Mixpak 025 is brought to you by DJ Ayres, founder of legendary NYC hip-hop party The Rub, that sees its 10th anniversary next year. Alongside his worldwide DJ gigs and presenting a radio show on Brooklyn Radio (and now on Scion A/V too), Ayres is responsible for a heap of official and unoffical party-smashing remixes in a huge range of genres, from Pro Nails to Move on Up to his latest remix of Max Glazer's Flatlands riddim. For Hip Hop heads, The Rub's History of Hip Hop podcasts are unmissable, just as his T&A Breaks LP is for B-More fans.
Alongside Tittsworth, Ayres also heads up T&A Records, the label that counts Dave Nada's 'Moombahton' EP, TNT's 'Hot Gyal' and Munchi's 'Murda Sound' amongst its 28 releases. His versatility as a collector and selector is only further exemplified by his exclusive Mixpak FM mix, which runs seamlessly through Dancehall, Jungle, Moombahton, Funky and even a few Mixpak releases. Ring the alarm.
