Zuke is a fresh 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 NZ DnB, where he won consecutive podium finishes at ‘Rumble in the Jungle’.
Scoring the primary opening slot for long-time badman producer Breakage mere months after the project began was not only an appropriate match but a testament to Zuccollo's quality of work.
In 2018, led by the jungle renaissance and a renewed interest in bass-heavy electronic music - the Zuke project was propelled into existence.
