Brent Tactic is spinning at The Rub tomorrow, June 30. Brent is a Taurus, loves cats, and enjoys fine dining and walks on the beach. A music industry professional and seasoned disc jockey, he will amaze and astound with his impeccable selections and skills. You can enjoy Brent’s wit and learn about his many gigs on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter too. And listen to Brent’s mix on Rub Radio right here.
This month our homies Brent Tactic and Dirtyfinger take over Rub Radio! They’re both DJing with us at the party on Saturday, so here is a little taste of how it’s going down at The Bell House this weekend.

lazy old farts hustling artist-entrepreneurs and we don’t always make time to update our blog, but we have all this great music and culture we like to share – so we’ve brought in a slightly younger fart dynamic social media expert to help us. So this is a massive shout to Brent Tactic for lighting a fire on The Rub blog and keeping it burning! If you haven’t been paying attention, scroll down and check out new songs and videos we love, spotlights on our friends doing cool things, throwback mixes and much more. Incidentally, Brent is also a terrific DJ who recently moved to Brooklyn and he will be rocking with us at The Rub on Saturday! And if you can’t make it in person, do yourself a favor and listen to Brent on Soundcloud.
This was the last regular Rub party. We’ll be back for a Halloween reunion every year, but The Rub is no longer a monthly or quarterly party.
Residents: DJ Eleven and DJ Ayres
Guests: DJ Low Beezy, DJ Lindsey, Prince Klassen and Brent Tactic

“Dat New New” is a Kid Cudi song from 2008 and “That New New” is a weekly feature where we, The Rub, tell you about new music we rate.
The Migos – Walk It Talk It (ft. Drake)
Migos have a new album called Culture II which is about four hours too long but there are a good handful of diamonds in that rough, especially the songs with features. 21 Savage, Cardi B, 2 Chainz and Drake all bring an element of surprise to what is otherwise a fairly unremarkable project from the hugely influential Atlanta trio.
Okay Kaya – IUD
Here’s what you need to know: Okay Kaya is from Norway, this beat is like a slow wave syrup rolling onto a tropical beach, and the lyrics are about going to the clinic with her boyfriend to get a birth control implant. Fun story: my Swedish friend pronounces “Planned Parenthood” as “Planet Parenthood,” which sounds like an infinitely more cheerful place. Which is as good a place as any to transition to the Young Fathers.
Young Fathers – In My View
Brent Tactic sent this one over and we were not up on Young Fathers, who sound a little like TuneYards – bespoke, distorted beats and more or less traditional indie vocals. It works though!
Listen to all 3 songs plus new ones from Chromeo and The-Dream, Keys N Krates and Drake below:

A ton of new music is out so we’re just going to run through some of our favorite loosies:
Keys N Krates are back with a fresh sound for 2018 on their new single. This one is way more in the mid-tempo Kaytranada world than their usual trapper fare – and listen, we’re here for both styles! But it’s a really fun release to set off their big US tour. Go see them, you will be blown away, we promise!
New Gent & Jawns is in entirely the opposite direction – “Champion Sound” is a full on dubstep laser fest, sure to start a mosh pit.
Rob Pursey said it best – “Yo Kendrick – so you think you’re the only one who can do stupid voices? Hold my beer” – Future. This is another single from the Black Panther and it’s a little extra, IDK maybe it will grow on us?
Really really infectious! This one feels like a hit.
This is airport reggae of the very highest caliber.
Out of everyone in the mumble generation, Lil Uzi Vert delivers with the most consistency and most charisma.
Brent Tactic always sends us cool stoney R&B, and this one is especially dope.
