Featured performers:

Babylon Warchild -

Babylon Warchild is a 3-member, organic, live-hiphop band from downtown Toronto. The group is comprised of three unique artists, from diverse backgrounds, brought together through their shared respect and love for hiphop music. Each member brings something different to the table. UNKNOWN MIZERY, emcee, is well known in the Toronto hiphop scene for speaking out about social change and against the oppression of all people. LEGITIMATE, emcee, is a diversely talented emcee/producer known for bone-crushing machine-gun mic presence and a conscious, thought provoking lyricism reminiscent of the 90's golden era. RUMPLESTILTZ, hiphop cello player/producer, brings a brand new sound to any hiphop show, by playing a live string instrument on stage. Using looping pedals, effects, and the help of a DJ, Rumplestiltz can create complex hiphop beats on the fly.

Babylon Warchild's debut album, self titled, is available on iTunes

Hip Hop culture manifests through the creative self-expression of individuals who embody its spirit in their respective art forms. This power of spontaneous creativity, the unification of a community for the great purpose that is Hip Hop, happens at The Cypher.

Artists sign up to take part in group performances called cyphers, in which each performer takes a few minutes on the mic and then passes it on to the next performer. All performances occur over music supplied by a live DJ, beat boxer, or producer. There are also a few spots at The Cypher reserved for featured artists to perform their own sets.

The Cypher is a grassroots hip hop event started by MC FÜBB, DJ Combo and the Hip Hop Headz (H3) community in downtown Toronto in the summer of 2009. The Cypher is an event where hip hop MCs, DJs, producers, and other artists from around the world come to meet and showcase their talents and skills, and gives them an opportunity to network and create business opportunities. The Cypher is an event designed to keep alive the spirit of spontaneous creativity and showmanship that can occur only in hip hop. The Cypher is an opportunity for various members of the hip hop community to perform, network, build community and have fun.
