“One Step Closer” is a passionate mission statement from Florida rapper Brian Breach, who makes it clear that his artistry, and what he puts into his music is his top priority. It also features a stellar guest feature from Bronx spitter Mickey Factz, who delivers equally contemplative bars about what it means to be an artist in today’s indie music universe.
The track stems from Breach’s recently released LP, Matter of Fact, which includes other standout joints like “Breakfast,” featuring Chris Rivers. But it’s “One Step Closer” that perfectly captures Breach and his approach to his craft. Beneath the slick bravado and super-sharp technical skills, he’s a man trying to make it on his own terms doing what he loves. As he sing-songs on the infectious chorus, “I got this Biggie song stuck in my head/ Turn my negative to positive/ And every day I’m getting closer…”
The track is produced by George Young, who provides a soaring instrumental that precisely complements Breach and Factz’ raps. Backed by Young’s melodic vocal sample and layer of guitars, you’ll hear both emcees doing what they do best; dropping bars with reckless abandon.
Check out the track for yourself, and if you’d like to support, Breach’s 15 track effort, Matter of Fact, is now available on iTunes and all major digital retailers and streaming platforms.
