A high-impact mix of tech-house, techno, house and Baltimore club


Originally from Mississippi, DJ Ayres or Ayres Haxton Jr. as his parents know him, 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.

Growing up on a diet of Delta Blues, Miami Bass, alternative rock and hip-hop, Dj Ayres paid dues in the upstate New York town of Poughkeepsie (along with the likes of Mark Ronson and Darshan Jesrani of Metro Area), where he divided his time between scratching in dorm rooms, hosting radio shows, djing at local bars, promoting shows and fulfilling his insatiable appetite for indie hip-hop singles and mixtapes – a pedigree that has now seen Ayres go on to dj in over 60 cities across the globe with the likes of Ghostface Killah, Public Enemy, The Chemical Brothers, Snoop Dogg, DJ AM, Z-Trip, Diplo, Santogold, Spank Rock, LCD Soundsystem, Justice and countless more.

Further cementing his status as a key player in American club culture is the fact that Ayres has released tons of great remixes and original production, both on his own T&A label (with partner Tittsworth) plus Money Studies, GAMM, ESL, Scion A/V and more. Ayres produced and released more than 40 mix CDs in the last five years, prompting The New York Times to hail him as “one of New York’s best mixtape DJs.” He cohosts two online radio shows with The Rub, and continues to donate his services to fundraisers for Brooklyn Academy of Music, Planned Parenthood, Families of 911, Tsunami & Katrina survivors and more.
