Remi Kolawole and Sensible J, aka. REMI are now one of the fastest-rising hip-hop acts in Australia, making a mark with their unique style, rhythmic flow and an honest delivery. Remi’s braggadocios style by no means overshadows his lyrical abilities, and he expertly balances singing and rapping. Remi’s content is highly self-referential, littered with pop-cultural tidbits and tales of a life equally footed in fantasy as it is reality.
REMI racked-up a bunch of impressive awards including the triple J Unearthed Artist of the year J Award, has performed to packed audiences around the country, and landed international supports with the likes of Joey Bada$$, Danny Brown and De La Soul. As well as performing their own sold-out headline tours across Europe and Australia, REMI have also shared the stage with Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown, Vic Mensa, De La Soul, Joey Bada$$, Blackalicious, Hiatus Kaiyote and were invited to perform Gorillaz tracks with Damon Albarn on each of his Australian shows.
REMI’s sophomore LP Divas and Demons was independently released through REMI’s own label imprint House of Beige Records, which was featured on triple j and went on to become the duo’s first official ARIA Top 10 record. Join us for a special set by one of the new acts to watch in hip hop worldwide.
