Urban Science is the 7-piece live band that hosts the #LeCypher Thursday night hip-hop & soul party. Featuring some of the city’s most sought-after musicians, they have performed and/or recorded with such artists as Talib Kweli, Nelly, KRS-One, Illa J, Snarky Puppy, Erik Truffaz, Bran Van 3000, and Imhothep (IAM). Notable achievements amongst its members are 2016 world champion of End of the Weak, 6-time King of the Dot champion, an appearance on the Tonight Show, artist sponsorships from Soultone Cymbals, Dream Cymbals, and numerous studio recordings, including Mac Miller’s “Dang!” (#2 on the Billboard 200). Urban Science #LeCypher has held down residencies at the Montreal Jazz Festival’s after-hours party series every single year since 2015, and was the regular house band for the Rap Battles for Social Justice until 2018.
In 2018, URBN SCNC XL, an expanded version of Urban Science, produced an historic show called “RapKeb Allstarz”, backing the top francophone Québécois rap artists for the closing of the 30th edition of the Francofolies.
Off-shoot project Urban Science Brass Band has hosted the MTL Hip-Hop Parade since 2016 and also held down Jazz Festival residencies since 2017.
