Brother portrait releases his long awaited EP – navigate:in limbo
The Nusoulhub Radio team got an opportunity to speak to Brother portrait in early November and we chopped it up about his then upcoming project navigate: in limbo. He assured us that the project would be released before the year ends and he stuck by his promise as the project was released a few days ago.
The eleven-track EP is exactly what we expected it to be and perhaps even more, as it serves as a passage or an entrance to black British life. Imagine the all the experiences, emotions, frustrations and joys of being cut between your African identity and a new found European identity, conveyed in music. The project does exactly that, it gives you an opportunity to see the world the way Brother portraits sees the world and invites the diaspora to look into the many nuances of struggle and existence within the global black community. One is taken on a journey of different sounds and emotions when listening to the project and one receives a front-row seat into Brother portrait’s life.
The EP is a perfect layer of foundation for Brother portrait as this project will serve as an introduction to him as artist to many people. Listeners should expect to be educated on the Black British experience, the importance of holding onto your identity despite where you are on the planet and the value of expression.
We look forward to what he will be releasing in 2017 as a solo act and as part of the Black/Other outfit. He did mention that there might be some new visuals dropping soon. So while you wait for the visuals to drop, listen to the EP below.
