Heads turned since his label debut Whats Yo Tempetcha? last summer on the Dirtybird BBQ collection: Sage is fast becoming one of the labels most distinctive characters. His slurring south western drawl delivering steamy narratives, and his heady fusion of hip-hop, booty bass and tech funk, give a cool confidence thats seldom seen at such an early stage of an artists career.
Case in point: She Smokin. A track co-penned with his longstanding studio wingman Bot it rolls with an unhurried broken kick arrangement and intoxicating subs while Sage paints a classic picture of lust at first sight, his steamy saga building with the slick synth fills and broad bass.
Another case in point: Quest To The West. Here Sage gets personal as he notates his transition from east to west. Written just days after he relocated from Florida to LA, Sage runs us through his adventure through a sun-baked soft-focus haze.
Already tried and tested by Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin and Sage himself, She Smokin sets the tone for whats set to be Sages most exciting year to date. Remember where you heard him first.
