The end of June is upon us and summer is officially in full swing. And on the TNN tip, there is never any slowing down with solid and notable new tunes coming out. It seems to be just a way of life in 2016. First up, we’ve got a huge new posse cut from Jeezy, 2 Chainz and Future called “Magic City Monday”. 2 Chainz stays stealing the show like always. Second, we’ve got a new original from NY house producer, Moon Boots. He drops a really smooth foray into ’90s influenced classic dance vibes. Finally, we’ve got a new cut from THEY., an eclectic duo that’s burst onto the music scene in the last 12 months. Their latest, “Say When”, is a super rouged and bluesy banger. You can stream all 3 in full below.

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 Steve1der! See you all tomorrow night.
FOTR this week is our good bud Steve1der. He’s been a fixture in LA for well over a decade whether on the DJ or remixer tip and is highly influential in both realms with working DJs all over the world. He’s always been one of those working DJ heads that actually has his ear to the ground for new sounds and has a knack for helping break dope records and plays them in way where they resonate with the listener. This Saturday, he returns to BK for his 2nd trip to The Rub and we’re super stoked to have him back in the building. He also provided our guest mix for Rub Radio this month, which you can peep below as well as keeping up with all his socials. And make sure to not miss his set Saturday night at The Bell House!

TNN this week was the second week in a row that some “lesser” names in music had some room to breathe and get some new music heard. This year has been so bombarded with big name releases that it’s been a challenge to really find that true “new new”. This week saw the first single and video for Danny Brown’s new album drop and this gothic rowdy club vibe suits him very well. Newcomer Maggie Rogers got a huge plug from Pharrell in a critical listening session at NYU that went viral on the web and now that song in the video, “Alaska”, is up for the whole world to hear in it’s completed form. Finally, we’ve got the LP return of YG and a killer album cut “Gimmie Got Shot”. Peep all 3 in full below.
Your favorite summer jump off of West Coast party jams, Str8 West Coastin, is back at Project Parlor. This summer’s run of 3rd Saturday’s in June, July and August kicks off this Saturday. DJ’s Still Life, Dopeshoes and our own DJ Eleven always make this one of the best summer day parties in NY. The story from the crew reads as follows…
The sixth summer of Brooklyn’s celebration of West Coast rap and backyard BBQ culture kicks off on Saturday June 18th. The first party of the season is always a special one, signaling that the gates are finally open for summer fun. As always, we have some of the best DJs in NYC spinning nothing but West Coast rap, quality food on the grill, and a few tricks up our sleeve. Don’t act like you haven’t missed us.
Once again this year, Str8 West Coastin’ takes place on the third Saturdays in June, July and August at Project Parlor in Bed-Stuy. Mark your calendars for 6/18, 7/16, and 8/20. We’ll see you in the backyard.

FOTR this week is the Night Bass don AC Slater. He’s been putting wobbles in house music long before bass house (or EDM for that matter) was a buzz word and continues to slang it all in multiple ways in 2016. Between his Night Bass label, his own production output and being a constant ambassador for the scene, AC Slater works as hard as anyone for the sound and vibe he’s helped cultivate from the ground up. Yesterday saw the release of his latest solo EP “Bass Inside” on OWSLA. The video for the title track and stream for the collaboration with fellow low end house figurehead, Chris Lorenzo, are below. Check em out and click some links to stay in the loop with AC.

TNN this week gets off to somber tone as we’re still reeling from the weekend’s real life tragic events in Orlando. We believe like many of you do…the best thing we can all do is practice love and tolerance…and to just keep going. And while the releases from this past week may be light on the bigger names like previous weeks, the quality is still high. First up is the bubbling Florida rapper Kodak Black, who released his brand new mixtape over the weekend. “Vibin In This Bih” is a standout and features the gawd Gucci Mane. Second, we see a grime remix drop from Murlo, who’s a producer who continues to show his versatility genre wise but always maintains a signature sound. Finally, we’ve got new comer Khalid who dropped a surefire pop gem that hopefully puts a smile on your face. All 3 tunes are streaming in full below.
