FOTR: Cousin Cole



FOTR this week is Cousin Cole, our other special guest for this month’s edition of The Rub at The Bell House. Originally from the Midwest, Cole has since become a NY/BK music staple and has been laying a foundation of cool music and good friend levels wherever he goes. Originally breaking out a bit back in the Hollerboard days with his club music productions and clever remixes, he started DJing on the reg in NY and eventually all over the world. A few years later, his “So Emotional” series with Phi Unit solidified the soulful movement in Moombahton as a very legitimate thing. Today, Cole’s DJing on the steady in NY and still cranking out interesting tunes whenever possible. Check out his New Year’s Day 2017 mix below along with all his relative socials. And don’t miss him throwing down this Saturday at The Rub!

Rub Radio March 2017



Spring time is in full effect with this March edition of Rub Radio. We all need some great new music in our lives as these temperatures start to creep up. New heat all over this tracklist from Smalltown DJs, Drake, Kingdom, Rick Ross, Jacques Greene, Calvin Harris and many more. Patio season is right around the corner and these tunes could very well be this year’s anthems.

3.20 – That New New



Apologies for the radio silence for the last week as SXSW is still a thing and that thing can easily pull you away from updating a blog 100%. Back at it this week though and TNN sees a big flex from 2 huge names in rap. Drake returns with More Life, a “playlist” that isn’t really an album but is and it’s 2017 and artists are finding more and more ways to release content and get people to care. Drake keeps the quality high as always and spreads his wings more into global pop stardom with “Blem” and continues the flute in rap trend with the “Portland”. Also we’ve got a new LP from Rick Ross, his first in 2 years, and he’s taking no prisoners on “Idols Become Rivals” and “Trap Trap Trap”. Stream all 4 tunes in full below.


3.13 – That New New



TNN for 2017 is now in full on go mode as the flood of new music flexing for spring and summer attention is 100% here. Big week this past week and these are just some of the new gems. First up is a brand new one out of nowhere from Frank Ocean that’s just super dope. Second sees the return of Lorde and he bucking the pressure of her sophomore turn with a beautiful piano ballad. Third we have Little Dragon dropping their first new music in 3 years and it’s literally flames. Finally, we’ve got Amine dropping his first cut of 2017 and it feels like Timbo and the Neptunes met up and got busy. Stream all 3 in full below.


These days with the ongoing political climate, there’s a serious chance that you’re super angry. For this week’s #TBT, we revisit DJ Eleven’s Fight Music: Best Of MOP mixtape that should take care of any emotions you’re having. Or at least help you take out your anger in a constructive way. Revisit this TOUGH mixtape in full with a stream above or a download below.

FOTR: Funkontrol



FOTR this week is a new project from some old friends. Skinny Friedman and Scott Melker have united to form Funkontrol. While they’ve been hard a work on music together for awhile now, the project is newly unveiled and shared with the world. They’ve signed the project to Tommy Boy Records and just released their first single, “Banker’s Club”, a couple weeks ago. It’s a brooding and crispy electro influenced hip-hop track that’s really well done. You can stream it below in full as well as click some links to follow the guys. Stay tuned for an LP from them dropping as early as this Summer.

3.6 – That New New



TNN is carrying us into the first full week of March and we’re beginning to see warm weather tunes hitting the airwaves. It’s still cold as you know what here in NY but there are signs of Spring coming in and the music is only helping things move along. First up this week is a recent one from Calvin Harris and surprise collaborators Frank Ocean & Migos. Doesn’t really matter how this song came together. I’m calling it now though…”Song of The Summer of 2017″. Second, we’ve got a new electro pop dance number from Geotic (aka Baths) and this is a really tasty patio season type vibe. Finally, we’ve got a new one from Bobby Raps. The Minnesota rapper has been quiet on the solo tip but has started to resurface with some album credits on the latest LP from The Weeknd and now his 2nd single in as many weeks. Stream all three tracks in full below.
