5.22 – That New New



R-135287-1217087152.jpeg

It’s Monday and you know what that means – new music! Miami’s Bruno Mali Kidd just dropped a new tape last week, M.A.D.E. His gruff, rapid-fire flow is complemented by features from Rick Ross, Raheem Devaughn and Ace Hood. Burial has a new EP coming out on 5/26. Both Subtemple and Beachfire are hypnotic ambient soundtracks to your next overdose. If this one is too deep for your tastes, try his remix of Goldie’s classic “Inner City Life” which dropped last month. Thes One and DJ Day have a new EP of groovy instrumental hip-hop and scratching recorded live, with the former on the MPC and the latter on the crossfader. It’s a free download, with vinyl to come. That about does it for today, but watch out for more new music on Rub Radio tomorrow!

2/3/17: The Rub x Grits & Biscuits



clock n out

We’re very excited to announce that we’re throwing a huge party with the legendary Grits & Biscuits this Friday at Irving Plaza! If you’re feeling like we are, recent events in Washington have brought on a great deal of stress and anxiety. As we fight the good fight we also need a mental break for rejuvenation. Two of the best parties in NYC are joining forces to bring the village together on the dance floor, to escape through good music and good vibes with good people! It matters not your ethnicity, religion, sexuality, income, or race. Join Grits & Biscuits and The Rub as we clock out of the madness to celebrate ourselves and support those on the front lines! And to put our money where our mouth is, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the ACLU.

Who: All who need a mental break
What: CLOCK’N O.U.T (Over U Trump!)
When: Friday Feb 3rd – 10pm
Where: Irving Plaza – 17 Irving Place
Why: Turn on the news!

Tickets are $20 and are on sale here: http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/00005234E7909AED You must be 21+ with a valid ID for entry. All sales are general admission tickets and final.
