I am a music producer and resident engineer at GreenHouse Recording Studios in Lyndhurst, NJ. My production style & sound is inspired by R&B, Soul, Hip-Hop, Reggaeton & Trap
A Peruvian immigrant hailing from North Jersey, Traudi “Kunza” Lacunza’s production style & sound is inspired by R&B, Soul, Latin Music, and numerous other genres. With his unique ear and deep passion for music from an early age, a certified knowledge in audio engineering, and countless studio sessions under his belt, he created Nu Ark Palace.
Nu Ark Palace is ultimately a place he constructed, a palace in his mind. It is a place where all his ideas and creations live — an entire world where hopes & aspirations live without limitations.
Lacunza has had the privilege to work in sessions with the likes of Lil Kim, Uncle Murda, Griselda, Flipp Dinero, Rich The Kid, Smoke DZA, Lougotcash and many more up and coming artists.

I’ve worked with Traudi for the past two years now and I’ve really got to see him grow as an engineer and producer. He’s never afraid to make suggestions for a another take and that’s what makes the product come out better. Looking forward to booking another session with him to finish my project.
Absolutely loved working with Traudi! He was very open and receiving and was willing to revise until I got the sound I was looking for. Thank you Traudi for just getting it right! Will work again soon
