Mystery Skulls is an electronic dance-oriented neo-soul and vintage disco-influenced outfit centered around lead singer/songwriter Luis Dubuc. Dubuc was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela until he was eight, when his family moved to Toronto, where he fell in love with dance music as well as hip-hop and metal. After moving to Dallas, he played drums for the metal band Thirty Called Arson and formed the electronic pop project the Secret Handshake, whose 2009 album, My Name Up in Lights, reached number seven on Billboard's Heatseekers chart. In 2011, Dubuc ended the Secret Handshake to focus on the more dance-oriented Mystery Skulls, which took its name from an episode of the Nickelodeon series Are You Afraid of the Dark? That year, Dubuc moved to Los Angeles and released Mystery Skulls' self-titled debut EP, which featured the single "Amazing," after which he signed to Warner Bros. in 2013 and collaborated with Chic's Nile Rodgers on the project's debut album, Forever, which was released in 2014. Dubuc returned in 2017 with the single "Music," the first taste from his sophomore full-length, One of Us.
PHANGS is the dream pop notion of Nashville's Jake Germany. Blanketed in layers of synthesizers, steady pulsing percussion, and the memories of growing up in the early 90's, PHANGS stirs up familiarity and innovation under an umbrella of honesty.
SnowBlood is a high contrast pop artist; summoning both darkness and light with her synth-heavy dance pop anthems. Hailing from Los Angeles, this summer’s 30 city tour opening for Mystery Skulls will be her first. Her debut album was released October 13th, 2017, which was produced by Mystery Skulls himself. SnowBlood’s song “Savior” was recently featured on an episode of NCIS New Orleans, & her single “LoveSpell” made its debut on a trailer for Funimation’s “Yuri!!! On Ice”. Be the first to witness the budding songstress SnowBlood perform live for the first time ever this summer.
