Eric Duncan aka Dr.Dunks
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.
Label and home to degenerates, Public Release Recordings was kicked off by Eug in the early 2000’s, but was more formally introduced as an independent record label in 2009.
Since then, the label has released and supported artists such as Woolfy, Mike Simonetti, Tim Sweeney, Jacques Renault, Eric Duncan, Mark E and several other notable accomplices.
Focussing on quality rather than quantity, the label releases under no particular cadence and works in a completely organic approach. Public Release has garnered a loyal following globally, with many of their releases remaining highly desirable and collected. 2017 has so far seen the releases of Phil Gerus and Earth Boys 12"s.
When Solar began Djing in the early 90's, San Francisco's Clubs and Raves were places where musically, anything could happen. To be a DJ in this time and place meant having a fierce dedication to the craft of creating electrifying music for people to dance all night. A deep record collection and bold creativity were what people valued in the Djs they would go hear every weekend.
In 1994, Solar and a couple other Djs began bringing a sound system and a generator to the Berkeley Marina for free gatherings to dance and watch the sun set behind the San Francisco skyline. As these Sunset parties grew from dozens to hundreds, and now thousands of attendees, Solar become one San Francisco's best loved DJs. Known for his eclectic sets, blending Techno, Disco, House, Electro and electronic music with the energy of Punk and Psychedelic Rock, Solar has built a loyal following among a discerning crowd of dancers and party goers used to hearing every touring DJ you've ever heard of. Nearly twenty years of playing music for crowds large and small has evolved a style of Djing that seamlessly fuses the best of classic and modern dance music. More recently as resident and co-creator of the No Way Back parties, Solar has earned the reputation of a DJ devoted to the art of mixing and selecting music without regard to ephemeral fashion, trends or fads.
Anthony Mansfield has been on a 20-year journey through the world of
psychedelic dance music ever since attending the now-legendary full moon massives of
San Francisco’ s Wicked Crew in the early 90’ s. Anthony spent the rest of the decade
in New York, spreading the gospel of deep house across the Empire State with a late-
night radio show, his 8-year-running weekly, and the countless underground parties
that gave birth to his own crew, HectorWorks Soundsystem. After an exhausting and
debaucherous 2-year run as GM, talent booker, and resident DJ at upstate’ s largest live
music venue, The Odyssey, Anthony was ready to return to San Francisco.
Anthony hit the West Coast running in 2002, joining his old friend DJ M3 as
resident DJ and co-promoter of the infamous Green Gorilla Lounge in a string of
successful weekly club nights, true seat-of-your-pants underground parties, and blown-
out monthly events across the Bay Area, with some of the city’ s and world’ s best names
in dance music. Anthony has left his mark on Burning Man for the last decade as well,
at the Space Lounge, Green Gorilla, and Disco Knights sound camps, with a trail of
exhausted dancers and party people in the wake of his many epic sets on the playa.
Anthony has been producing his own particular brand of dance music since his
first release on Rong Records in ’ 04 with Ben Cook as “ Barfly” . Quickly moving to
found his own label, Hector Works, in 2005 with NYC deep-house production wizard
Nick Chacona, Anthony has worked with Garth, Tal M. Klein, Sneak-E Pete, M3, and
others in the last five years, releasing tracks on Gomma, Moodmusic, Aniligital , and
Om Records. His tunes have received nods (and plays) from some of the world’ s top
DJs, including Dimitri from Paris, Harvey, Greg Wilson, Doc Martin, Idjut Boys, Ivan
Smaggle, and Playgroup. Camped out in his room at Moulton Studios, Anthony is
currently hard at work on the 16th release for Hector Works, and looking forward to
taking a break for the Treasure Island Music Festival!
