Rub Radio this month is mixed by DJ M!LLS, who will be playing the party on Saturday, September 28. (Plus he has been designing our flyers for the last two years!) The mix is chock-a-block with summer bangers, perfectly wrapping up the season, and even teases a handful of future hits going into fall.
This month we’re joined by DJ Dirtyfinger, both on Rub Radio and at the party at The Bell House on Saturday 8/31! Our August mix boasts a wide variety of shit we’re feeling, including new rap, dancehall, afrobeats, house, R&B and NOLA brass.

2015 feels like it was yesterday, and this mix is chock full of anthems that still get run in the clubs and on the radio, like Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” and Desiigner’s “Panda.” Then there are the viral hits that helped to define the current culture (think “Hotline Bling,” “Look At My Dab,” “Milly Rock.”) But our favorites are the songs in the margins, songs like “Wavybone,” and “The Blacker The Berry,” and “Good Times.”
As always with The Rub’s History of Hip Hop series, the goal is to expand the canon to include not only the most popular songs of the year but also all of the forgotten greatness. But most importantly it’s a banging mix from start to finish!
July 27 marks 17 years since the first night The Rub threw a party at Southpaw, and we want to celebrate with you!

For this week’s #TBT we warm it up with Dj Moma (one of this month’s guests!).
Our “Heavy Warm Up” mixes were a series of mixtapes dedicated to the sounds you might hear finessed in the first hour at the club. DJ mOma is one of our closest Rub affiliates, and a hell of a DJ. Everyday People vibes on deck…
