Special Delivery is back!

June 24th, 2012

For the final year that APT (the legendary NYC nightspot) was open, Moma & I held down second Fridays for our monthly party, Special Delivery.  Very quickly, it became one of the high points of my month, along with The Rub.  Days before our 1 year anniversary in 2010, APT was shut down for good.  In the past 2 and a half years, we’ve done Special Delivery as one-offs, but were always holding out for the right venue to get it up and running right.  We finally found it!

Join us Thursday, June 28th as we jump-off the all new weekly Special Delivery at Viktor & Spoils!

Fridays mornings are about to get rough again.

New Press

August 18th, 2010

With the old press page in permanent Han Solo-esque deep freeze, here’s some new press:

New York Magazine recognized our little FAM party as one of THE parties to check out in the city.  Thanks guys!  http://nymag.com/nightlife/wheretodrink/2010/dance-parties/

One friend in particular at The Village Voice had this to say about one Thursday in particular: http://blogs.villagevoice.com/music/archives/2010/04/thursday_night.php

The good folks at one of the internet’s best named blogs added my Devin mix to their interview with the man himself. Check it out at http://nerdtorious.com/2010/05/14/duderonomy-devin-the-dude-qa-dj-eleven-mix/

Shouts to the folks from Themes for Young Lovers for having me contribute a set of silly answers to some questions. (Plus I got to put this ridiculous photo to good use!) You can check out my blah blah blah at ThemesForYoungLovers.blogspot.com

The crack commando squad at Suite 903 called up The Rub dudes and asked us to come through & wax poetical about what we do, soul music, and all kinds of other good stuff. You can check it out here: www.suite903.com/2010/03/31/video-interview-with-the-rub-djs/#more-5378

New York Magazine shouted out The Rub’s History of Hip Hop (HOHH) series.  (While mistakenly giving Ayres all the credit.  Bastards!) http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2010/07/download_rap_highlights_from_e.html

The good folks at Letsmix.com let us ramble a little bit about HOHH
