Since 1997, as an “Old school MC meets electro producer/dj” duo The Cauldron Project has been laying down some of Eastern Canada’s loudest electronically infused hip hop, delivering it to their fans through an energetic and often unpredictable live set.
Recently named the official live band of the Atlantic Canadian Amateur Mixed Martial Arts Association they have been opening shows and providing half time entertainment to thousands of MMA fans across the Maritimes.
With booking going well into 2013 combined with MMA events, the release of two music videos and a fourth album on the way The Cauldron Project are one of Eastern Canada’s hardest working electronic / hip hop acts
With Randy Goldrup’s (Stogy-1) often humorous and occasionally self deprecating lyrical style combined with Denis Guitard’s (dj godkorg) over the top synth work they have developed an act that is somewhat unique for a hip-hop duo. This is accomplished in part by the delivery of beats via synthesizers and samplers, sequenced and played back live in a way that is more akin to electronic acts such as Orbital, The Prodigy and The Crystal Method. This introduces an element of unpredictability on stage that has become a key element of their live set and something their fans look forward to. Actively defying classification, they have worked with artists from various genres of music often joining them on stage for part of their sets and featuring them on their recordings. The Cauldron Project have carved a place for themselves and have been well received on Moncton’s live scene as they can often be seen playing along side not only hip hop but also punk, funk and metal acts.
The Cauldron Project is nominated for two 2013 Prix MNB Awards: Electronic or Urban Recording for their single Fire Pit featuring Wartime, and for Video/DVD of the Year for their song People Splode (directed by Christopher Simpson).
Do not miss their showcase on Friday, October 18 at Pepper’s Pub after 11 PM.
