Announcing the Winter 2016 NatCave Studio Cypher!

It’s Going Down!

On Saturday, January 16th, 2016 at 9:00 PM, The NatCave Studio is hosting an exclusive hip-hop studio cypher. Be there and bring your best 16-bar verse.

The studio cypher is different from a live cypher. Each artist takes turns performing their verse in the booth. Our chief engineer Nathanial Foreman will record your vocals. You’ll have 10 minutes to record your verse and any adlibs. Once everyone performs we will playback the entire collaborative performance. After the event, Nathanial will mix the cypher within a few days and upload the final mix to the NatCave Studio Soundcloud page.

During the cypher, everyone is welcome to take pictures and record video. Enjoy some refreshments and network with other artists.

This time around, we want YOU to choose the instrumental!

Vote for which instrumentals you’d like use. We will announce the winning instrumental with the most votes on Monday, January 11th, 2016. This will give you 5 days to write and rehearse your 16 bar verse


You! Or, more specifically, any artist affiliated with The NatCave Studio. In other words, this event is open to artists who’ve had a session with us or artists coming with another artist who has had a session with us. Rappers, singers, spoken word artists and musicians are welcome.


At the studio cypher, you will have 10 minutes in the booth to spit your best 16-bar verse. You can write your verse in advance or freestyle, just remember to keep your performance at 16 bars.
