Home Town Description: 

“We love having access to nature. Colorado has beautiful summers and you are literally on nature’s doorstep the moment you walk outside. There are mountains and lakes and rivers and trees. It is just really beautiful. It gives you a sense of peace and it is a great place to come home to.”

The Reminders are a hip-hop duo comprised of Brussels, Belgium-born emcee Big Samir and Queens, New York native emcee/vocalist Aja Black. Blending soulful sounds and roots music with thoughtful lyrics that message peaceful social change, the positive themes of their rhymes and powerful vocals mesh with reggae-tinged hip-hop beats to carve a unique space in the American and global hip-hop scenes.

The Reminders' debut album, Recollect, and their latest release, Born Champions, are both critically and popularly acclaimed, and they have been recognized and applauded for their work internationally through concerts, tours, music awards, TV, and radio appearances. The Reminders have shared the stage with artists such as Les Nubians, Snoop Dogg, Fishbone, Barrington Levy, Nas, Mos Def, Big Boi, KRS-One, Rakim, and K'Naa.
