R E M i B I O .

New to the game but old to its’ ways, 22-year-old Melbourne lyricist Remi ‘REMi’ Kolawole exudes a unique style, rhythmic flow and an honest delivery.

His semi tongue-in-cheek braggadocios style, by no means overshadows his lyrical abilities. Remi’s 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.

On the back of releasing two EP’s in 2011 (‘Childish’ and ‘Five Beats I Love’) his debut 2012 album ‘Regular People Sh#%t’ not only cements his previous forte’s, but also displays a confidence in showing several new ones.

The album (produced in full by local duo J Smith & Dutch) covers a varying subject matter and has equal nods (lyrically) to everyone from Slum Village to Drake as it does Black Thought and early Kanye West.

Remi’s 1st single of the album, APE caused a bit of a commotion down at Triple J.
As a result, Remi was made an Unearthed feature artist, and his debut LP ‘Regular People Shit’, dubbed the Hip-Hop Show’s feature album.

Since then he has supported acts such as XXL freshman Danny Brown, Jesse Boykins iii, Melo X, MED, Mono/Poly, Jonwayne, N’fa Jones, Diafrix, Thundamental, Arrested Development and played at the 2012 Sydney Song Summit, Big Sound along side fellow RunForYourLife members.

Not bad for someone whose been rapping for a year and a half!
Remi is being championed as a refreshing, young, evolving, gifted, forward thinking talent to watch, and rightfully so.
