Melbourne hip-hop artist Remi and musical collaborator, Sensible J (collectively known as REMI) have today released their highly anticipated full-length album, 'Divas and Demons'. Out on REMI’s imprint, House of Beige, the sixteen-track sophomore LP features the widely loved, triple j high-rotation ‘singles ‘For Good' featuring Sampa the Great, 'Substance Therapy’, and the most recent single 'Lose Sleep' ft. Jordan Rakei.
A hip-hop and soul release at its core, 'Divas and Demons' explores REMI’s personal experiences from the state of race issues, to the personal demons of relationship breakdowns, depression and the ongoing challenges faced as an artist. Incorporating an array of live instrumentation, found-sounds and soulful electronics – the production terrain of the record shifts towards diverse musical exploration, anchored within head-nodding, soul shaking beats.
An LP of inimitable storytelling and unique production, Divas and Demons features some of Australia’s brightest hip-hop and soul artists. Simon Mavin (Hiatus Kaiyote), Sampa Tembo (Sampa the Great), Jordan Rakei, Baro, Silent Jay, Tom Scott (Average Rap Band), Lorry (Hiatus Kaiyote), Nui Moon and Cazeaux O.S.L.O. (Man Made Mountain) all lend their talents to various moments throughout the record.
