Rub-N-Tug are Thomas and Eric D. They started out using Rub-N-Tug as the name of their legendary NYC based after-hours parties and it eventually stuck as the name for the duo. Their first mix cd was released as a promo item for the aNYthing clothing company. Since then, they have released a second mix cd for aNYthing called "Better with A Spoonful of Leather", as well as a mix cd for Fabric of London. Rub-N-Tug have DJed all over the world in such distant locations as Japan, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Austria and England.
They also have done a night called Campfire which was held at Gavin Brown's Passerby gallery/bar, located in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City. The party spawned its own compilation for Eskimo records.
In addition to their DJing, Rub-N-Tug are in-demand producers who have remixes for Zero 7, Minimal Compact, !!!, Out Hud, Sly Mongoose, David Gilmour Girls, Roxy Music, and Coldplay under their belt.
Thomas is formerly of the SF based Wicked crew. He's a busy lad, in addition to Rub-N-Tug, he is one half of Map of Africa (a project band with DJ Harvey), and is the guy behind Bobbie Marie, Otterman Empire edits, and even had his hands in the origins of A.R.E. Weapons.
Eric has done tracks with DJ Spun under the name How & Why?. He likes chili cheese fries from Tommy's. A LOT.
