Syd Nukuluk is a producer, songwriter and artist based in South London.
Syd explores what it is to be a songwriter in a digital, image based age - playing with and re-contextualising tropes from lost genres of popular music, dipping them into experimental textures. He creates a broad spectrum of sonic melancholia, drawing inspiration from 90s UK trip-hop, post-punk and ambient music, as well as the resurgent art-pop sound of the late 2010s. Heavily influenced by an upbringing around punk, dub and alternative, Syd spent many years making songs in different rock group formats, before finding his own pace inbetween the studio and the stage, .
Syd stumbled across Slowfoot Records after attending a Monkey Puzzle Trio gig in 2017; after listening to more of the catalogue he was left with no choice but to approach label boss Frank Byng [This Is Not This Heat, Snorkel], and since then they have worked together, on label affairs and in Snorkel Studios, the label’s base where much of Data X Change, Syd's debut release, was recorded.
Debut EP Data X Change was released on limited edition cassette and all digital platforms on 24th January 2020. Since then, Syd and frequent collaborator Monika have formed the collective 'NUKULUK', who will be releasing their debut EP in Winter 2021.
