After returning earlier this month with their first track in 2019, Melbourne duo REMI (Remi Kolawole and producer Sensible J), have released the weird and wonderful visual for single 5 A.M. feat. Whosane.
Directed by cinematographer and filmmaker Barun Chatterjee, the video sees the trio wide-awake at 5am. In the dark and moody early morning, they weave through genres and moods with dynamic aesthetics and styling to match. Combining Remi Kolawole’s vocals with Sensible J’s world-class production and peaking with an old-school soulful R&B bridge thanks to Whosane, it is no surprise why theduo continue to hold reign at the top of Australia’s world class hip hop sphere. Chatterjee on the video:
“It’s 5 am, the world is asleep. But Remi is awake. He is awake every night, trying to blend up a wild and fruity elixir. Will he perfect his recipe, or will it turn out to be a toxic witches brew? 5 A.M. is a multi-layered track musically and lyrically. The accompanying video is the same. It takes a dark story and dances through genres and moods, standing by Remi’s side as he crosses between silky smooth vocals and strong, punctuated rap versus”
The pair have also announced their only headline tour dates for 2019 this November, presented by House of Beige and Niche. The pair kick their 4 date tour in Adelaide on November 15th before heading to Melbourne on the 16th, Sydney on the 22 and Brisbane on the 29th.
With a limitless talent between the magical pairing of Remi Kolawole and Sensible J, 5 A.M. and its accompanying video only further affirms immensely captivating and innovative musical talents of the hip hop heavyweights. With a new visual and shows on the horizon, REMI are set to make their mark on 2019 and beyond. Check out their new music video and full list of tour dates plus ticket information below.
