Friends of The Rub – DJ Parler

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 ( 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.

You can keep up with Parler on TWITTER and FACEBOOK.
