Ever since coming up in his hometown of Los Angeles’ freestyle and hip-hop scene in the early 80s, Duncan has been a sound selector extraordinaire. With partner Thomas Bullock, he threw the notorious late 20th century Rub-n-Tug disco parties in downtown Manhattan, turning on a new generation of revellers to the sleazy pleasures of disco. He followed that up as the Saturday night resident at Passerby Bar, fuelling the party until Sunday morning. Be it slo-mo disco, incandescent funk, or banging house music, Duncan weaves it all together into a nightlife soundtrack. In the studio, Dunks has remixed everyone from LCD Soundsystem to Zero 7, the Beastie Boys to Coldplay, !!! to Roxy Music, Patrick Wolf to Grace Jones. Now it’s time for folks other than New York City’s 24 Hour Party People to get a dose of Dr. Dunks’s medicine. Forthcoming is the eagerly-anticipated Rub-N-Tug full-length album, as well as the first album from Still Going. . Noice! Described by the legend DJ Harvey as “the best dj on the planet right now
