    “A Glamorous Life” by Trent Macnamara (6 page profile in Oxford American magazine, Music Issue 2006)

    excerpt:

    “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. ¶ 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…

    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!

    Ayres and Tittsworth Mixin it up for DiscoBelle (June 07)

    http://www.zshare.net/audio/2179760ab06d43/

    This is the house side, but be we’ll aware they is known for their HIP-HOUSE and Multi-genre Mash-Up in your bloodclot face steez…

    so I expect plenty of dirty house electro mixed with crunktastic street anthems….

    also heres a link to the Rub Radio

    Much more of a hip hop vibe to this 3 hour mix
