Essential New Artist - Saje / by Eric Lum

Happy New Year all!

We're ringing in the start of 2016 with our first New Artist introduction of the year - Saje.

Saje is a French duo that enjoys a good balance of synths and R&B crooning. Saje was introduced to by our Tastemaker Yo Fu, who specializes in pointing out the best in electronic music.

Saje has begun to establish a steady buzz with the recent release of their song ‘FreeFallin’ Dreams’’ which will also appear on their upcoming EP of the same name. The EP will be released January 15th through the popular electronic/house French label Roche Musique which is also home to several artists such as Darius, FKJ and Karma Kid.

Saje’s music is a mixture of house-funk and some relaxing R&B. Their music is soothing yet cheerful - like those nights when you can fall asleep knowing you have no responsibilities to uphold the next day.

‘Freefallin’ Dreams’ was premiered by Spin Magazine and also circulated around Beats 1 Radio on Apple Music. Flying below the radar, they have racked up close to 4 million plays on SoundCloud, getting endorsed by the popular Seattle based electronic duo - Odesza along the way.

The buzz is fresh, but Saje is a group worth listening to, especially with the release of ‘Freefallin’ Dreams’ later this month. Thanks again to Yo Fu for the special intro.
