ABOUT DJ AYRES
Originally from Mississippi, DJ Ayres is famous for being the founding father of The Rub, the Brooklyn monthly party that swiftly gained a reputation for being “The Best Party in NYC” (New York Press) back in 2002 and to this day remains one of the staples of NYC nightlife. Combining everything from 80’s pop and disco to house, reggae and hip-hop, The Rub provides “something for everyone, no matter what you’re into,” (resident Cosmo Baker) and in the process helped launch DJ Ayres into worldwide consciousness as one of the best mixtape-making, party dj’s around. Further cementing his status as a key player in American club culture is the fact that Ayres has released over 20 remixes, both on his own T&A label plus Money Studies, GAMM, ESL, Scion A/V and more.
