RA.172 Still Going

Resident Advisor
RA.172 Still Going


The NYC duo throw down some groovy melodic house for this week's RA podcast.


Olivier Spencer and Eric Duncan are two guys with some serious disco credentials. As part of the Rub N Tug duo with Thomas Bullock, Duncan has been at the forefront of the current disco revival ever since their rowdy looped up version of Chicago Transit Authority's "I'm a Man" appeared on Rong Music, with remixes of Out Hud, LCD Soundsystem, Sly Mongoose and Roxy Music becoming dance floor staples in sets of more discerning disco and house DJs. Both Spencer and Duncan are part of edit supergroup How & Why alongside Rong co-founder Jason Drummond (AKA DJ Spun), and as one part of House Of House, Liv is responsible for the end of the night disco-house bomb "Rushing To Paradise."

As Still Going, it's been a long two years since the duo kicked off their production project with the memorably anthemic piano-house grooves of "Still Going Theme," but they've finally managed to follow it up. "Spaghetti Circus," which opens their RA podcast, is a totally different beast, with the outlandishly rousing voice of comedian/musician Reggie Watts riding atop the track's duelling guitars and galloping beat. London residents digging their RA podcast will be no doubt glad to know that the pair will be making their UK debut for Warm at Plastic People this Friday. We spoke to Liv and Eric about the mix, house music in New York and the "difficult second single."
