Subculture Sage – Childhood
Nemone (BBC Radio 6): “it’s beautiful… absolutely gorgeous”
Clash Magazine: “soft as caramel… a salute to 90s hip hop”
After receiving praise for their debut release, ‘Overly Dead’, from the likes of BBC Radio 1 & Radio 6, NME, MTHRFNKR and Rob Da Bank, Subculture Sage now offer a second serving of nostalgia dipped soul with the single, ‘Childhood’.
Released under Subculture Sounds’ Twisted Hearts banner, the producer has built a soulful hiphop track with an old school vibe, whilst MC Hypeman Sage spits nostalgia, reminiscing on growing up in London when we were “hip-hopping, backpacks with our caps backwards”.
Enlisting Yoram Vazan, the man who recorded all the early Wu-Tang and Gang Starr records in a mixing and mastering capacity has definitely given the project its hip-hop credentials, and on ‘Childhood’ we hear a track with a genuine classic feel reminiscing over summers past.
