Eric Duncan aka Dr Dunks is one half of legendary DJ duo Rub-n-Tug & also half of DFA’s Still Going. Dunks releases his secret weapons on the Keep it Cheap label, but he’s also “involved” with Japan’s mysteriousdisco-edit “C.O.M.B.i..” imprint. No matter the name though, the game remains unchanged: peak time party provider. 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. All of which will be supplemented by even more releases on Keep It Cheap and C.O.M.B.i. Noice!- now it’s high time for London to get a dose of Dr. Dunks’s medicine
Supporting Dr Dunks downstairs in the newly refurbished DJ booth will be remixer/ & editor du jour Mr Reverso 68.., Pete Herbert and Discovery's Neil Thornton & Dave Rose.
Upstairs we have a selection of London’s finest party crews doing their thing over two rooms. In the main room a crew that have got London’s clubbing community in a tizzy with their intense parties – The Boogie Cartel, who will be delivering their signature sleazy disco and neon boogie sounds alongside good friend Curious People. Next door in the intimate Boudoir, party crew Ears Have Eyes will be providing the tunes under the infamous red light. As it's a special occasion, we've pulled out all the stops and ensured a bumper 6am license to keep the walls thumping until the sun comes up.
