A hip hop renaissance man of sorts, Taiyamo Denku can dodge in and out of the varied disciplines of emceeing with the greatest of ease. The Milwaukee-based lyricist is just as much at home exploring concepts as he is spinning tales and linguistically killing tracks. His prowess in freestyle battles is well documented, but ultimately, it’s all about being prolific with the art for Taiyamo Denku.
With three full solo LPs, several albums with his group W.A.S.T.E.L.A.N.D.S. and countless cameos with other artists, Taiyamo Denku’s discography is as diverse as his subjects and stories. He’s worked with a lengthy list of hip hop’s lyrical masters—Chino XL, Prince Po, Keith Murray and Sabac Red, just to name a few. And he’s ripped over beats made by some of the top producers in the game, including Ayatollah, Nasa, Dub L and DJ Vadim.
Taiyamo Denku's articulation and ideas are designed to make you think, and he really doesn’t want it any other way. On deck for Denku is a new full-length release called "Quadrofiendia", produced by Agartha Audio and featuring Sadat X, Craig G, Masai Bey, L.I.F.E. Long, Atari Blitzkrieg, Teddy Faley and Shyheim the Rugged Child, among others. As always, Denku will be creating lyrical puzzles and challenging listeners to solve them inside headphones.
