also it's not even 2 minutes wtf, i was hoping it was going to go somewhere @ the end

Brief but good I'd say.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 29 July 2014 04:34 (six years ago) link

Since bipp i haven't been impressed by his stuff, at all. however i can't get enough of bipp and i'm still anxiously waiting for the album to come out.

This is pretty hacky.

Better than Lemonade, I suppose. Still no Bipp.

omg this is waaay better (than lemonade)

dyl, Wednesday, 6 August 2014 00:11 (six years ago) link

when people say they really love "nothing more to say", do they actually mean the song "nothing more to say" or the youtube mashup of "nothing more to say / eeehhh" which i can't seem to find a purchasable mp3 of? (and which sounds different to the individual "nothing more to say" and "eeehhh" tracks?)

uxorious gazumping (monotony), Wednesday, 6 August 2014 01:26 (six years ago) link

That mashup was by Sophie, and was meant to be put up for free download on Annie Mac's soundcloud page:
https://soundcloud.com/annie-mac-presents/free-music-monday-sophie
Personally I prefer it to either track on their own.

Now a nice repayment would be if someone happened to have a rip of the Just Jam set / "Hey QT" lying around. Apparently it's a collab with A.G. Cook and based on the obvious PC Music influence on these new Sophie tracks a teamup between the two of them should go heavenly.

Champiness, Wednesday, 6 August 2014 04:52 (six years ago) link

Personally I prefer it to either track on their own.

So do I, which is why I'm wondering whether that's the track people are talking about when they profess their love for "Nothing More To Say".

It's not just a sandwiching together of the two songs - I think the frequency and bpm is slightly different too.

uxorious gazumping (monotony), Wednesday, 6 August 2014 06:05 (six years ago) link

I'm pretty sure people mean the widely-available original rather than the hard-to-find mashup. The original Nothing More To Say is his best track IMO. Not heard any of the recent ones though.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 6 August 2014 09:03 (six years ago) link

I'm pretty sure people mean the widely-available original rather than the hard-to-find mashup

The mashup has nearly 50k plays on youtube / 126k plays on soundcloud and was featured on Pitchfork. If anything I'd say it's the other way around.

belatedly listening to lemonade for the first time. it could actually be really good if it stuck to the hyper-sacharine-delirium-pop segment and got rid of the rest. but otherwise, its just a very weird throwaway. keep thinking there must be a better edit of it somewhere and that this is just a (terrible) teaser. hard is a tiny bit better though the vocals are still on a ting tings level of irritation and it just seems like someone is trying too hard/thinking theyre being hilariously challenging. reminds me a bit of raffertie.

nxd, Tuesday, 26 August 2014 16:19 (six years ago) link

So for those of you who missed it the Boiler Room stream was a lot of fun (excluding the long gaps where setup for the next act took too long and we were stuck with a minimal dj / random shots of the club accompanied by downtempo music). The "Sophie" performance featured some muscular girl up at the decks playing new tunes while the genuine article flitted about dressed as a security guard; the new stuff was pretty great, generally really uptempo (though I suppose he wouldn't unveil the downtempo stuff at a club gig). Also none of them ran under 2 minutes. :)
I've excerpted a few of my faves:
http://www46.zippyshare.com/v/27521424/file.html
http://www46.zippyshare.com/v/69964662/file.html
http://www55.zippyshare.com/v/9516052/file.html

The QT segment of the show was basically an in-club ad for the "energy elixir" (played over the speakers while she sat on a couch reading a magazine) followed by "Hey QT" - interestingly she seemed to be singing along even though her mic wasn't turned on. I've got that audio too:
http://www46.zippyshare.com/v/31601250/file.html

Champiness, Wednesday, 27 August 2014 23:21 (six years ago) link

Is the 'Get the the club at 2am / I'm gonna bang loads of men' track one of those? That was incredible.

Basically / I Don't Wanna Be / An mp3 / 3-2-0 kb / ps (Craigo Boingo), Wednesday, 27 August 2014 23:34 (six years ago) link

No, that's a different one - a remix of GFOTY's "Friday Night", the original of which I absolutely love:

I've also got the clip from his set (excerpted for your enjoyment):

Managed to snag a video of her Teragram show before it got flagged on Youtube, and suffice to say if she has an album on the way t' the material is there for it to be a killer.
Also her live thing is coming to NYC in Februrary 2018, which will probably have even more new stuff on the setlist:

You're all losing so many points on your progress bars (Champiness), Monday, 18 December 2017 04:35 (three years ago) link

I saw her live on Friday night and it was pretty mediocre - a trance breakdown that went nowhere for a good ten mins and then some bouncing David Guetta nonsense that used interesting sound design to disguise a lack of innovation

I remember when PC Music came on with Beautiful and Like You and I was excited by this new spin to club pop music. That stopped there, I never got into Sophie, and now it's quite strange to think that the few years since then was her career.

I wasn't intimately familiar with her work, but "Faceshopping" (song/video) was one of the most provocative things I'd encountered in pop in a long time. Seems like an important artist, terribly young to go.

eatandoph (Neue Jesse Schule), Saturday, 30 January 2021 16:24 (one month ago) link

I knew BIPP from our own poll a few years ago, but that's really the extent of it. This put the loss in a greater context for me.

If you don’t know the music and need a comparison Sophie had a Dilla like impact on that scene which will be felt for decades

I came across this spotify playlist entitled "every SOPHIE produced song on this damn site'

Fetchboy, Saturday, 30 January 2021 17:43 (one month ago) link

This is so sad. Pretty much my favourite producer of the 10s, and a genuinely exceptional performer.

The show at Heaven from just before the album (of which there are excerpts on Youtube) was thrilling. Not just the spectacle and fierce performance, but the atmosphere in the room was one of sheer joy. What SOPHIE represented for everyone there, in terms of owning their identity, made it such a celebratory night and the mixture of ecstatic pogoing and vogueing triggered by 'Immaterial' was something I'll always remember.

Outside of the playlist Fetchboy just linked, there's an incredible amount of unreleased and leaked material floating around. These are some of my favourites:

Ooh - this pre-dates or is of the same era as Bipp, you can hear the echoes throughout:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKiX91tZv50

Psalms (with fka Twigs) - this was leaked this year though must date from earlier, it was nommed in this year's tracks poll but as it isn't on Spotify I guess most people missed it:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sGu4yb_R_o

Banoffee - Count On You - not a leak or unreleased, but I don't think it's widely known that this is a SOPHIE co-production, just a really pretty song and the one I've been listening to most today:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BeBn4mCnP4

Twelves, Saturday, 30 January 2021 18:56 (one month ago) link

Astonishing sounds and delicious melodies, what a bright streak in the heavens, what a beacon. I’m sad for her and sad for us that we missed what’s next, and what’s ten steps down the road. She made pop new for me again.

ufo, Sunday, 31 January 2021 07:57 (one month ago) link

I had never really understood her music-- just felt like it wasn't my thing. Yesterday I listened to a bunch of her songs, and felt profound grief that I'd somehow missed something before, and that I wouldn't be able to enjoy more in the future. Then, last night, I had a lucid dream where I was a helper to a neuroatypical adult who was trying to communicate with their friend, another neuroatypical adult, through a Plexiglas screen, and the both of them were crying because they couldn't communicate properly, then 'Its Okay to Cry' started playing in the dream and I woke up sobbing.

Something in the air. Horrible news.

Great thoughts Ned, and loved the quote you singled out, the desire "to make the brightest, most intense, engaging thing." It started me thinking who else was doing that and the most obvious answer (apart from AG Cook of course) was Yasutaka Nakata (Perfume, Capsule, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu etc.). Does anyone know if SOPHIE and Nakata interacted? I was thrilled when Autechre did the first ever SOPHIE remix.
Also apologies for my use of "her" to refer to the artist upthread, I learned from Philip Sherburne's brilliant p4k piece that SOPHIE disliked both gendered and nonbinary pronouns. https://pitchfork.com/thepitch/remembering-sophies-radical-futurism/
