The Rub 15 Year Anniversary Mix

There’s no way we could fit all the songs that defined The Rub over the last 15 years into an hour-long mix, though we’ll try to cram them into six hours at the party on Saturday. Instead we hit record and played songs that sound great mixed one after another, from hip-hop to funk to afro-house to freestyle to electro to disco to R&B to reggae. Big love goes to Spin for premiering the mix!
