After international shows with Joey Bada$$, Danny Brown and De La Soul, 23-year-old Melbourne newcomer Remi will be making his UK live debut at Birthdays on 29th October for a very special (and free) show.
New to the game but old to its ways, Remi Kolawole exudes a unique style, rhythmic flow and an honest delivery. His semi tongue-in-cheek braggadocious style by no means overshadows his lyrical abilities. His rapping persona is comfortable sitting amongst varying musical backdrops and tempos, and his singing voice is as smooth and catchy as the hooks he sings. Expertly balancing singing and rapping, Remi’s content is highly self-referential, littered with pop-cultural tid-bits and tales of a life equally footed in fantasy as it is reality.
Emerging in 2013, he racked-up a bunch of impressive Australian music awards including the triple j Unearthed Artist of the Year Award, performed to packed audiences right around the country and landed international supports with some of hip-hop’s greatest names.
2014 is shaping up to be even bigger with ‘Raw X Infinity’ receiving immense critical acclaim in his native Australia, three singles getting airplay right across the country and performing countless shows to packed audiences.
Remi is being championed as a refreshing, young, evolving, gifted, forward thinking talent to watch, and rightfully so. Watch this space.
