Rub Radio (Brooklyn Radio)

missing image

In July 2002, The Rub began with a simple goal: the creation of a classics and hip-hop party to be held on the first Saturday of every month at Southpaw in Brooklyn, NY. We do it Brooklyn style: great dance music mixed well, affordable drinks, and real people; no dress code, no bottle service, no VIPs and no celebrity DJs. The combination of great music, a hot and sweaty dance floor, and phenomenal word-of-mouth buzz for the party brought the people there. The unparalleled mix of hip hop, disco, 80s, reggae, funk, house and everything in between keeps them coming back. In addition, the three DJs have been releasing mixtapes at a breakneck pace, traveling to gigs around the world, and put out six official Rub CDs and 11 records. Over the last few years, The Rub boys have DJed in over 50 cities in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia and everywhere in between alongside Public Enemy, Chemical Brothers, Justice, Slick Rick, Diplo, Mark Ronson, Moby, A-Trak, DJ Premier, Blonde Redhead, MSTRKRTFT, Spankrock, and Grandmaster Flash, to name a few.

Started in 2002 at Southpaw by DJ Ayres, DJ Eleven, and Cosmo Baker, The Rub does it Brooklyn style: great dance music mixed well, affordable drinks, and real people; no dress code, no bottle service, no VIPs or celebrity DJs.

An unparalleled mix of hip hop, disco, 80s, reggae, funk, house and a fearlessness for breaking new records keeps the crowd bouncing.
