THE CYPHER feat. Sep and J Shiltz

WHEN: Weds. Nov. 16, 2011 - Doors @ 9:30pm

WHERE: Augusta House - 152 Augusta Avenue (Kensington Market)

This month at THE CYPHER, we're featuring two up-and-coming artists:

Sep -

Raw talent. Word smith. Lyrical mastermind. Quick creativity. Instant composition. Urban griot. To say that Sep is a phenomenal MC would be to overlook the numerous unique qualities that make this hip-hop artist a true original. 

An aggressive lyrical style, gifted thought processes, and intelligent ideologies have shaped the tone and impact of Sep's music. He is a rapper's rapper. One that is hard…without being rigid. One that is clever…without being cocky, and one that is talented…effortlessly. Simply watching Sep perform and listening to his creations will easily bring industry experts and music consumers alike to the same conclusion: Sep represents the direction that true music lovers want to see hip hop go in, and he is destined to continue to rise to the top of his craft.

Sep's [first??] studio album, Allergy Pills and Alcohol (aka Who Is Sep), was released on May 29, 2011 and features guest vocals from Sadat X, Rich Kidd, Grimace Love, Slakah the Beatchild, Black Cat and Korry Deez (of IRS), Wio-K, among others.


J Shiltz -

J Shiltz makes his return to The Cypher, and if you saw his first appearance you already know you don't wanna miss this. The Sauga City MC has dropped hit after hit since his Kev Brown produced debut single "Louder" featuring Notlam and Grimace Love was released in May of 2010, and now he is finally ready to release his first official album. WHAT I STAND FOR drops on November 17th at the Sound Battle Royal. The album features production from Kev Brown, Rich Kidd, Lancecape, Smash Brovaz, and Philly's own Twizzmatic while boasting features from Frank Nitty, Illa J, and Sonreal as well as some of Toronto's dopest MC's.

Hip Hop culture manifests through the creative self-expression of individuals who embody its spirit in their respective art forms. This power of spontaneous creativity, the unification of a community for the great purpose that is Hip Hop, happens at The Cypher.

Artists sign up to take part in group performances called cyphers, in which each performer takes a few minutes on the mic and then passes it on to the next performer. All performances occur over music supplied by a live DJ, beat boxer, or producer. There are also a few spots at The Cypher reserved for featured artists to perform their own sets.

The Cypher is a grassroots hip hop event started by MC FÜBB, DJ Combo and the Hip Hop Headz (H3) community in downtown Toronto in the summer of 2009. The Cypher is an event where hip hop MCs, DJs, producers, and other artists from around the world come to meet and showcase their talents and skills, and gives them an opportunity to network and create business opportunities. The Cypher is an event designed to keep alive the spirit of spontaneous creativity and showmanship that can occur only in hip hop. The Cypher is an opportunity for various members of the hip hop community to perform, network, build community and have fun.
