Intro: Sophie: Future pop bass music



Last week, ‘BIPP’, a track with a bouncy rubbery-bassline and a high-pitched girl singing ““I can make you feel better, if you want to,” over the top was posted by the Glasgow Numbers label. The work of a so far hidden Scottish producer Sophie now based in the metropolis of London, it’s the kind of track that would seriously divide opinion.

Sophie – ‘BIPP’

Sophie is actually a male producer/composer, real name Sam, whose Sophie project is a deliberate attempt to make super-fun challenging bass music. “I try to make music which is fun to dance to—that should be the loudest voice talking,” he was recently quoted as saying. “I think it would be extremely exciting if music could take you on the same sort of high-thrill 3-minute ride as a theme park roller coaster.”

Debut/previous release ‘Nothing More To Say’/’EEHHH’ on Huntleys & Palmers was equally beguiling, was like a Rustie take on synthpop while the B-side to ‘BIPP’, ‘Elle’ is a wonky dubstep trap track. ‘Nothing More to Say’ has a Jackmaster remix too.

Sophie has recieved support from Jimmy Edgar, Skream and Actress. Sophie will have a release on Actress’ Werk Discs soon. Sophie is currently DJing around Europe. ‘Bipp’/’Elle’ is out now.
