In April of this year, emerging Melbourne hip-hop artist REMi, dropped a decidedly big tune in Sangria, his incredibly catchy tribute to days off and drinks with the homies.

REMi

Sangria, and it’s accompanying video in all its laid back Melbourne summer glory, was an instant reminder of that season just passed, but most importantly, a re-introduction to the exceptionally talented and infinitely likeable sounds of one of the brightest new voices in Australian rap.

Fast forward a couple months of constant triple j play, almost 20,000 video views and a whole lot of love industry wide, and REMi today announces a brand new free mixtape – FYG :: ACT 1 – and the announcement of his first national run – the Free Sangria tour – taking in an array of capital cities this coming July.

Alongside partner, producer, DJ and long-time homie Sensible J, REMi brings his trademark energy, humour and style to Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Fremantle and hometown Melbourne on the Free Sangria tour, his first national headline tour after supporting the likes of Danny Brown, De La Soul, The Pharcyde and Jesse Boykins III.

A smooth joyride through Remi’s influences, musical and otherwise, FYG :: ACT 1 finds the 22 year old acting up over an eclectic mix of famous jams (Gangstarr, Janet Jackson) and an impressive set of original tracks (Sangria’s upcoming single Saggin‘ & last year’s acclaimed single Ape) all produced by in-house team Sensible J & Dutch.

REMi is one to watch certainly. One to see and hear definitely.
