#FOTR this week is DJ Big Jacks out of Toronto. This long standing music junkie has been intensely curating his love of music since the jump with his pops. His deep crates have taken him all over the world to DJ (including this upcoming Saturday at The Rub!), mixes featured by fashion brands like H&M, Forever21, Aritzia, etc. and he’s a Toronto radio community staple along with DJ Royale, his Grand Groove DJ partner in crime, and Bozack Morris. He just released his latest mix for Aritizia a couple weeks ago and it’s quickly become a favorite for us. The vibes are super clean and will get you those glow up type of feels we’re always after. Stream it in full below and check out his links as well. And don’t miss Big Jacks at The Rub this Saturday!

TNN this week features a stack of good tunes (as always) with a flair for some “fresh” blood and some old friends. First up is the latest from PnB Rock, who just landed on XXL’s 2017 Freshmen list. Time is a dancehall flavored pop gem that feels very much like a “now” record and could very well pop. Next up is our old friend Tittsworth and his brand new LP with Scott Sanders as Reagan Bombs. This futuristic take on Go-Go is an exciting release and you can read how it all came together HERE. Finally, we’ve got a new UK bass line/garage influenced tune from another old friend in Cassady Locke. You can stream sneak peaks of all of these below.
#TBT this week is full of some of the most classic music of all time as we revisit the Rub Radio mix, Under The Boardwalk, from Summer of 2014. Ayres and Eleven put it together as an official send off to that summer and it’s a great way to kick this one off. The kids are just getting out of school and the weather FINALLY has started to resemble what it’s supposed to feel like in June. There’s nothing on this mix released after 1968 just to give you a perspective on how timeless this music really is. Revisit this nostalgia blast from the past with the stream above and download below.

FOTR this week is NYC’s own Herbert Holler. You’ve probably seen/heard him as part of the trifecta of DJs that make up Freedom Party (shout out Cozi and Marc Smooth), but he’s been lacing the NY party seen for a decade plus with feel good music. He dropped this “Friends With Benefits” mix last month and it caught our collective ears as something we wanted to share. As a dude who’s out to make people smile and appreciate music as much as he does, it definitely permeates this super fresh mix. Stream in full below and make sure to connect with Herbert on the socials.

TNN this week features a bunch of great new records to help fuel what now really should be starting to feel like Summer everywhere outside. First up is another new one from Vince Staples, featuring Ty Dolla $ign, from his forthcoming new LP due the end of this month. Next up is some yacht rock vibes from Toro Y Moi, which feels like a sleeper jam that could slay on the chill rooftop party tip. Finally is a new heater from 6lack, who’s showing quickly that last year’s debut was no fluke. Stream all 3 in full below.
#TBT this week comes from Ayres and his Sun Lovers reggae and dancehall mix that won a Scion free mix competition several years ago. This is fitting as it’s actually (almost) warm and sunny in NY finally and it’s June. Turn this one up loud as this mix is full of classics new and old and is perfect for this time of here. Revisit this one in full above.
FOTR this week is Jubilee. She’s one of our favorite people in NY and continues to make an appearance in our FOTR section as she’s constantly doing dope things. She recently released the 3rd volume of her “Magic City” Miami Bass themed compilation series, featuring tunes this go around from Ikonika, Untold, Doctor Jeep, Proper Villains and more. The whole comp is streaming now on her Soundcloud. Check it out in addition to her links and socials featured below to stay in the loop with all things Jubilee.
