Our other guests this month for the May edition of The Rub are repping a relatively new party, SZN SLT. This crew is made up of Donwill and Meka, 2 names that have been around and making waves for a long time now.

He’s also a co-host of the monthly event “Shouting at The Screen” with Wyatt Cenac at Alamo Drafthouse as well as being the music supervisor for Wyatt’s HBO show, “Problem Areas”. Meka is a co-founder of 2DopeBoy, one of the best rap music and culture blogs ever.

He’s one of the hardest working and most active folks in the Brooklyn DJ scene and seems to always be rocking somewhere extremely fun whether it’s House of Yes, Tender Trap, Mad Tropical, Bembe or even overseas backing up the one and only Zebra Katz. He’s guaranteed to be playing somewhere in BK every week. And this Saturday he’ll be rocking with us at The Bell House for the May edition of The Rub.

Our second special guest on Saturday, making her debut in the main room, is Zephyr Ann. She’s an active member in all things culture in NY (by way of Cambridge, Massachusetts) and has been flexing here for some time now. Whether it’s via her DJing, a long stint working at Turntable Lab, contributing think pieces for Okayplayer or teaching youth with the Building Beats team, Zephyr is constantly sharing her voice about things she loves in a very passionate and dedicated way. She’s played rooms all over the city like House of Yes, Good Room, Our Wicked Lady, Mad Tropical and more and we’re so stoked to have her come open and close the main with us this Saturday at The Bell House.

FOTR: Brooklyn Took It



Rub week for March is finally upon us and our first guests for this month’s event are Brooklyn Took It. They are a party crew here in BK that’s been bringing some really great vibes to the soulful and vibe-friendly party scene since January of 2015. In a reluctant way, the crew of Noms, Rogue and Jamaal Orr formed like voltron to add an exciting monthly event at Friends N Lovers, their home in Bed-Stuy. In short, “Brooklyn Took It is a dance party led by resident DJs Rogue and Noumenon who spin Classic 90’s and early 2000 Hip-Hop, R&B, Funk, Soul, Breaks, Disco, and Dancehall. The rules are simple: Come as you are, ready to dance.” Check out a mix from Nom below and don’t miss this crew in the front room this Saturday at The Bell House!

FOTR: Kevlove



Another one of our special guests this Saturday at The Rub is Kevlove. He lives over the Jersey side and has been embedded in the burgeoning nightlife and club culture that’s been developing there. Any quick glance at Kev’s socials and you see that he’s loaded up with a number of gigs every single week whether in Jersey or NY/BK. Kev’s way of playing tunes though is what’s really got us becoming fans of his djing. His M.O. is really encapsulated in this quote: “What is most important to me in DJing or any project I undertake is to genuinely have the love for it. This foundation is imperative because everything else after falls into place – people begin to see your vision, you start connecting and building relationships, and opportunity begins to present itself.” PREACH. Check out his vibe for a preview via his edition of Rub Radio he did for us back in September. Stay connected with him as well on all the socials and we’ll see you all on Saturday at The Bell House.

FOTR: DJ Getlive!



One of our guests for The Rub this month is DJ GetLive! Born and raised in Queens, GetLive! has been djing since 1999 by sneaking into clubs and jumping on the decks at the tender age of 16. He’s quickly become one of our favorite DJs in the city and he’s known for his party rocking djing style that features a diverse and eclectic music selection on top of slick turntable skills that makes classic records you may have forgot about sound incredibly fresh and new again. We let him take over Rub Radio this month and he provided us with a live set from his Donuts are Forever party, an annual tribute to the one and only Dilla. He totally brought the goods on this mix. Peep this and definitely make sure you do not miss his set this Saturday at The Bell House.
