MuseLink Spotlight on DJ Saige
Written by Willie Rivera
“Based out of the East village in New York City, DJ Saige is quickly making a name for herself as one of New York City’s top DJs. Classically trained in piano since the age of five, both in Ireland and New York, Saige’s diverse background in music has enabled her to incorporate various sounds into her DJing. From popular 80’s house music to contemporary Hip Hop, Saige’s artful ability to understand her crowds allows her to play music that caters to everyone, regardless of age. All of this culminates into Saige’s impressive musicality, which got her noticed by Hot 97’s DJ Funkmaster Flex.
DJ Saige has performed in many of New York City’s top venues such as Pacha,Webster Hall, Liberty Theatre, and Stage 48. In addition, she has opened for well-known artists including Fetty Wap, Fabolous, Jodeci, and T.I. In 2016, DJ Saige joined Hot 97’s Street Team. As a member of the street team, Dj Saige performs at various Hot 97 sponsored events to help promote the station.” Bio from DJ Saige’s website.
I sat here, thinking of what to write for quite sometime. That bio pretty much sums everything up, so I decided to use it as an introduction instead of trying to write my own. The bio touches on many of DJ Saige’s accolades and some of her background, but I feel as though bios are generally generic, full of accomplishments and fluff. What truly makes DJ Saige an amazing artist and DJ? In my opinion it’s not her accomplishments, it’s her work ethic and presence. I have been to multiple events where DJ Saige spun on the one’s and two’s, and I can say it is riveting. She comes in week in and week out, performing at multiple venues, always with a crowd and always putting on a show. I don’t know any other DJ that can have an in the cut bar turned up on a wednesday! Her hard work and marketing skills have taken her far, and there’s no doubt in my mind that she will continue to go further in the industry.
