Ghostface Killah is critically acclaimed for his loud, fast-paced flow, and his emotional stream-of-consciousness narratives containing cryptic slang and non-sequiturs. In 2006, MTV included him on their honorable mention list of The Greatest MCs of All Time, while the editors of About.com placed him on their list of the Top 50 MCs of Our Time (1987–2007), praising him as “one of the most imaginative storytellers of our time.” Ghostface’s storytelling abilities have widely been praised, with Q magazine calling him “rap’s finest storyteller.

August saw a return to form with Beat Cypher 11 playing host to the talents of S-TYPE, JAISU, JON PHONICS, MR FIGZ and MUNESHINE all the way from Toronto Canda, beats were banging and there were vibes aplenty! Check the exclusive Round One (http://tinyurl.com/cypher11) and jokes/outtakes (http://vimeo.com/14589942) from Louis Den’s own Ab0181.

Back again for whats going to be the last Louis Den (BEAT CYPHER) of this year!, shed a tear!! This season has gone quick!, they’ll be some goodness coming your way in Winter but it’ll be a little different from what your used to, but rather than wishing away the rest of 2010 heres whats in store for our next joint!.

ON THE BOARDS

PETE CANNON – Back for the second time round, he did the first ever cipher back in October 2008 under the name MR DICK (which now just strictly raps); new name change; new grind since then he’s laid down beats for TORAE, SWAY, MILLION DAN, DR SYNTAX, STIG OF THE DUMP and more! another go at the cypher will really let him show heads where he’s at!
http://petecannon.bandcamp.com/

GIFTED MUSIC – A very talented and humble cat; we first met Gifted at the December Beat Cypher last year, since then he’s always shown love reppin with the open beats and playing plenty of bangers, Gifted has quite the resume having worked with WRETCH32, GIGGS, YOUNG MONEY and frequent collabs with SO SOLID CREW including the brand new comeback single for rapper SWISS, he’ll have some fresh sounds no doubt.
“search facebook for ‘gifted music’

ED STRONG of the mighty IRS CREW, Ed has been Louis Den fam since we started our online battles back in 2007; a longtime coming Ed is reaching this cypher to play some gems out of the catalogue, production highlights include the bulk of the IRS releases, SONNYJIM, SKANDAL and more!
http://theirs.bandcamp.com/

MAZZIE – King of the “busted beat cd’s” for the open beats; Mazzie (originally from Devon but now in Manchester) has been down with the fam for long time, bit of a sleeping giant as he’s never in the forefront with his beats but has always been keepin up with the big boys!! nows his chance to show you whats poppin, production credits include UK’s Truth and P.SO (formerly P.Casso) outta New York.
http://mazzie.bandcamp.com/

ON THE MIC

Stig Of The Dump, x2 World EOW champ, Battle Vet and drinker!!, You may know Stig from his infamous Jump Off battles, you may know him from his x2 EOW world titles, or you may have read his rantings in various magazines, at the core of this though is one of the countries top tier emcees!! Stig’s debut album “Mood Swings” drops 11th October and he’ll be blessing Birmingham give a sneak peek at some of his new material collaborator Pete Cannon (he produced 5 joints on there) is also in the building so expect fun!, Stig will be backed by Brighton vet and Dont Flop battler Enlish.
http://www.stigandsyntax.com/

THE I.R.S, On the verge of dropping their sophmore album “Speaks Volumes” and staedily leaking their free “Offcuts” LP the gang of strong rhymers will be performing (with their producer/mc Ed Strong taking the produciton line up), Indie group of the year winners for 2008 and larger than life mic characters Ed Strong, King Kaiow, Superb and DV will be in the building laying down some South London funk.
http://theirs.bandcamp.com/

SONNYJIM & Kelakovski, these two have been busy cooking up an EP of treats that’ll surface in the near future on Eat Good Records, both are keen to let the cypher hear some of the new material so seperate to the other performers they’ll be previewing some new bits for the beat cypher crowd (no Kelz isnt rapping!)
http://eatgoodrecords.com/

Finally, as usual we’ll have our very own DJ CRO providing the backdrop of hip-hop beats, breaks and treats inbetween the nights action.

*ARRIVE EARLY TO SIGN UP FOR OPEN BEATS, ONLY 3 BEATS MAX PER PRODUCER AND WE MAY HAVE TO REDUCE THAT NUMBER IF THERES A HUGE AMOUNT OF SIGN UPS (prefence is given to newer names)

* NO MP3 PLAYERS/PHONES/ DATA CD’s FOR OPEN BEATS, sorry but its an ache to get all this sorted and the cables/pc’s are for the showcased producers only…bring an audio CD or most likely its not happening!!.

* THERE IS NO GUESTLIST AT THE BEAT CYPHER, please don’t try it and blag it…respect the cypher and the other heads paying, the more heads supporting the more chance of us being able to keep the movement going, please dont be shy and dig in them pockets!.
