Una morte tragica, improvvisa. Scompare a soli 34 anni Sophie Xeon, producer e musicista scozzese, morta per una caduta accidentale mentre si trovava ad Atene. Il management: “following a sudden accident. At this time respect and privacy for the family is our priority. We would also ask for respect for her fanbase, and to treat the private nature of this news with sensitivity. Sophie was a pioneer of a new sound, one of the most influential artists in the last decade. Not only for ingenious production and creativity but also for the message and visibility that was achieved. An icon of liberation”.
La sua label Transgressive la ricorda così: “True to her spirituality she had climbed up to watch the full moon and accidentally slipped and fell. She will always be here with us”.
Sophie aveva debuttato sulla lunga distanza nel 2018 con l’album ‘Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides’ (seguito della raccolta ‘Product’) che aveva ricevuto una nomination ai Grammy nella categoria “best dance/electronic album”. Tra le sue collaborazioni ricordiamo anche quelle con Madonna, Arca, Flume, Vince Staples, Let’s Eat Grandma, Charli XCX e Kim Petras.
Sophie was a stellar producer, a visionary, a reference. She rebelled against the narrow, normative society by being an absolute triumph, both as an artist and as a woman. I can’t believe she is gone. We need to honor and respect her memory and legacy. Cherish the pioneers. pic.twitter.com/3kyRl1KabY
