A Rub and A Tug

The infamous DJ duo Rub-N-Tug hailing from New York are set to release their new LP

American producers Thomas Bullock and Eric Duncan aka Rub N Tug have graced the DJ booths everywhere from London's Fabric to loft parties in New York. With their distinct blends of their own disco edits, homo-house to electro, they're famous for throwing parties as seedy as their name. Their own reworks include dancefloor classics such as their disco-tastic remix of Sly Mongoose' 'Snakes and Ladder',  'Crackhousewarmingparty', and have remixed people from the likes of Beastie Boys, Capracara and LCD Soundsystem, with some of such releases on Japan's Mule Musiq (Kompakt) and Eskimo Recordings who also release Aeroplane.

Having started out with making a mix CD for the aNYthing clothing company, they soon were invited to make an eclectic mix featuring Royksopp, Ame, and Claude Vonstroke for the highly-respected Fabric compilation series back in the day. Dazed fire a few questions for one half of the duo, Bullock, who's been working alone on remixes for Mountain of One, House of House, and Bat for Lashes' 'Sleep Alone'.
