What started out as the brainchild of Milwaukee emcee Taiyamo Denku and Australian producer Dcypha, the Cypha Den Music imprint has been experiencing a snowballing effect. With strong core beliefs embedded within a nineties Hip Hop theme, the movement has a long list of collab efforts, albums and one-off singles. CDM has also enlisted a solid line up of emcees such as Maximus Da Mantis, Rambunxious and Urban Legend, all of which are hellbent on keeping Hip Hop alive and breathing, bar by bar.
We first caught a glimpse of the crew on “FWYH” from Denku’s “If I Did An Album With Nick Wiz”. The song won the hearts and ears of fans and has also been added to their performance set list. Word even has it that they plan on shooting an accompanying video to it in the near future.

Their follow up song, “Gutter Noise”, was well received among music blogs and listeners alike. It featured Taiyamo, Rambunxious, Urban Legend and crew affiliate, L. Majestic. Produced by Dcypha, the song was encapsulated in grittiness with an anthem based hook provided by Denku.

For their most recent body of work, CDM looks towards Queensbridge alum Big Twins for “Where We Live”. The song speaks about urban living plights and again features a Dcypha instrumental. The video was brought to life by St. Pennz, edited by Empne and was shot on location in Milwaukee & New York. Another solid release from the squad, get familiar to Cypha Den Music by watching “Where We Live” below.
