Bio

"I saw Sofie support Gaslamp Killer in Sydney, Australia two weekends back, and she absolutely murdered it." - Extra Music News "Producer, musician and all round bleep nerd, Sofie Loizou is an artistic shaper of electronic audio, ever sensitive to mood and nuance. With serious electronic production credits to her name, Sofie Loizou is just as uncompromising behind the decks as she is in the studio. Expect a serious education!" - St Jerome’s Laneway Festival "Sofie Loizou again was the standout for the Dubshack. She was so popular that when Paul Fraser could not attend due to radio commitments, Sofie was asked to fill in for Void on New Years Eve, playing a slickly mixed and selected set of future beat goodness." - Peats Ridge Festival "Sofie Loizou, representing Red Bull Music Academy, is known for her diverse and unique take on Dj’ing and pulling out lost treasures from her rich musical background." - Void A vibrant face staking out her turf in the underground electronic scene and beyond, Sofie Loizou brings together beautifully nuanced electronics with a polished live presence. A classically trained musician, composer, producer and media artist, her many talents are complimented by a tireless studio work ethic and a finely tuned political sensibility. With a background as an events organizer in Sydney’s arts and music community, her unique vision already earned her a place in the Red Bull Music Academy, as well performances alongside electronic maestros like Martyn, The Gaslamp Killer, Flying Lotus, Harmonic 313, Kode 9 and many more. She’s also been embraced by some of Australia’s finest electronic connoisseur events, including St Jerome’s Laneway Festival and Peats Ridge Festival. 2012 will see Sofie stepping up into the international spotlight, starting with a performance at Croatia’s renowned Outlook Festival, one of Europe’s leading events for bass music and culture. This consolidates her appearance earlier in her career at the seminal Sonar Festival in Barcelona, as well as the Gogbot Festival in the Netherlands last year. With a slew of early vinyl singles already under her belt, Australian imprint Sub Continental Dub released digital EP titled Forward Backward, under the mysterious Anomie alias, June 2012. Distributed internationally by Cargo Records UK this release sees Sofie flirting with a more bass-heavy, dancefloor-ready approach. Response To EP: “Listened to your EP!! It's really amazing.” - Tokimonsta “Def playing this on Sunday's Sound Lab - new EP from Sofie Loizou aka ANOMIE.” - Fenella Kernebone “#nowplaying Anomie - Protest In Morocco (9:51pm) Some great beats courtesy of Sydney's @SofieLoizou.” – Home And Hosed, Triple J This follows on from Sofie’s debut 2010 EP Millions, which has already garnered her rave reviews from online tastemakers like Resident Advisor. A beautifully restrained piece of music that’s a perfect reflection of Sofie’s subtle charms, Millions is a sign of many wonderful things to come, further evidenced by the high standards of her unreleased work that is yet to see the light of day; a restrained musical beauty destined to endure.

Thought it was worth throwing in a few cents on how excellent this one is too. The production is really thick and hard to shake once the bass rolls in.
