#TBT – The Glamorous Life



For this week’s #TBT mix we dig deep and revisit Eleven and Ayres’ The Glamorous Life. This mix was the first of three and featured classic Boogie / R&B / New Jack Swing cuts from the likes of Sheila E, Bobby Brown, SOS Band, Vanity, Gap Band + so many more.

Listen below or download here(right click, save).



For this week’s #TBT mix we’re taking it back to 94…
As you know The Rub has finally brought back the History of Hip Hop series. Our next mix is 2014 so let’s take a look at that golden era 20 years before that shaped it all. So many absolute classics in one year, and with over 100k plays on Mixcloud it’s obvious these sounds are still as important as ever.

#TBT The Rub – Going Back To Cali



Right around a decade ago, The Rub did a Summer West Coast tour and commemorated this journey with their very appropriately titled mix, Going Back to Cali. This mix showcases a wide variety of tunes with an obvious homage to a number of artists who have been instrumental in putting the West on the map and continuing that long standing tradition of excellence. The beauty of this mix to me though it never stays in one place stylistically or regionally, and the flow of sample drops in between their modern era flips is all too slick. Revisit this mix with a listen above and see if this doesn’t make you want to hit Cali for an end of summer getaway.

#TBT – DJ Ayres – DJ Ayres’ Laboratory



DJ Ayres’s Laboratory by Dj Ayres on Mixcloud

TBT this week back to one of the mixes Ayres dropped as a series with the insanely talented Mike 2600 designing all the cover art. This week, we go back to DJ Ayres’ Laboratory set that’s loaded with catchy indie dance tunes, remixed pop gems, snap rap classics and some tastefully turnt levels sprinkled in for good measure. Mixed with the touch that only Ayres can provide. Revisit this in full with the stream and download below.
