A n a k is the second full-length from Los Angeles-based underground, ambient beat producer Chad Valencia, aka yuk, a founding member of My Hollow Drum DJ collective.

Valencia is also co-founder and head chef of rising Filipino pop-up restaurant Lasa. (See: “New wave of gives Filipino food a modern spin” – LA Weekly.)

After many years of keeping his passion for culinary arts separate from his personal musical output, a n a k represents a fusion of the two as cultural movements that share the same inspiration.

This is yuk’s second full-length album, following a d w a, released by Leaving Records in 2010.
