Melbourne emcee Remi has hit new levels of success after just winning Triple Js Unearthed Artist of the Year! Laying it down since 2012, Remi has developed a flow that’s effortlessly expressive and poetic.

Released at the start of the year Remi’s debut single ‘Sangria’ impressed audiences across Australia. Next came ‘Saggin’, a fast-paced, self referential jaunt that’s coolly confident and decidedly fun!

Remi has previously supported the likes of Danny Brown, MED, and N’fa Jones, and was also a recent addition to the Falls Music and Arts Festival line-up. He’s a young, evolving, forward thinking rapper who’s clearly got the goods. Congratulations Remi!
