Gig Review: Seth Sentry + REMI + Lane-Harry x Ike Campbell, The Triffid, 2 July 2016

It was a full house at The Triffid for the stellar Aussie hip-hop lineup of Seth Sentry, REMI and perennial Gold Coast favourites Lane-Harry x Ike Campbell on Saturday night.

The place was already humming at 7.00pm and by the time Lane-Harry x Ike Campbell hit the stage to debut their incredible new album YOUTH the crowd was buzzing and greatly appreciative. Their smooth new sounds were a perfect start to the evening, with plenty of hand waving going on in the crowd.  New track Dial 66 went totally off.

REMI is always a crowd pleaser.  It’s hard to tell who is having more fun – him performing his energetic show, or the audience watching it.  He’s a funny dude as well, always cheerful and willing to have a chat with fans who came up to get some signed merch after his set. He rocked as always.

The crowd was totally pumped by the time Seth Sentry came on.  Renowned for his awesome live performances, he didn’t disappoint on the night.  The accompanying DJ and drummer made for a really great live feel – it added a huge amount of presence.

His whole set was incredibly tight with a great energy.  The new single 1969 was awesome but the highlight was definitely Hell Boy (off Strange New Past) which really pumped the crowd up til they were frantic, and then played into Fake Champagne.

Seth ended his set on a high with a Dear Science and Nobody Like Me mashup, with REMI returning to the stage alongside him.

A fantastic night overall which proves that Australian hip-hop is alive and well.
