Hip Hop star shares intimate recordings from Rdio Sessions in Austin
Rdio, a leading global music streaming service, is thrilled to announce Australian rapper REMI will be commanding the spotlight for the most recent chapter of Rdio Sessions. As previously showcased with Milo Greene and British rockers The 1975, Rdio Sessions champions both established and up-and-coming artists by presenting them in ways that fans have never heard before.
Available exclusively on Rdio, the critically acclaimed Australian MC took to the studio in Austin to record the live and intimate session. While in town for his killer SxSW showcase earlier this year, REMI laid down six stripped back renditions of the original tracks including ‘Livin’, ‘Sangria’ and ‘That’s. That. Shit.’, performed in collaboration with Sensible J.
“It was awesome to work with a very strong crew of individuals,” said Remi Kolawole, aka REMI. “Initiatives like Rdio Sessions are a good idea and really important for emerging artists,” continued the Melbourne lyricist.
2014 was a huge year for the young MC with his awarded debut album, RAW X INFINITY, receiving immense critical acclaim both locally and abroad. To top it off, in 2014 REMI was nominated for the coveted ‘Australian Breakthrough Artist of the Year’ award and was also presented the Australian Independent Record Labels Association’s $50,000 ‘Global Music Grant’. 2015 is proving to be even more explosive for the hip-hop star, with REMI having already won the Australian Music Prize and wowed international crowds at London’s annual Aussie BBQ.
With all eyes on REMI and his epic rise to stardom, fans can now sink their teeth into this powerful and exclusive Rdio Session.
