Remi Kolawole (AKA REMI) and long time collaborator Sensible J are bringing their syncopated flows, rich fusion of textured futuristic Hip Hop, positive vibes and a party to headline BMF 2018!
Remi delivers deftly over hip-shakin’ drum breaks smothered in creamy layered instrumentation, Afro-beat guitar licks, soulful diversity coupled with an advanced amalgamation of personal and political sensibilities deeply rooted in solidarity.
“If you feel the vibe, just jump on it” – Remi.
Remi’s debut album RAW X Infinity was admirably confident and incredibly progressive. Sophomore LP Divas & Demons takes a thematically concerned, funky and ambitious approach. Bold production, an array of special guests, intelligent and inspiring lyricism makes it definitely one of our favourite albums at BMF H/Q. “While, Raw X Infinity was the sledgehammer that struck the concrete, Divas & Demons is the decaying rose that has been waiting to bloom since before the bone and mortar was poured on the ground. ” Kieron Byatt, Tone Deaf
Remi has headlined sold out shows across Europe and Australia and shared the stage with Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown, Vic Mensa, De La Soul, Joey Bada$$, Blackalicious, Hiatus Kaiyote and were invited to perform Gorillaz tracks with Damon Albarn on each of his Australian shows. PS: Remi is coming to Beechworth!
A phenomenal entertainer, Remi brings punters together and the party transforms into a tribal gathering to celebrate good times, peace, love, community and life.
“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
All the team at BMF Central are totally amped for Remi to headline our festival! We all got our dancin’ shoes polished, are rarin’ and ready to go!
