From her early beginnings at ICON Collective, to her timely coalescing with Dash Radio, Wenzday is a jack-of-all-trades. The multi-hyphenate cut her teeth on the sounds of the underground before catapulting into stardom herself.
Between hosting her own radio show every Wednesday on Dash Radio, to her work as a co-founder of the hit bass label 40oz Cult, there’s nothing Wenzday can’t do.
Now, she takes her talents to the renowned mau5trap label to debut “The One,” a raw anthem of post-heartbreak pain. Exploring motifs of sadness, confusion, and anger, she wears her heart on her sleeve in her latest, weaving a tale of love lost and moving on.
“The One” sees Wenzday singing for the first time ever on her own track, an experience the creative referred to as “cathartic” in the wake of her breakup. A truly perfect amalgamation of everything Wenzday,
“The One” is the wondrous intersection of the underground and mainstream, best characterized by its intricate melodies and rousing production.
“I wrote ‘The One’ originally as a poem after my breakup earlier this year. I never intended it to be a song or even be heard by anyone for that matter. I just needed to get how I was feeling on paper-the anger, the sadness, the confusion of how you can go one day being with a person you care about to all alone the next. One day I was in the studio and I wrote the musical part of the song as you hear it now and after trying for hours to make a sample or a top line work so I decided to sing my own words. This is the first time I have sung on my own track and the process was extremely cathartic. I am so excited for everyone to hear my own words in my own voice.” – Wenzday
Born and raised in the Bay Area, Taylor aka Wenzday uses her classically trained ear to bring a new sound to the electronic scene. After moving from the bay area to Los Angeles to commit to a full time music career, she attended and graduated from the prestigious recording academy ICON COLLECTIVE. It was here that she shifted from an open format DJ to full time producer.
Fusing both her knowledge in house music and bass music Wenzday has created a unique and different sound that has hit releases on Confessions, Dim Mak, IN/ROTATION, and Insomniac Records.
Her success has led to a hit weekly show on Dash Radio that airs weekly on Wednesdays and is also the co-founder of the hit bass label 40oz Cult.
The label has released over 100 records since its inception in 2016 and has had shows in Los Angeles, San Diego, Honolulu, and Austin.

Over a decade since its formation, the independent record label founded by groundbreaking electronic music producer deadmau5 has become a bastion for trailblazing and genre-defying artists.
