FOTR: Dirtyfinger



FOTR this week is NY DJ Dirtyfinger. He’s definitely one of the hardest working folks in the BK scene and seems to always be rocking somewhere extremely fun whether it’s House of Yes, Tender Trap, Bembe or even overseas backing up the one and only Zebra Katz. You’re guaranteed to have multiple spots to check him every week. Period. And this Saturday he’ll be rocking with us at The Bell House for the January edition of The Rub. Check his fresh mix for #LovelessFM on Lot Radio from last year below. Click some links and give him a follow on the socials as well.

1.23 – That New New



January 2017 is almost already over and TNN this week examines some nu nu from the past week or so as we tie a weirdly odd and stressed bow on month one of the new year. Speaking of weirdly odd, you have to watch this beautiful disaster that is the video for Young Thug’s “Jeffrey”. Is it a real situation that was documented to perfection? One would have to say yes. Next is a new one from Maggie Rogers (remember the music student who made Pharrell cry last year?) and she knocks her deliciously new school folky sound out of the park again. Finally, is new comer MarcLo and his tune “SWNGN” which flips Montell Jordan (which flipped Slick Rick who flipped Bob James) but does it with new school taste and flair. Peep all 3 in full below.

#TBT – Winter Sadness



Winter Sadness 1 by Djeleven on Mixcloud

TBT this week back to Eleven’s super smooth Winter Sadness mix. Yeah, it’s that time of the year where it always feels dreary with the cold and clouds. Whether it’s the political climate or actual temperature that’s put that frown on your face, one quick revisit of this mix should help turn that frown right around. Classic Soul, Hip-Hop and Reggae on full display here with a side of hot cocoa and your trusty space heater. Stream in full above or grab that download below.

FOTR: Pushermania



FOTR this week is Matt Sonzala aka Pushermania. He’s a legend in Texas and internet circles for repping all things dope in Texas and in general. As a scene developer and influencer, he’s made his mark over the years as a consultant for music oriented companies, artists, labels, festivals, brands and more. He was also a pretty legendary figure in the Hollerboard days and we absolutely have to give him a nod for helping make Sabbath In The Park the celebrated experience it became. He celebrated a birthday yesterday and has been cranking out a great new podcast on the reg. Give the most recent edition a listen below and click some links to keep tabs on what this dude stays up to.

1.16 – That New New



The new release flow for 2017 is definitely getting itself going and the heat is really starting to roll out. First up is the brand nu nu from Migos. Sure “Bad and Boujee” is the #1 song in the country right now but “T-Shirt” is out now and it’s flames and so is the video. Next we’ve have a solo sighting from Syd of The Internet fame. Definitely a different side to what we’re used to from her but this is fly. Finally, in more ways the one, we’ve got new music from SZA and word of her new album will see the light of day soon. Peep all 3 in full below.


#TBT – Rub Radio – January 2014



#TBT this week comes from the Rub Radio archives. 3 years ago for 2014 definitely doesn’t sound like that long ago. It’s light years in internet time though. Luckily the ears of Ayres of Eleven are keen to sounds that stick around. And there’s a few tracks from this mix holding strong in DJ sets to this day. Kid Ink, Yo Gotti, Busta w/ Q-Tip and Beyonce all stand out here. Inclusions here from future big names like Baauer, Tensnake & Gorgon City don’t hurt either. Revisit this one in full above with the download below.

FOTR: 2¢



The first FOTR for 2017 is the dudes DJ Craze and Four Color Zack who make up the duo 2¢. We’ve featured them here before and as solo DJs, they should really need no introduction. They’ve just dropped the 3rd edition of their mix series and it’s as tight and inspiring as the first 2. You can stream Part 3 below in full and make sure and follow them on the socials as well. Get up with these guys who you haven’t already as it looks like they will be doing a lot of dates together in the U.S. this year.
