What's the Rub? Glad you asked. The Rub are a DJ collective from NYC consisting of Cosmo Baker, DJ Eleven and DJ Ayres. They're renowned for their History of Hip Hop mixtapes that compile a year's worth of classics from 1979 to 1999 (talk about obsessiveness; DAMN), their clever mashups, their regular night at Brooklyn's Southpaw club and their overall party-rocking prowess.
One of the Rub crew, DJ Ayres, mans the decks tonight at Detroit Bar. This cat gives you maximum bang for your ADHDance-music buck. Expect to hear lots of familiar cuts recontextualized and given fresh makeovers. The fact that dude looks like an Amish carpenter only enhances his appeal.
Here's a teaser for you—Ayres' remix of Notorious B.I.G.'s “Dead Wrong.”
