about

The debut release from Airo Kwil maintains the rapper's taste for satire and severity, drawing on topics ranging from socioeconomics to twerking zombies. 'Dark Cinema (A Study In Paradox)' also deals with Airo’s inner world, and the joys and tragedies that pattern human life. This is a record diced with both melodic swells and relentless rapping over banging beats.


"(Airo) raps in a dense splatter of tangled metaphors, pop culture references and raw emotion. He’s a showy rapper, but even his most elaborate wordplay usually takes a backseat to his percussive delivery, which reflects his instincts as a drummer." - Shepherd Express Milwaukee

"Rose’s unique merger of his two drastically different auditory identities bolsters Dark Cinema, while setting Airo Kwil apart from the vast majority of his Milwaukee hip-hop contemporaries." - Milwaukee Record

about

Airo Kwil Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Post-rock drummer turned rapper Airo Kwil (Will Rose) makes beats with percussionist instincts and wields language with tried precision.

At times both experimental and straight forward, his songs pulse intensity and technicality.

His high-energy stage show will offer an inimitable experience, one you'll doubtlessly marinate on some time.

This is Airo Kwil.
