Yup. It’s Mixtape Monday–New Year’s Edition! Q: What makes this monday different from all other mondays? A: You don’t need a stack of the newest and true-est mixtapes to get you through the grumpiest day of the workweek with your sanity intact. You need that one ultimate Mother Of All Mixtapes to provide the soundtrack to your New Year’s Eve loft party. Or romantic NYE for two on a beach in Bali. Or meditating on top of a Mayan pyramid in Tulum waiting for the sun to rise on Quintana Roo. Or trying to keep your sanity intact while you watch the ball drop on a TV in your step-parent’s rec room in Blawnox, Pennsylvania. Or WHATEVER craziness you are planning to get into at 12 midnight, December 31st, 2013.

That’s why we have foregone the usual Mixtape Monday format and teamed up with DJ Ayres and DJ Eleven–collectively known as The Rub and known to be the residents of what may be New York City’s purest dance-party party (it’s called The Rub). Don’t nobody want you to show off your obscure library records when the ball is fittin’ to drop on 12 midnight, and Ayres and Eleven kept it true to form and eschewed music show-offery for a pure selection of the year’s bangers from Drake to Disclosure to their own productions with dancehall queen (and shameless Larger Upper) Natalie Storm, all mixed in the signature Rub style. Plus they threw in a little Prince for the annoying music nerds hanging around the DJ booth to make requests (hi, that’s us). Without further ado, Okayplayer presents The Rub’s official New Year’s Eve Mixtape, 2013. Press play to enjoy below–and look for the free download to drop like a glowing crystal orb sometime between now and midnight tomorrow! Happy New Year.
