.
