Meet Dameon “Ziggy” Daniels, Antonio Ramsey, Lawrence “LB” Breaux and Larry “HOPP” Dorn

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dameon “Ziggy” Daniels, Antonio Ramsey, Lawrence “LB” Breaux and Larry “HOPP” Dorn.

Dameon “Ziggy”, Antonio, Lawrence “LB” and Larry “HOPP”, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Social Cypher was created by “Four Brothers’ with a vision from God to fill a much needed gap in the music industry. The vision was to create a platform that would not only be a voice for emerging artists but also position other emerging artists to use their own voice.

The reality is that many artists may not get signed to a record deal, be played on radio or even be featured in a major publication. Social Cypher was designed to be a place to highlight those artists, make new families, share fans and more importantly tell their stories. The actual cypher is just the icing on the cake because artists get to pull from each other and show the world their amazing talents! As positive and excited as we are about Social Cypher it has come with its challenges but we have done a good job at trusting the process.

We all have stories and it was important to Social Cypher to share those stories in hopes that the next generation is inspired to spread their light. Depression is a huge thing in the industry because the fact is people feel like they are alone but so many people have overcome those things and want to encourage others to do the same.

Social Cypher Mission: to advance the culture in music that support the success and cross promotion of artist and brands through social platforms #SocialCypher.

Social Cypher Vision: we believe that music artists and brands should have support with access to quality tech & social platforms that maximize brand awareness and digital influence.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Social Cypher has gone through so many ups and downs over the past two years including ending personal relationships, unproductive partnerships and not to mention a hard drive being stolen with 4-5 episodes of footage. The crazy thing is we started this thing in 2017 and were scheduled to launch a year ago however we just weren’t ready and really realized that as we started to grow the brand more. Name a challenge and we would collectively agree we’ve come across it, however we made a decision that nothing would stop our vision. We’ve just learned how to always be transparent amongst the team and adjust to whatever comes our way. The biggest challenge was getting adjusted to each other’s different styles of work, especially when you get a group of creatives and business people together. It’s still an on-going process but our team is so amazing and have really stepped up and committed to the Social Cypher brand. We couldn’t be more thankful and appreciative of our team and guests that have supported so far.

Social Cypher – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Social Cypher is the brand and we have entities that fall under the brand for example we have our core program “The Social Cypher Show” which birthed everything else.

The SocialCypher Show is an interactive HipHop & RnB platform featuring the most influential artist in the socialsphere! This cypher is like no other with its unique and special content designed to showcase the hottest artist, producers and brands! Hosted by 2 of our creators hip hop lyricist “HOPP” and RnB vocalist Mr. FunkTrap “Antonio Ramsey” the pair will entertain and take you on an experience into Generation Next.

The SocialCypher Podcast produced by PowerhartFilms and hosted by all four creators is a non-scripted approach to Past, Present and Future Happenings… Informative, Inspiring and Entertainment for your listening and viewing pleasure! #WeAreSocialCypher

Social Cypher presents #WhatIsFuzion a monthly state to state traveling concert series – A Hip Hop & RnB infused musical showcase experience merging the hottest hits and hottest artists and DJ’s all under one roof.

We thought the thing that would set us apart would be how we grow and engage different audiences through one Brand from 3 different strategies that support the Mission & Vision!

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success to us is meeting our goals and seeing exponential growth across our platforms. We aim and aspire to stand out amongst the crowd by providing a safe unique platform for every guest that comes through Social Cypher.

We have created a family and uplifting atmosphere so when people leave us feeling inspired and charged it shows us we are going in the right direction.

Our ultimate end goal is to partner with a mainstream entity without compromising our mission and integrity that can ultimately expand our reach and vision.
