About this item

**REPRESS**

Surprise release on Numbers from Sophie. Going on one of those trancey, mainroom, bass-heavy R&B refixes is "Bipp" on the A-side. A saccharin sweet vocal melody coupled with massive bass stabs, squealing sine tones and huge synth washes. It's the sound of a thousand or so kids on drugs going absolutely nuts in the sunshine with people old enough to know better (Matt!?) joining in the fun at the same time. On the flip we get bassy, druggy chaos for the more die-hard heads on “Elle”. Using a grime influenced sound palette and a half-tempo groove, the track rattles through the frequencies with a surprisingly melodic, emotive undercurrent. Recommended.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Available once again. The first four Sophie EPs have become cult artefacts of leftfield-dance-pop. Last chance saloon if you missed 'em the first time!
