SAGE SUEDE's "Renegade" is a gender-bending nirvana. This album is a decadent journey through pulsating beats, sky-high synths, and hypnotic sounds. As the only songwriter across his releases, SAGE SUEDE has forged an experimental electronic style utterly his own.
"Renegade" opens with "New Diet," featuring Girlxhighlight, electronic candy of deep keys, and huge synths make you dance instantly, a stunning smash through and through. "My Dank is Deadly" rumbles forward at a breakneck pace, synths screaming as you barrel down the highway. The beat-focused "Thief in Blue" has a trance-inducing quality, synth stabs and whistles like a melody from beyond.
"Just Trippin (Sugar Baby in the Kitchen)" blends hip-hop beats with electronics, fun and alluring. "Lil Peach" with Honey-B-Sweet is retro bliss, a vogue-worthy fantasy. "Weed Cookies - SAGE alt Funk Remix" syncs samples and spicy synths for dancing through the night. "Gushy Kush Girl" melds r&b and hip-hop with dreamy soundscapes and liberation.

SAGE SUEDE crafts a sensuality both playful and subversive, finding a twisted pop brilliance in the annihilation of form.
