Sophia Saze (GE)
Beginning her creative journey in her formative years with classical music and dance training, Sophia Saze later became engulfed by electronic dance music. Getting to know this artist, it is easy to understand that she comes from a solid and natural musical foundation. Tbilisi, Georgia born and internationally bred, she’s now based in Brooklyn, New York. Saze launched her record label Dusk & Haze in 2017, with the first installment coming in the form of her own ‘Solace’ LP [D&H001], which included remixes from Benjamin Damage & Umwelt. The productions stem from techno, yet her musical versatility draws from a variety of genre influences, ranging from electro to krautrock, ambient to industrial, and acid to garage - showing her complete range and fluidity as a musician. 2017 also saw Sophia being signed to renowned label Get Physical where her track ‘Fall’ appears on their Words Don’t Come Easy Compilation, showcasing a more soulful downtempo side of the producer. She’s also put forth releases on esteemed imprints including Ghostly International & Oktave Records. Equally as much as she is a producer, she’s also a DJ. Sophia Saze shapes the records she chooses for her sets into a carefully sculpted and characteristic groove. Keeping the journey on the border of house and techno, including electro and more spaced-out broken beat moments, she keeps the beat, the floor, and the dancers intact, always heading forward. Sophia is currently between her studio and touring schedule. She has a full release schedule lined up for this year, including her debut album on KINGDOMS, and various singles, whilst displaying her innate ability as A&R as she welcomes new releases on her imprint D&H. 2019 will also see the premiere of her live a/v.
