A unique voice who has been making waves all over the world, REMI has shared the stage with Danny Brown, Vic Mensa, De La Soul, Joey Bada$$ and in December last year was invited to perform Gorillaz tracks with Damon Albarn on each of his Australian Tour shows. As a live act his skill is simply phenomenal – performing alongside producer / beatmaster extraordinaire Sensible J, his shows are the calling card that have turned heads globally.
Earlier this year REMI was also awarded the Rolling Stone Award for Best Independent Release and the Coopers AMP (Australian Music Prize) for their album ‘Raw X Infinity’ – This is Australia’s version of the Mercury Music Award and no Hip-Hop/urban act had ever won it previously.
With features across international media such as OkayAfrica, Billboard, NME, Mass Appeal, MTV Iggy, NPR and shout outs from the likes of Chuck D, REMI’s appeal is as diverse as it is impressive.
There’s no artist in Australia – hip hop or otherwise – producing music that’s as admirably confident or accessibly progressive as that featured on Raw X Infinity. REMI’s fit for stardom, and he knows it. – Tone Deaf.
“There’s finally a real feeling that Australia is home to some heavyweight hip hop acts that can compete on the world stage. Nothing is more evident of this than REMI’s banging new track ‘Tyson’ from his award-winning album, Raw X Infinity. The landscape has never looked better for Australian fans of Hip Hop’ and Remi Kolawole is getting in early and staking a claim for the crown”. – Itsmykindofscene.com
“REMI is a consummate performer. He’s impossibly slick and completely unafraid to shake what his mama gave him (seriously, this dude’s got moves). He knows how to whip the crowd into a frenzy. There’s nowhere for this young artist to go but up. Betting against REMI would be a fool’s move. He’s got the goods”. - themusic.com
