Heralded as a forward-thinking, envelope-pushing experimentalist whose sonic signature virtually refined modern conceptions of what it means to be inimitable, SOPHIE and her pioneering contributions to music advanced the landscape in a unique and transformative way. These are the sentiments not only of the Glasgow-born producer’s devoted following, but also of the countless artists across genres who took to Twitter to mourn the news of SOPHIE’s January 30 death, paying tribute to a creative and trans icon who changed the lives of many through her music and perspective.
Below, Moore Kismet, Dillon Francis, Sam Smith, and more remember the one-of-a-kind talent, whose mark on music is that of a permanent caliber, as time has already shown, and will continue to. Rest in peace, SOPHIE.
The 34-year-old’s most recent release, “UNISIL,” came just two days before her death and can also be streamed below.
