Live Review: Remi @ The Foundry

Remi (18 of 21)

Melbourne MC Remi launched his brand new single For Good at Brisbane’s The Foundry last Thursday. Brisbane was the first stop on the ‘For Good’ National tour where he was joined by his main homie, Sensible J on drums, Man Made Mountain, and Brisbane’s own Astro Travellers.

Kicking off his set with XTC Party, the groovy laid back track had Remi shimmering with confidence right from the beginning. Owning the stage with banging dance moves and stage lighting that followed every lean and dab, Remi had the crowd eating out of his palm from minute he graced the stage. The crowd was screaming his name as they danced, completely spellbound by his contagious feel-good hip hop.

Being the first show on the ‘For Good’ tour, Brisbane’s ears were treated to two brand new tracks. Remi kept the positive vibes alive by giving out free mix-tapes, engaging the entire crowd in a mass two-step dance and giving a shout-out to some guy down the back for “vibing hard” over popular track Sangria. His interaction with the audience really put his performance on another level – he wasn’t just Remi, he was our mate Remi!

Kicking off a three-man rasta rap battle with his two supports acts, hands were in the air like we just didn’t care, and we were praying the night would never end. This was the perfect segue into the song everyone was waiting for and the reason Remi was on tour, For Good. Although performed without Sampa The Great, Remi’s live execution of the track added the personal connection that it needed. Remi’s appreciation of the crowd’s response to For Good was clear to everyone to see as he struggled to wipe the cheshire cat smile on his face.

The atmosphere of The Foundry was like a house gig where everyone knew each other and Remi was the friend who we had all tagged along to support. Closing the show with fan favourite Tyson, Remi ended the night on a massive high as his fans continued to cheer even after he was long gone from the stage.

Remi is a must see entertainer, a rising Australian hip hop star, and an all round talented groover that you really just have to see live!
