Daniel Ebel, better known as Dendemann, is a German rapper from Menden. He is known for his rough voice and his witty, wordplay-filled lyrics in which he mostly tells stories from everyday life.
Dendemanns first success was with the crew Arme Ritter, who often functioned as support for Fettes Brot
and were featured on their album Außen Tophits, innen Geschmack
. Arme Ritter had previously released a single called "Disco '95" on Sony Music
, but to little avail. In the mid-90s, Dendemann and Thomas "Rabauke" Jensen, the tour DJ of Fettes Brot, founded the hip hop duo Eins Zwo
. At the same time, Dendemann was working with the former Arme Ritter artist Majubiese and his friend Nico Suave
, under the alias Mutter Natur.
In 2003, Eins Zwo disbanded and both Dendemann and Rabauke are pursuing their solo careers. In the same year, Dendemann release the EP "DasSchweigenDilemma", for which he produced the beats himself.
His current album Die Pfütze des Eisbergs was published on September 1, 2006, the instrumentals were produced by Jansen & Kowalski and the Audiotreats. The video to the single "3 1/2 Minuten" parodies music and video of D'Angelo's song "Untitled (How Does It Feel)" - Dendemann shaved his head and wore fake rubber muscles to imitate D'Angelo's looks and stature.
Currently, Dendemann tours Germany with his latest album, supported by the German DJ Suro, Danish DJs Static and Nat Ill and local artists depending on the site of the concert.
