Zuko Valencia revives the house at Funky Buddha on Saturday, June 9
Zuko Valencia (also known as Zuko or Zuk) is a musical jack-of-all-trades — and that's true even when compared to his peers, many of whom are classically trained instrumentalists and producers as well as set-spinners. His influences range from jazz to spoken word (he's performed with Miles's son Greg Davis) to world music, even dabbling in sound healing, and he's known to spin and create tracks that range from downtempo to deep house to techno to fusion. What ties his work together is a deep and abiding soulfulness, which he pairs with layers of beautiful, expansive noise. He's sure to cook up something special when he spins in the round at this month's House Revival residency at the Funky Buddha, trading turns at the tables with Brett Starr and Khalib on Saturday, June 9.
