Still Going

Still Going are Dj,s and producers Liv Spencer and Eric Duncan. Liv and Eric met many years ago at the now infamous Rui's Loft in lower Manhattan... where Eric spun now-legendary sweaty late night parties as one half of the New York DJ duo Rub-N-Tug. In the time since, Eric’s Rub N Tug project began to take off, DJ’ing around the world, releasing mix CD’s on Eskimo, Fabric and aNYthing Records and remixes for LCD Soundsystem, Coldplay, Roxy Music and the Beastie Boys.

Liv also was DJ’ing extensively, and he released singles and remixes under several aliases on labels such as Whatever We Want Records (as one half of House Of House), Kitsune, Rong Music, Poker Flat and Ibadan. He also began to engineer and provide additional programing on numerous Rub'n'Tug releases and remixes, further cementing the relationship.

It was only natural that Dunks and Liv would begin working more closely together. This came about on the “How & Why” single for Rong Music. From there, the two produced the blissful ‘Still Going Theme’. On the night it was mixed down, James Murphy was spinning at the DFA Records Holiday Party of 2006 near by. James liked the mix so much he played it right away to a roomful of rabid disco fans who cheered for it on the spot. Eric & Liv, headed back to the studio soon after to record the flipside for the future DFA release... the equally anthemic ‘On And On’

Even before its commercial release, ‘Still Going Theme’ was featured in Prins Thomas’s Essential Mix for the BBC’s Radio 1. The song has also been included on James Murphy and Pat Mahoney’s (LCD Soundsystem) Fabric Live mix. "On And On" is feautured on the new Force Of Nature mix on Mule Musiq.

With the release of their new record "Spaghetti Circus" on DFA which is a feel-good dancefloor monster playing all the right notes to appeal to a broader audience Still Going have went from strength to strength. It is the perfect end of the night song that heightens all kind of love feelings. The disco element is positively provided by Reggie Watts’ raging vocals telling us about how good everything is going to be tonight and the heightened good feelings present on the dancefloor.
