#TBT – DJ Ayres – Electrofied



DJ Ayres just recently re-uploaded his “Electrofied” mix that he did for 10 Deep and we’re sharing it today as a TBT. Lots of amazing classic Electro music. All tunes that played a huge part in the early does of hip-hop, break dancing and party rocking. Happy New Year…cause it’s electric.

2018 Playlist



2018 was a great year for music when you line em up:


As The Rub’s History of Hip Hop mix series moves into the teens, the range of styles ever widens, touching on everything from classic soul samples to weird dubstep beats. (Watch The Throne had both.) Drake, Lil Wayne and Rick Ross were featured on everything; Juicy J. was putting out mixtapes at an astonishing rate, and Meek Mill had a couple of career-defining hits. J. Cole, Big Sean, Future, A$AP Mob, Odd Future and the Black Hippy crew were the new kids on the block, and Kreayshawn and YC were the year’s biggest one hit wonders. In R&B, both The Weeknd and Frank Ocean debuted in 2011. All told, it’s a pretty incredible year to revisit!

So enjoy this blast from the recent past, and remember you can catch up on all of The Rub History of Hip Hop mixes (1979 – 2010) at http://www.itstherub.com/category/history-of-hip-hop/.

Dj Ayres Best Of Jay Z Mixtape

Jay Z was born on December 4th, 1969… he turned 49 years old just a few days ago. In honor of young Hov almost reaching a half century we look back to a mix DJ Ayres made back in 2009 with a grip of his favorite Jay Z tunes.

And tonight, December 6, 2018, we will be showing Fade to Black at The Alamo Drafthouse in downtown Brooklyn. After the movie, which documents the making of the Black Album and a star-studded concert at MSG, we’ll be playing Jay-Z songs in the bar downstairs. Tickets are still available: GET TICKETS


The next movie in our Hip-Hop History Movie Series with Alamo Drafthouse is Fade To Black. Set against Jay-Z’s 2003 sold out concert at Madison Square Garden (and threatened final performance before retirement), FADE TO BLACK explores Jay’s career, creative process, and the making of “The Black Album”, interspersed with performance of so many of his bangers – “Hard Knock Life”, “Crazy in Love”, etc. – thrown in. Includes cameos from Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, P Diddy, Common, Dame Dash, Missy Elliott, Funkmaster Flex, Slick Rick, R. Kelly, Q-Tip, Usher, Rick Rubin,?uestlove, Timbaland, Kanye, Pharrell, Just Blaze, Memphis Bleek, Beanie Sigel, Freeway, and Ghostface.

Join us after the movie in House of Wax for a special set of all Jay-Z songs to celebrate his birthday two days before!
