LEAVE THE LABELLING TO THE DESIGNERS

A[WEAR] FASHION EVENT. WEDNESDAY JUNE 6TH

A[WEAR] proved to be an amazing success and it wouldn’t have been possible without our amazing sponsors. We were so blown away by everyone’s support and generosity. The night consisted of beautiful food and drinks in an awesome setting of projections, music, dancing and people. And did you hear about the pop up store? It was nuts! All the reworked vintage finds literally walked out the door. The night culminated with a live fashion show and contemporary dances.

For those of you that came, we are so thrilled to have had your support.

Check out the snaps from the night by the wonderful Alex Biernacki Photographer from www.contemporarytattoo.tumblr.com

REMI TO PERFORM AT A[WEAR]

A[WEAR] introduce to you Remi performing tomorrow night! New to the game but old to its’ ways, 20-year-old Melbourne lyricist Remi exudes a unique style, rhythmic flow and an honest delivery.

His semi tongue-in-cheek braggadocious style, by no means overshadows his lyrical abilities. Remi’s rapping persona is comfortable sitting amongst varying musical backdrops and tempos, and his singing voice is as smooth and catchy as the hooks he sings.

Expertly balancing singing and rapping, Remi’s content is highly self referential, littered with pop-cultural tid bits and tales of a life equally footed in fantasy as it is reality.

On the back of releasing two EP’s in 2011 (‘Childish’ and ‘Five Beats I Love’) his debut 2012 album ‘Regular People Sh#%t’ not only cements his previous forte’s, but also displays a confidence in showing several new ones.

The album (produced in full by local duo J Smith & Dutch) covers a varying subject matter and has equal nods (lyrically) to everyone from Slum Village to Drake as it does Black Thought and early Kanye West.

The album is already heavily featured on Triple J Radio (Hau’s “Hip-Hop Show” and Dom Allesio’s “Home & Hosed”), and as a result Remi was made Triple J Unearthed feature artist, on to of making Hip Hop feature Album on The Hip Hop Show!

Remi is being championed as a refreshing, young, evolving, gifted, forward thinking talent to watch, and rightfully so.

How did you get involved in music?

I started playing piano at the age of 4 as a result of parental persuasion, but Hip Hop, I only began a year and half ago. I got involved because:

a) I wanted to give it a crack

b) one of my mates bet me I couldn’t rap.

 

Who is your main influence?

My producer J Smith. He’s very knowledgeable and very tolerable.

 

How would you define your musical style?

Where do you get your inspiration from?

I honestly don’t know, whoever and whatever!!


How do you see the future of Australian hip hop and rap scene?

It’s looking pretty tasty at the moment, a lot of up and coming artists trying to change up and make their own styles, which is super exciting!

 

Describe yourself artistically in three words?

Buck wild child.

 

A[Wear] is an event that is raising awareness to the younger generation, your music obviously speaks to young people - what message would you say you convey through your music?

Do whatever you want to do. You’re young, and you’re only young once. Therefore, insure you go hard as mother trucker at what ever you do. Yew!!!!
