Taiyamo Denku is back for 2013 with a brand new video for his single, Pitfall. The track is from his upcoming Uncommon release titled, Radio-Octave. Radio-Octave will feature a large chunk of production by Nasa along with well respected producers Ayatollah and Domingo among others. This release will include appearances by legends like KRS-One and Kool G. Rap to name a few, look for it later this year. You can also hear Taiyamo Denku on our most recent release, Uncommon Burners 2, available now!
Pitfall was produced by the Grime Lab and the video was directed by 50 Hungry Lions. Shot at the Miramar Theatre in Milwaukee, it features Taiyamo Denku behind the piano for some virtuoso performances while being heckled and cheered by a clone army. Don't miss it!
