Introducing Zuke - a project from keyboardist and producer, Ed Zuccollo (Stretchfoot, Trinity Roots, Rhian Sheehan). The Zuke concept is an exploratory journey into the physicality of immense bass, aimed at confronting big systems head-on.
Zuccollo's electronic inspiration originates from DJing Drum’n’Bass during the early-to-mid 2000’s, when artists such as Dom & Roland, Digital & Spirit, Breakage, and Calibre were making a mark on the genre. In 2005 and 2006, his talent for selection earned him a premium seat in the archives of New Zealand DnB, where he won consecutive podium finishes at national DnB competition ‘Rumble in the Jungle’.
In April 2018, led by the jungle renaissance and a renewed interest in bass-heavy electronic music - the Zuke project was propelled into existence.
