"Concepteur Etoiles is essentially my tunnel vision perspective on life. I have never allowed any obstacles to obstruct the path to my dreams, no matter the size or significance. I am still here. I am still going. No matter how dark, I always manage to find the light. AuRA.” ~` SeT just released a new video for his single, Concepteur Etoiles, which appeared on his debut LP, AuRA. The record is produced by fellow SmashMouth artist Tay Lewis and the visuals were directed by Kostadin Kolev. "Concepteur Etolies" finds SeT spitting some fierce, audio distorted bars on the block over a lucid instrumental that has just the right amount of knock. Pulled from a project full of bangers, SeT selected one of our favorite cuts for his latest presentation. AuRA was released June 2014 to great reception, and this latest release marks the end of the AuRA campaign. SeT is currently recording a collaborative EP with his younger brother, Tray. Be sure to check out this last installment from the AuRA era, and be on the look out for new music coming soon!
SeT hits the city "Baussin" featuring Tray, in his latest visuals off AuRA directed by Trevor Harris. Produced by AJ Cooper, this banger is one that has you wanting to hit the strip in the whip, "Baussin" round the city. Get caught up on SeT's latest after and check out "More Than This" featuring AJ Cooper.
SeT takes us back to the jiggy 90's era as he channels his inner Notorious B.I.G for the latest release off of his debut LP, AuRA. "More Than This" finds SeT and AJ Cooper living that "Can't Stop, Won't Stop" lifestyle as they ball out in a luxurious mansion. with furs, gold and flat screens everywhere, the mo' money mo' problems conflict isnt the case for SeT and AJ. Be sure to check this latest video out, and go back to peep the Aura EP if you haven't done so already.
One of my favorite tunes off AuRA just got some visuals. SeT teams up with Haviah Mighty for "Until Then", a song that can be taken two ways - one about love and meeting a girl - or hip-hop (as it is portrayed as a female in many eyes). The visuals take you along this romantic encounter though with anything, there's always a twist. I'm glad these two linked up. SeT and Haviah Mighty that is. Separately they're phenomenal, together they're a force to be reckoned with.
"In parapsychology and many forms of spiritual practice, an aura is a field of subtle, luminous radiation surrounding a person or object (like the halo or aureola in religious art). The depiction of such an aura often connotes a person of particular power or holiness. It is said that all living things (including humans) and all objects manifest such an aura. Often it is held to be perceptible, whether spontaneously or with practice: such perception is at times linked with the third eye of Indian spirituality. It has also been described as a map of the thoughts and feelings surrounding a person." - Bowers, Barbara, Ph.D: What Color Is Your Aura? Personality Spectrums for Understanding and Growth - 1989 You can interpret the meaning AuRA however you choose to look at it. For SeT, it's the power of harnessing the power of positive energy, coinciding with the negative energy. You can't have the good, without the bad. His named derived from the Egyptian God, SeT. Who was employed by Ra, as the God of Chaos. Outgoing, philosophical,intellectual and innovative, SeT embodies the traits of the Egyptian God, based on his fascination with Egyptian mythology. Having a long line of talented musicians in his family, it's almost as if SeT was born to pursue music. Sit down and speak with him for twenty minutes, you'll see he is no ordinary rapper. The thought process he has about everything is on another level. From the energy we give off, to any topic at hand. AuRA, a 10 track LP from SmashMouth Music Group's own, speaks volumes on quality over quantity. One song in and you can feel the presence SeT gives on the mic. A heavy one. He's no newbie to making music and gives you an almost, tell-all with AuRA. Putting his life on the line in pursuit of something that means everything to him. There's hidden meaning, with unconcealed truth all throughout the album. Having sat on it since it came out, taking it in slowly, I found the power of the music SeT provides on this is impeccable. Mood music for the soul. Take in SeT's album AuRA as we go on a track by track break down. Hit the link to read the full review!
