Biography

Sean Mauricette a.k.a. SUBLIMINAL is a jack of all trades. Part beat-boxer, DJ, lyricist and producer, this is the unique combination that makes up Subliminal’s style.

In 1998 Subliminal toured Canada and Western Europe as well as performed the 1999 Much Music Video Awards and opened for such recording artists as Mos Def, D12, Arrested Development, De La Soul and Morris Day and the Time to name a few. Subliminal brings passion and new flavor to the shows. Before the performance begins, he whips the crowd into a frenzy with his tight mixes and incredible energy. During the shows he drops amazing voice-overs, imitations of popular artists, beat-boxing and turntable tricks that always leaves the crowd in awe.

Subliminal has recently launched his self produced debut album entitled TRAINATHOUGHT. A style of hip hop he calls ‘Soul-Hop’, which is less concerned with negativity and speaks more to matters of the soul. Subliminal’s music feels like the smooth, bangin’ beats of J. Dilla with a touch of A Tribe Called Quest, a side of Dwele with a pinch of Neyo, complete with a dash of LL Cool J. and Digable Planets.

Currently a member of ACTRA Subliminal also has his eyes on acting. Working alongside actors such as Kevin Bacon, Howie Mandel and Jill Scott, Subliminal is also responsible for producing the theme music for CBC radios daily show, Here and Now.

A graduate from the University of Toronto’s faculty or Architecture, Subliminal is the first ever recipient of the Arts and Culture award presented to him from the Black Students Association of the University of Toronto. Currently the host and key note speaker for the P.U.L.L. Project (Peace, Unity, Leadership, and Learning), Subliminal knows that youth need encouragement to follow the right path and not be deterred by the negative stereotypes and images perpetuated by society. Subliminal was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation on behalf of the Councilors Association of Ontario for all his work with the grade school, middle school and high school students. Whether lecturing or mentoring underprivileged teens Subliminal actively plays the role.

From designing new beats and scratches to shows and skyscrapers, Subliminal constantly reinvents formulas for success.
