» » REMI ft Jordan Rakei - Lose Sleep - (Film Clip)


Filmed across two cities on opposite sides of the Earth, Melbourne and London, the clip features both Remi and Jordan walking darkly lit streets singing the highly personal lyrics with a reflective sensibility. The soul-infused, percussion based track speaks an important message.


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 some 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 were literally continents apart when he worked on this joint, with very little background on the song, Jordan was able too 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 he cares for our planet and the people in it. Thanks for being one of the good guys my brother. – Remi

I know Rem already mentioned Jordan Rakei, but damn, I’m mentioning him again! When I downloaded the vocals he sent, popped em in the track (already lined-up - thank you bro), then hit play……………. Absolutely killed it, perfect EVERYTHING. - Sensible J
