Bio

Returning to the backbone of the culture, through addictive horns, drums and base to uplifting and beautifully moving vocals from new soul talent Katie Brian (Rinse FM) the band hold the essence of a good party in their fingers. Instigator and rapper Mr Man completes this charismatic bunch with insightful, fun and velocity wordplay.

The Illersapiens’ sound is unique and one that fuses all the best bits of Reggae, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Broken Beat and even dance elements like House and Drum n Bass with sounds from the metropolis they call their home. It’s no wonder then perhaps that comparisons to US greats like The Roots, Digable Planet’s and Arrested Development keep flying in from all corners.

Already famous for their live shows up and down the country, and gaining a colossal following of critics and fans a like, they have recently gained the deserved support and salute from certified talent finder Ras Kwame. Having recently been invited down to perform at the legendary BBC Maida Vale as part of his Homegrown show.

The Illersapiens have a monthly residency in Brixtons Ritzy cinema every first Thursday of the month.
