Mystery Skulls is an electronic dance-oriented neo-soul and vintage disco-influenced outfit centered around lead singer/songwriter Luis Dubuc. Dubuc was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela until he was eight, when his family moved to Toronto, where he fell in love with dance music as well as hip-hop and metal. After moving to Dallas, he played drums for the metal band Thirty Called Arson and formed the electronic pop project the Secret Handshake, whose 2009 album, My Name Up in Lights, reached number seven on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. In 2011, Dubuc ended the Secret Handshake to focus on the more dance-oriented Mystery Skulls, which took its name from an episode of the Nickelodeon series Are You Afraid of the Dark? That year, Dubuc moved to Los Angeles and released Mystery Skulls’ self-titled debut EP, which featured the single “Amazing,” after which he signed to Warner Bros. in 2013 and collaborated with Chic’s Nile Rodgers on the project’s debut album, Forever, which was released in 2014. Dubuc returned in 2017 with the single “Music,” the first taste from his sophomore full-length, One of Us.
