After a short hiatus, SepTo, the Toronto based artist is back with the visual for his newest track "Miracle Man", produced by Junia-T, a Toronto staple. SepTo aims to tell the listener a story on this one with his smooth vocals, over some impressive production from 1/2 of Toronto's own "Chef's Plate". SepTo (the To is for Toronto), prefers not to be labeled a rapper. This is largely because of the fact that although he does rap, he also does much more. Sep's been known to write and post poems, articles, and even full essays, he is much more than simply a rapper, he is an artist. The visual for "Miracle Man", which was shot and edited by Northern Hussle, holds large amounts of religious imagery and clips that coincide with the story that Sep is telling his listeners. Sep's storytelling ability shines bright on this track, while Junia-T's catchy production only exemplifies the package. If you want to learn more about SepTo, check out his interview with The Come Up Show, and don't forget to check out his highly acclaimed album "Almost NevR" on iTunes, or at www.SepTo.ca.
Metaphorically, the album cover represents the death of a certain mentality, it's the moment you stop caring and stop trying to present a very specific perspective. Almost NevR in a positive way means it's we are almost manifested, we are almost tangible, but if you take the literal meaning, its this close to not existing, it's hanging by a thread. It's the conflict of, am I keep doing this? Is this rational? If you are listening to the album and you love it, keep in mind how close it is to never existing, that man in the cover hanging could have touched the world, and he is NevR going to give what he could have given you. SepToIt was an honour to have a conversation with SepTo live on The Come Up Show. His album Almost NevR is out for free download and his celebration is this Friday August 29th at live at the Ballet. Our interview started off by talking about the value of connecting with people on a human to human connection. SepTo expanded on his strategy to promote the album in retrospect and why this was the first time he made Almost NevR album without thinking of the next project. I asked him about the meaning of songs lyrics on Excursions, Dance Around my Brain, Last Night, Father and had him expand on his opinion pieces he wrote below.
An excerpt of SepTo's article on Social Media and Real Shit Today, with the help of social media, we have defined happiness and success in tangible items. You are only as accomplished as what you post. Your satisfaction with your life is determined by what you have allowed others to think of your life.
SepTo's article on Your Health and Corporate profit Approach the most available food with the most caution. The companies we are allowing the responsibility of providing us with our sustenance are not concerned with our health and are not here for any other mutual benefit than to have you willingly purchase their goods. My belly is full from McDonald’s and they obeyed the regulatory minimum amount of sawdust allowed in my burger. My can of CocaCola is exhilarating my taste buds and they have kept the amount of sugar within that can just short of an immediately lethal amount. Win/Win, right?Watch this and so much more in our hour long conversation with SepTo and come out to the show this Friday and download the album Almost NevR.
