Another Valentine’s Day has come and gone, and with it another tide of randy, amorous DJ mixes cleverly hoping to capitalize on the trending topic and incite libidos around the world. Well, you can forget about all those cheesy basslines and sultry vocals, because we have an R&B mix to end all R&B mixes. The Rub has carefully assembled Luv U Better, an hour-long set, jam-packed with early 2000s R&B joints from top-shelf vibe dealers like Brandy, Ashanti, R. Kelly, and Aaliyah, which you can stream above.

Hot and fresh out the kitchen, it’s The Rub Remixed!
The Rub’s first EP of original music was released in June, and the duo (DJ Eleven and DJ Ayres) enlisted a handful of their favorite producers to remix the four songs. Inspired by the legendary Brooklyn party, The Rub Remixed is extremely eclectic, from boom bap hip-hop to rave anthems to chill out vibes.
Marco Polo brings a 90s rap aesthetic to “Feel You,” enlisting Lil Fame from M.O.P. to add some Brooklyn grime to complement Misun’s smoky singing. German dancehall dons So Shifty lift the Natalie Storm feature “Dutty Gyal” to high energy carnival Soca levels, while XXXChange (T&A) keeps the electro feel of the original track but raves it out. Oakland’s Trackademicks (Fools Gold) smooths things out with his “Black & White” remix, delivering notes of 80s R&B and Bay slaps. Michna’s (Ghostly International) “At Night” remix is deep and lo-fi, like Afrika Bambaata scoring a Michael Mann film.
Go to The Rub website to download the original The Rub EP for free along with The Rub’s brand new mix for The Fader, and don’t miss their monthly bash at The Bell House, where they are celebrating their 11 year anniversary this summer.
Here’s the first joint we’re leaking from The Rub Remixed EP (hitting online retailers on July 30th). The homie Marco Polo took Misun back to the 90s and brought the one & only Lil Fame from M.O.P. (WHOA!!!) along for a guest verse.
