Subculture Sage is producer Subculture Sounds and lyricist Hypeman Sage. Since the release of their debut single two years ago, they have manifested themselves as one of the UK’s most innovative and talked about Hip Hop acts. An early 2014 feature with Mixmag likened them to the Streets and Roll Deep and Daily Mirror later ran a feature on them, describing them as “one of the most exciting Hip Hop duos around”. Another big moment for the duo came around this time when their single ‘Childhood’ was released via Majestic Casual’s youtube channel where it reached over 500k hits and was later supported by Zane Lowe who described the duo as “so fresh and so exciting”.
The summer of 2014 saw the release of their debut self-titled EP on Subculture’s label ‘Twisted Hearts Records’, which saw Sage shifting between topics of youth, mischief and morality while producer Subculture fused contemporary urban beats with tropical colour, referencing Jazz, Afrobeat and Indie as closely as their Hip Hop foundation. The EP was described by Noisey as “stretching the sides of what Hip Hop can be” and Pigeons & Planes as being “at the front of the UK’s new wave of experimental Hip Hop... Subculture Sage are genuinely interested in creating something new”. The EP garnered further support from Complex, Rob Da Bank (BBCR1), Clash, Line of Best Fit, Tom Ravenscroft (BBCR6), iD, Wonderland, SBTV, John Kennedy (XFM), NME and more.
Over the past year, the duo have been in the studio focusing on their debut album - scheduled for release in September 2015. They have meanwhile released a few singles and remixes, continuing their radio support from a long list of Radio 1, Radio 6 and XFM DJs and also an XFM X-POSURE Track of the Week with their newest single ‘Chances’. The duo have also mobilized Brooklyn’s ‘Firehouse’ studio (responsible for all the early Wu-Tang Clan and Gang Starr records) in a post- production capacity for their new record and also landed support tours with US Hip Hop veterans Dead Prez and Pharoahe Monch, along with countless UK/European shows and live sessions with both Mahogany and Sofar Sounds. With a few festivals in the diary for the summer, the duo are putting together the finishing touches for what may be a very important record for the UK music scene.
