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 bags. Dunks followed that up as the Saturday night DJ at the now defunct Passerby gallery & bar, fueling the party well into sunday mornings. Be it slo-mo disco, incandescent funk, techno 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 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
