dj ayres at certified banannas
“A Glamorous Life” by Trent Macnamara (6 page profile in Oxford American magazine, Music Issue 2006)
“The hottest dj in Brooklyn is a mild-mannered whiteboy from Mississippi named Ayres Haxton, Jr. ONce a month on Saturday Night, DJ Ayres takes the stage at Brooklyn’s Southpaw, a big, dark, windowless club where the Borough’s wildest go to dance and sweat. For an hour he wanders among the sound mixers and racks of obscure hip-hop records, greeting people and watching his guest DJ perform for whatever crowd has gathered on the dance floor or at the bar. These are the early hours – before midnight – of The Rub, a party that began in 2002 to celebrate Ayres’s twenty-sixth birthday, and which proved so popular that Southpaw’s owner asked Ayres to re-celebrate his birthday every month. Ã‚Â¶ By midnight, when Ayres takes over the turntables, the club is usually bursting, with a crowd that dances raucously as he carefully picks his beats – his head bobbing slightly with outsized silver earphones covering one ear – working one or two songs ahead of the crowd. Some beats are staccato and loud to the point of violence, some soft and melodic. Three nights a week, at Southpaw and other clubs, Ayres experiments – with hip-hop, classic soul, reggae, Baltimore club, disco, Miami bass, old school rap, ’80s rock, and sundry other genres. He plays OutKast, Notorious B.I.G., and the Tlaking Heads. In real time he will layer the bounce theme song from Ghostbusters over an acaplella rap track containing the Mobb Deep lyrics, ‘Show you how we do it in Queens / Where murder ain’t shit, nigga.’ The main idea, of course, is to get people dancing.”

amongst his other various achievements
dj ayres is also marth stewarts personal dj…
we’ll i guess he sorta only did it once but he has been known to rock the martha stewart office christmas party. guess she has some pretty hip interns who were put in charge of planning the party… it is testament to his crowd reading skills that he had martha stewart and co. limboing and juking like crazy… Also, he proclaimed the appetizers to be next level;
Hopefully Wes get’s to write a story on this and then perhaps we can get some secret recipes or something…July 23, 2007 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm #132731
Pfunk from Roots High Power Soundsystem will be doing one of his signature dance hall mashup up airhorns like whoa sets,,, shit will be next level
Also I’m working on setting up a four dj party rocking battle
between the winners of our previous battles
so far i’ve got ginsu on board, im working on self, pos 2 and perhaps manwell or bombay. (The final battle arrangements have yet to be confirmed but i gurantee this will be hot if i can make it happen)July 27, 2007 9:14 am at 9:14 am #132732
what’s a smidge ironic about this show, is that i have 2-3 songs of kid sis remixed by ayres. i’m sad we could combine these two shows!!! individually they will be sweet… but together… that’s it for my daydreaming!July 28, 2007 12:28 am at 12:28 am #132733
