We’re geeked for our special guest this month as we bring out our dude DJ Parler!
“The homie DJ Parler grinds! Parler (pronounced par-lay) is a D.C. native, music industry vet (having worked in Artist Development at Universal/ Geffen Records & KOCH Records), tour DJ for Donnis & Kidz In The Hall, resident DJ at Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival and the Donuts Are Forever party, and owner of Up To Par Audio (www.uptoparaudio.com). His live sets never fail to destroy crowds, and he’s pretty much the nicest dude you’ll ever meet.” – DJ Eleven
He’s been at the head of the class when it comes to mixes for quite some time, so if you are unfamiliar with his work, take a dip into this mix “Where’s the Love” and you’re set. High quality stuff!
He’s probably most well-known for his SAMPLOLOGY Mixtape series that truly are some of the comprehensive mixtapes you’ll find. Started up in 2007, his Notorious B.I.G, J Dilla, and Nina Simone chapters are incredible listens all the way through. Luckily, he has them ALL available for a free download on his WEBSITE.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! We cannot think of anything better to help get you into the mood than showcasing our pal Neil Armstrong’s Sweeet 10 Year Anniversary Box Set. He recently stopped by The Rub and dropped a set off and we got to say, this is one of the more impressive sets we have ever seen. Full support!
DJ Neil Armstrong is one of the DJ world’s true icons based on his extensive work as a turntablist, mixtape savant, touring DJ, and global brand ambassador. He’s toured around the world with Jay-Z, played events at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and basically made a life for himself doing what he loves. On top of that, he’s an all around good dude.
His 10 year Anniversary Box Set “Sweeet” is an incredible compilation of a series of mixes Neil has been releasing steadily for a decade. They are all must listens and truly are the perfect series for lovers or ex lovers to listen to. Just beautiful music to get down to.
You should purchase this set, along with slipmats, control records, or t-shirts on Neil’s website HERE
He also released a teaser for a track he has on one of the mixes that is definitely worth a listen:
Follow Neil on TWITTER to stay in touch with him. If he is ever playing in your town, he is someone you have to see in person.
Very excited around these parts as this week we feature our special guest for this month’s Rub and good buddy DJ Steve1der. Residing in Los Angeles, Steve1der has been one of the more influential DJ’s and producers we know. The man seemingly always has his finger on the pulse of music, but what always strikes us is his unique track selection and mixing techniques.
Well-known around the club circuit, we look forward to bringing him to The Bell House for the first time this Saturday night!
Get to know a bit of his recent remix/production work below.
If you haven’t heard his mix celebrating Nate Dogg, you’re missing out on one of the best mixes around. This one gets constant play around these parts. So clever!
Come out early Saturday night to catch one of the best in action in Brooklyn. Gonna be about the best way to start off the year we can imagine!

We are so excited to share the New Year’s Eve stage tonight with none other than our pal DJ Wonder. We know a lot of DJ’s, but this guy never stops working! Whether it’s mixes, gigs, or production, Wonder is always putting out material. He plays numerous mega-clubs in NYC (1Oak, Westway, Hotel Gansevoort, SoHo House, etc) while giving all working DJ’s a good name. If you don’t live in NYC, Wonder keeps a high profile as he mixes weekly on a radio show for Sirius Radio with Sway (yes that Sway) called “Sway in the Morning.” He is also one half of the group AnimalStatuS. Dude is legit!
Go to his website. Seriously, there is enough music to get lost in. Mixes come out multiple times a week and most of them are available for downloading.
His latest mix for the Christmas show is really good, and you can download it by following this link.
Tickets for our NYE event are SOLD OUT. We will be selling limited tickets at the door (9pm) and tickets will be available after 1am tonight for $20.
