BIOGRAPHY

Surrounded by classical music from a young age, Sofie Fatouretchi aka SOFIE started learning the violin at four years old. In her teens she won a place to study at the prestigious Vienna Conservatoire, decided to leave the course early to live between Los Angeles, New York and London. She became an integral member of the growing Boiler Room team and an NTS Radio resident DJ, and worked at Stones Throw for four years, bringing several artists to the label including Knxwledge, Mndsgn and Stimulator Jones. As a DJ, she played on lineups with the likes of Teebs and Dam-Funk, and in 2016, she curated the compilation Sofie’s SOS Tape for Stones Throw, which includes the track “Abeja”, her collaboration with Mndsgn.

Her self-produced debut album, Cult Survivor, is forthcoming on Stones Throw Records on June 26 and featuring songs that draw on an unexpected range of influences: French chanson, cult experimental musician Gary Wilson, ‘60s pop ballads.
