ZUKE (Beats & Bass)

Introducing New Zealand based keyboardist and producer, Ed Zuccollo. Ed is the keys player for Trinity Roots, Flite, and Tyson Smith, and has done session recording for artists from Thomas Oliver to Mel Parsons, and Electric Wire Hustle to Hollie Smith. His range and knowledge of vintage and classic keyboard instruments, synthesisers and effects make him versatile and unique in the performance and session recording industry.
As well as performing in bands and as a solo act, Zuccollo designed and teaches the Introduction to Electronic Music Production at Rata Studios in Wellington, NZ. He has also taken various workshops and masterclasses, educating on performing live and as a session player, as well as presentations on the history, design and sound of the classic Minimoog synthesizer.
In his solo show, you’ll be taken on a dynamic journey from energetic synth beats to lush ambient soundscapes, to thick funky grooves, and even the odd rap - in which you may be asked for assistance. Ed has a relaxed and charming demeanour, interspersing entertaining chat throughout the set, while his skill on the 70s Minimoog synthesizer always impresses crowds. He uses a sampler to bring you the music he has crafted in his studio, a variety of vintage keyboards, and a talkbox.
“Ed Zuccollo is, in my honest opinion, one of the true masters of analogue synthesis. Not only is he technically astounding, his musicality and musical signature is second to none. When you’ve had a trip to ‘Planet Ed’ you will never want to leave!”�— Adam Page
“... his insane musicality and intuitive understanding of synthesizers is nothing short of astonishing.”�— Rhian Sheehan
“Ed is incredibly sensitive to musical synergy ... has a great ear for many genres of music [and an] insatiable quest for sonic quality”�— Warren Maxwell (Trinity Roots, Little Bushman)

Cronisophical (Drum n Bass, Jungle - Vinyl set)

Aka Cronix b2b Inphiltrate. Talking shit, drinking beer, listening to Drum n Bass is their moto. After meeting in 2015 the brotherhood formed fast and strong. Often found at the end of the night smoking a shish not being able to talk.
