The currently LA-residing crossover front man, Luis Dubac aka Mystery Skulls, seems to be on the right path since his departure from his former project The Secret Handshake. The 20-something singer/songwriter/instrumentalist/producer dabbles in just about every aspect of the band's success, helping foster comparisons to dance music's most influential crossover act, Skrillex. Following Sonny's journey from heavy metal to electro, Dubac, who also had a metal project called Of Legends, landed a record deal with Warner Brothers last year and has yet to look back.
Coming off his first major tour, Dubac is back to the studio to put the finishing touches on his debut LP. With no set release date, nor a title, the album is still currently under wraps, but the Mystery Skulls lead revealed the first single "Ghost" earlier this month. The track, starts off subtly, bubbling up with Dubuc's poppy vocals before meeting grinding bass kicks and cascading synths. Melding the sounds of electro with the soul of his voice, Mystery Skulls creates dark disco-drenched production with this lead single.
"Ghost" which is set to have an entire remix EP, receives its first official rework from Fred Falke. Toning down the bassline on his rendition, Faulke transforms the tune into an eerier version of the original. Captivating crowds with Dubac's soul, Faulke gives "Ghost" more ooph to boost Mystery Skulls experimental sound into the mainstream.
