The Secret Handshake is Luis Dubac, and he’s kind of what would happen if Calvin Harris was American and felt a bit more emo. I’m not quite decided whether this is good or not but it’s certainly a bit interesting. His new single is called Summer of ’98 and it’s taken from the album One Full Year which came out in America last week. The vocoder on this track is quite grating, and I think it maybe works a bit better on “Midnight Movie” which you can hear on myspace.
Obviously, as with every American act that perks up our interest, they played in the UK in August and currently have no plans to return >:(.
