UK producer, Sophie, is good at staying anonymous. To Sophie, “the music is not about where someone grew up or what they look like against a wall…instead of saying here’s my music and this is what I look like. Nobody cares.” Without assigning a sound to a face, the music is consistent with his mysteriousness: a blend of trap, house, and pop unidentifiable into any one genre.
Sophie’s aesthetic is mostly colorful, full of different textures and the sounds themselves could be where “future pop,” evocative of Aqua, comes into discussion. Bringing forth singles “Lemonade” or “Bipp” off of Numbers, these are easily the year’s most infectious tracks and best kept secret. Sophie is effervescent, allowing us to “feel better” as promised.
Sophie will be performing with Panda Bear, Ejecta, Doss, and Blues Control at Gorilla vs. Bear 4 next Friday, September 12th. Tickets are available to purchase here.
