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 … Continue reading Remi London Show Info & New Track ‘Aviation (Disco Weed)’
