Towkio is an integral and quickly rising member of Chicago’s rambunctious and diverse SAVEMONEY collective.
Easily recognized as the most outlandish one of an already eclectic group, which counts acts like Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa amongst its ranks, Towkio creates music that is at once sonically pleasing and foot-movingly up-tempo. His signature style is found within his music’s production: eclectic, unconventional and characterized by a hallucinatory, genre-blending sound that sits at the intersection of dance and hip-hop. By rapping over emotion-provoking production and layering his unique vocals on top of it all, Towkio’s sound is a progressive one that plays off the collective’s mission by creating yet another fresh take on rap within Chicago’s recent hip-hop renaissance. A veteran of the local music scene, Towkio has incubated his aesthetic in Chicago for some time and recently sold out Lincoln Hall with a live show that packs energy and bars into a fully-fledged performance that leaves fans new and old wanting more. He reached cultlike Soundcloud following with his 2015 mixtape .Wav Theory and has long-awaited debut LP on American Recordings expected Summer 2017.
