#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.

TBT this week is when we used the May 2015 edition of Rub Radio as an excuse to hop into the Delorean and fire up the flux capacitor for a quick romp through 80s synth-pop, new wave and post-punk. Classic feels across the board from Ministry, Depeche Mode, Kim Wilde, Duran Duran, New Order and so many others. You can revisit this mix with the full stream above or free download below.

Stream above and download below.

TBT this week to our History of Hip-Hop mix from 2007. Are these tunes really 10 years old at this point? Good lord. So many of these gems were club bangers and were downloaded in masses on the Hollerboard and some of them even got famous on that infamous messageboard. Arguable that B.o.B.’s career was started there, flat earth controversy many years later aside. What an amazing year for rap. Ye, Jay, Benny & Spankrock, Kid Cudi, Dude & Nem, Cool Kids, Kid Sis, Rich Boy, 50 and so much more. Revisit this amazing year for rap with the stream above and free download below.

TBT this week takes us back to Spring 3 years ago with the March 2014 edition of Rub Radio. Bunch of huge names here like Beyonce, Katy Perry, Kanye, Lil Wayne, Pharrell, Major Lazer, etc and some anthems like Drunk In Love and YG’s My Nigga are probably hits forever. But what really standouts in this mix is the absolute bangers from some of these aforementioned big names, and some names that may or may not be household in 2017, that didn’t really run game on the charts. The Maino, Juvenile, Justin Martin, Jack Beats and Major Lazer joints really stand out. That old Blaqstarr tune sprinkled in always sounds fresh as well. Revisit this one in full above.
