Just wanted to let everyone know we will be doing a special guest set at Santos Party House for the Freedom Party on October 10th! Super stoked to join Herbert and crew and it will surely be a night to remember. Come through!

The Rub at Freedom

While we’re in the party mood. Download our latest Rub Radio with tons of new rap tunes.

FOTR: Dj Platurn

DJ Platurn has been the homie for so long that we can’t remember how many times he’s played The Rub. (Maybe 3, maybe 4?) In the time we’ve known him, he has released a gazillion mixes (check out “So This Is De La Heaven” parts 1 & 2) and a never-ending stream of edits & remixes, as well as making The 45 Sessions THE single most important 7″s party in the country. (They’ve even got Diamond D and The 45 King guesting in December!?!?)

As he always does, Platurn will be smashing the front room with hip hop, funk, soul, and a gang of surprises! Catch Platurn at The Rub this Saturday Sept 27th!

Keep up with our dude

Prince Klassen – MiMS Mix # 33

Here’s my mellow Prince Klassen’s latest mix; I’ll let him tell you about it:

MIMS Guest Mix: PRINCE KLASSEN (Turntable Lab, NYC) by Music Is My Sanctuary on Mixcloud

Hey everyone,

Hope all is well. I wanted to send over the first part of my latest DJ mix series that I am very proud of. The mix is made up entirely of the works of Japanese super musician Yamashita Tatsuro and this first volume was made specially for Music Is My Sanctuary. Most are familiar with his hits ‘Merry Go Round’ or ‘Dancer’ and while I love those songs, I wanted to go a little deeper into his catalog as a solo artist and a studio artist.
That said となりのたつろ pt.1 features solo, studio, and cover work all praising the legendary Japanese musician. The mix spans from doo wop to boogie, reggae to city pop soul & a ballad for good measure. All genres Tatsuro has surely rekindled in his long and prolific career.
Please feel free to share amongst your friends and I hope you enjoy it!
