DJ Garth (Wicked / Grayhound)
Before moving to Los Angeles in 2010, Garth spent two decades in San Francisco fanning the flames of conscious hell raising that existed there in generations past. Parties with his stamp include a coveted ten year residency at Come Unity, thirteen legendary years with the Wicked Sound System and since 2005, Back2Back with right hand man Jeno. His sound is a definitive fusion of Acid House, Space Disco & Psyche Rock. He is behind the monthly SPANK! parties in LA with TK Disco.
The Wicked crew reformed in 2011 for a 13 city Twenty Years of Disco Glory Tour of the States & Japan. Garth also spent a good chunk of 2010/2011 touring extensively with DJ Harvey in Australia and Japan.
Bringing UK sound system culture to San Francisco in 1991, Wicked's lawless full moon beach parties ushered in an era of Acid House hysteria that ripped through the west coast and spread into the heartland. Wicked are credited widely with kick-starting the City's rave scene in the early 90's, cementing its reputation as the red headed step child of Disco.
Scoring a Tony Andrews designed Turbosound rig, they toured in a '47 Greyhound bus whose previous owners were a gospel choir hitting the road to spread their own gospel across the States. Wicked was the pioneering sound system at Burning Man in 1995.
They brought the best DJs the world had to offer to San Francisco including the first time Bay Area performances of House/Disco luminaries like Tony Humphries, DJ Harvey, Louis Vega, Francois K, Joe Clausel, Roger S, Robert Owens, Stacy Pullen, DJ Pierre and K Alexi.
Garth holds court at many of the world's best nightclubs including Eleven, Mago, Gold, Yellow, Townsend, 1015, The Roxy, Twilo, Fabric, The End, Horsemeat Disco, Sublevel, Thirtynine Hotel, Rex, Room, Lux & Zouk. He has been voted amongst America's top DJs in Urb, XLR8R and DJ Magazines. For many years he pioneered all night Dub sets on the only renegade system permitted at Reggae on the River where Jamaican legends Mikey Dread and Junior Reid stopped by the bus to rock the mic.
Eric Duncan aka Dr. Dunks (Rub n Tug / Still Going -NYC)
Eric Duncan aka Dr. Dunks is best known for being one half of the legendary dj & production duo Rub n Tug & also half of New York's 'Still Going'. but recently eric has been doing more as a solo artist/dj under the Dr Dunks moniker.
Hailing from Los Angeles Eric was exposed to all sorts of music but really gravitated toward the hip hop music & scene that was coming out of New York in the early to mid 80s, along with his moms record collection and a steady dose of Los Angeles radio, Eric's musical foundation was forged.
In the mid 90's Eric moved to new york and linked up with his partner in crime Thomas Bullock. They threw the late 20th century Rub n Tug disco after hours parties in various downtown manhattan lofts, turning on a new generation of revelers to the sleazy pleasures of disco and whatever else was in their record boxes. Dunks followed that up as the saturday night dj at the now defunct passerby gallery & bar, fueling hte party well into sunday mornings. be it slo-mo disco, incandescent funk, or banging house music, eric weaves it together into a nightlife soundtrack.
Over the past decade, as Dunks, or as part of Rub n Tug or Still Going, Eric has remixed everyone from Roxy Music to Zero 7, Lcd Soundsystem, Cold Play, Grace Jones, Chic Chic Chic and even The Beastie Boys, just to name a few.
Today Eric is still involved with Rub N Tug musically and artistically. Rub N Tug just curated a six week group show at the famous White Columns Gallery here in New York.(link)http://whitecolumns.org/view.html?type=exhibitions&status=past&id=635
Rub N Tug has also recently finished a remix for their Norwegian buddy Lindstrum.
With Still Going Eric & partner Liv Spencer have just formed 'Still Going Records' SGR has 2 releases out now.(link)http://www.juno.co.uk/artists/still+going/
Liv & Eric are keeping busy in the studio so expect more from SGR in the near & distant future.
And lastly but def not leastly. Eric has teamed up with Dean Merredith of Chicken Lips fame to create the project called 'The Rhythm Odyssey & Dr Dunks'.
They have 4 singles ready to be released on Golf Channel Recordings in 2012/2013.
