So our good friend DJ Anonymous is in town from Helsinki this week… Well actually he’s been trying to get to New York for the past 2 weeks but that damn volcano was fucking up the program. But he finally made it and so we’re having a last minute throwdown with the dude. He’s a great homie, and the first supporter of The Rub in Finland (which is one of my favorite places to play in the world. So this Wednesday we’re gonna go all in, all vinyl, at the Down South Lounge which is the basement of Southpaw. Nothing of great music, great people, cheap drinks and no cover charge so hope to see you out.

The Rub Up CD Giveaway



I’m always looking for a good excuse to spend a bunch of time going through new reggae, especially when I’m on the road. Sheeit, any old excuse will do. Ayres & I decided we wanted to do a giveaway with our “Rub Up” mixCD (art & tracklist at www.djeleven.com/rub_up.html) so a new mix of reggae is the perfect promo for it. Boom! Excuse delivered. For the lucky first 50 people to email us at [email protected] with their mailing address, you will have a shiny new copy of “Rub Up” in your mailbox in a couple weeks. – DJ Eleven
