» » Remi ft Jordan Rakei - Lose Sleep (Sensible J)


Melbourne hip-hop artist Remi and musical collaborator, Sensible J (collectively known as REMI) get ready to share their highly anticipated full-length album, 'Divas and Demons'. Out on REMI’s imprint, House of Beige on September 16, the seventeen-track sophomore LP features the widely loved, triple j high-rotation ‘singles ‘For Good' featuring Sampa the Great, and the most recent single 'Substance Therapy’.

Here the duo deliver the last leak with the Jordan Rakei featured "Lose Sleep". OF the track they said this:

Since our last record, a lot of young mixed race Aussie kids have come to me talking about how much they can relate to the racial struggle in our music. I don't think that's a good thing, but I'm proud that these kids feel a little less alone, because of the songs we didn't think anyone would hear. It also became inspiration for me to continue opening up about my experience. Often you can feel like one crazy beige kid in a sea of ignorance shouting about equality. These kids helped change that for me. The most beautiful thing about a lot of musicians I know is how much the social climate effects them. Jordan Rakei is one of those musicians. Even though we are literally continents apart when we worked on this joint, with very little background on the song, Jordan was able to match the tone and message immediately. Partially because his voice sounds like liquid gold, but mostly because I know he gets it. It's very apparent across his discography (if you haven't heard it, get it) that hi cares for our planet and the people in it. Thanks for being one of the good guys my brother. Remi.
