International Women’s Day: SOPHIE by Abyss X

Pop Experimental

Today is International Women’s Day, an annual celebration of the cultural, political and socioeconomic achievements of women. It’s also a day to reflect on the progress made, and still needed, in achieving gender equality. We’re commemorating the day with a three-part mix series dedicated to late musical trailblazers. 

On 30 January 2021, the world was rocked by the death of SOPHIE. 

The Glasgow-born producer was one of a kind. A forward-thinker in every way, SOPHIE united the underground with the mainstream with ease, finesse and boundless creativity, forever changing the face of pop music in the process. In our remembrance essay penned in the wake of SOPHIE’s death, journalist Sean O’Neill described the former Crack Magazine cover star as “one of the most influential, and vital, producers of our time. An artist who was so far ahead that perhaps we’re still catching up”.

SOPHIE vision – and studio time – was shared with an array of artists over the course of one cosmic career. SOPHIE worked with everyone from the PC Music roster and the label’s founder A.G. Cook to Charli XCX, Madonna and Vince Staples. The pop provocateur also linked up with Crete-born interdisciplinary artist and producer Abyss X, remixing the artist’s 2020 track Animosity

SOPHIE’s remix features in this special tribute mix curated by Abyss X. The mix also features tracks from SOPHIE’s landmark debut album, Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides.

Reflecting on SOPHIE’s legacy, Abyss X says: “Music is an eternal force that gets humanity through its darkest times. SOPHIE knew her music held that power – the power to uplift so many people, and that was SOPHIE’s purpose.”
