On JUNE 24, 2015, STUNNA closes out the month and dives head first into summer with a very special edition of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio. In this session, we're presented with an exclusive guest mix from one of the scene's legends: the producer, vocalist, and DJ known as SAGE.
SAGE (aka LAURA TOTTEN) was a world-renowned DRUM+BASS producer and DJ based in SAN FRANCISCO from 1997 to 2004. Retiring from the scene 11 years ago, and since relocating to her original home of BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND, she's now back in full force for 2015 with a slew of new releases lined up. She'll also be making a return to the STATES this coming September and October for a number live shows which feature her own live vocals over a set of original tracks and collaborations.
A multifaceted composer, musician, producer and DJ, SAGE plays several musical instruments (including drums and mandolin), dabbles with commercial composing, sings in a jazz duo and choirs, and facilitates youth and community workshops in her hometown of BELFAST. She was the very first female sponsor for the DC SHOES company and also added professional fashion model to her ever-growing list of accomplishments and talents. In 2001, she formed PHYLUM RECORDINGS with partner SUSIE LEE and then-DJ partner UFO!. The label released 4 vinyl 12's including a track from revered TECHNO producer JOHN TEJADA.
In 2004, after seven years continuous DJ gigs, playing almost nightly for months at a time, and dealing with the passing of her father, SAGE began an eleven year break from the scene to reconnect with friends and family, and ultimately, venture into different styles of music and a variety of creative outlets. Perfectly at home being a multi-disciplinary artist, SAGE has found a new breath of life creating a musical output that crosses many scenes, styles and tempos.
Currently, she writes TECH HOUSE tracks under her birth name "LAURA TOTTEN" and has releases out on UK-based TWISTED RECORDINGS. 2015 also sees new DRUM+BASS releases from SAGE due out soon on BELFAST-based label ANAMORPHIC. Featuring a number of IRISH musicians, ANAMORPHIC is also proud to add legendary producers CALIBRE and ZERO T to its growing roster of artists.
Join us as we're treated to the debut of the first studio mix in 11 years from SAGE (which will feature all original tracks, collabs, and remixes) presented exclusively on 'THE GREENROOM.' Tune in!!
