I actually came across this on one of my social network feeds while I was at work and I’d plan on sharing it but alas life got in the way till now. Breis is a UK emcee with Nigerian roots who has been consistently putting out quality material while touring and promoting his book ‘Brilliant Rappers Educate Intelligent Students’. A thoroughbred student of the game mixing intelligence, wit, social commentary, humour and everything in between. Without delving to much, this new single  ‘Only Human’ off his Brilliant EP received a facelift by Kensaye, a French producer based in London. A hybrid of soul/electronica and pounding drums to match Breis’s self poignant narrative. I need not say more, click play and enjoy.

Only Human’ is the new single taken from The Brilliant EP by London based Hip Hop MC, BREIS (breeze). The cool and eclectic Kensaye mix of Only Human is soulful electronica for your eardrums.

BREIS is a seasoned emcee and host of Urban Griots open mic session, one of London’s premier shows for rappers and poets in the late 90s and early 00s. BREIS has performed at prestigious venues such as London’s Jazz Café, Barbican, Queen Elizabeth hall, Blue Note Tokyo in Japan and numerous festivals across Europe and Africa. A seasoned performer who has toured internationally and shared the stage with artists such as Black Thought (of The Roots), Angie Stone, Omar Sosa, Nneka, Les Nubians, Tony Allen and Kim Burrell. In 2012 he was invited to give a TEDxYouth talk and performance. BREIS is also an author and has published a book of rhymes entitled ‘Brilliant Rappers Educate Intelligent Students’
