The third and final album from REMI, ‘Fried’ was written and recorded from 2017-2020 and features an array of guest vocalists including Silent Jay, Lorry, Children of Zeus’ Tyler Daley, Whosane and Baasto. ‘Fried’ was recorded at House of Beige studios and comes out via House of Beige/Believe in Australia/New Zealand and Jakarta Records for the Rest of the World.
REMI burst onto the scene in 2012 with the impressively unique and fresh-sounding ‘Regular People Shit’ mixtape, however it was the break-out laid-back summer vibes of their ‘Sangria’ single which appeared on the 2013 mixtape ‘F.Y.G. ACT:1’ that garnered national and international attention. Later that year REMI went on to win triple J’s Unearthed Artist of the Year and in 2014 they independently released their debut album ‘Raw X Infinity’ which went on to win the Australian Music Price (AMP) for Australian Album of the Year, the first hip-hop record to ever do so.
2015 saw the release of the ‘Call It What You Want (F.Y.G. ACT:2)’ Mixtape in which REMI reimagined tracks from artists such as Radiohead, Nick Cave and The Police and then in 2016 REMI released their sophomore album ‘Divas and Demons’, again independently. Receiving critical acclaim across the board, ‘Divas and Demons’ went on to reach the top 10 of the ARIA Charts. More touring followed and in 2017 REMI were nominated for the prestigious US BET Awards.
Over the past 7 years REMI performed numerous sold-out headline shows and tours across Australia, Europe and the UK and also shared the stage with acts such as Danny Brown, Vic Mensa, De La Soul, Joey Bada$$ and Blackalicious. They performed some of the world’s biggest and best festivals including Splendour in the Grass, Openair Frauenfeld (Switzerland), Fusion Festival (Germany), Les Escales (France) and performed at international showcase events including SXSW and the Great Escape.
With features across acclaimed tastemaker media outlets such as OkayPlayer, Majestic Casual, COLORS, Billboard, NME, MTV, NPR and shout outs from the likes of hip-hop luminaire Chuck D and Outkast’s Big Boi, REMI’s appeal was as diverse as it was impressive.
Both Remi and Sensible J would like to thank everyone who has supported their music and their journey to this point and have released statements on their individual socials regarding ‘Fried’ being the final REMI record.More information
