Cypher with us.
Cypher League frequently hosts events in New York City’s venues and galleries. Our events are a celebration of urban culture, primarily showcasing hip-hop emcees and DJs while coupling our concerts with live art demonstrations and installations. Attendees are artistic, experience-driven individuals, aging from 18-30 years-old.
Though we specialize in the New York City event scene, we’ve held events at universities in the Northeast as well as Washington D.C., Boston and Chicago. Out of the 25+ events we’ve hosted in the last two years, we are particularly proud of two held recently. In April 2014 we hosted a six-artist line-up at the renowned SOB’s. In August 2014 Cypher League hosted the inaugural Brooklyn Renaissance Festival. The Festival, sponsored by Vitaminwater among others, boasted over 25 musical and artistic acts and attracted 800 people. The first festival was covered online by a variety of websites (including CMJ), and we intend for BRF 2015 to be even more impactful.
Our offices boast a professional-grade recording studio where Cypher League’s compilation album [releasing Winter ‘14] and Nicholas Hunt’s EP were created. The studio allows us to better facilitate musical collaboration in New York’s hip-hop scene.
