Luis Alberto Dubuc Jr. (born January 28, 1984) is an American musician from Dallas, Texas. He was a member of The Secret Handshake[2][3] and Of Legends.[4] He is currently the man behind Mystery Skulls.[5]


Luis Dubuc started out as a drummer for the metal band Thirty Called Arson. Luis felt restrained by playing only music that was aggressive. After being a spectator at concert put on by Mouse On Mars, he purchased a Macintosh computer and experimented with electronic sounds. Dubus made his first album Antarctica using the moniker The Secret Handshake. The next year, after releasing This Is Bigger Than You And I, Dubuc began composing his next album. After writing all of the songs, Luis spent August 2006 recording the album in his friend's apartment. Since then, his album One Full Year was released through Triple Crown Records and has sold almost 18 000 copies.[3] After Dubuc finished touring in support of One Full Year, Dubuc came out with My Name Up In Lights in 2009 and Night & Day, a departure from his electronica music in favor of a Motown-influenced neo-soul sound, in 2010.

In 2011, Dubuc put The Secret Handshake to sleep and began to make music under the name Mystery Skulls.[6] In 2013, Mystery Skulls signed with Warner Bros. Records.[7] He is currently working on the Mystery Skulls debut album and collaborating with Nile Rodgers, Adam Lambert, and Avicii.[8]
