SOPHIE Biography

Samuel Long is a London-based electronic music producer who works under the stage name Sophie (stylised as SOPHIE). He came to prominence in 2013 with his single "Bipp"/"Elle" and released "Lemonade"/"Hard" the following year. He has worked closely with artists from the PC Music label and produced for acts including Charli XCX, Liz, Le1f, QT, Madonna and Namie Amuro. Sophie's music has been described as an exaggerated take on pop music, and features prominent high-pitched vocals and an attention to synthesized electronic textures.

Sophie was in a band named Motherland (Sabine Gottfried, Matthew Lutz-Kinoy and Marcella Dvsi) and later collaborated with his bandmate Matthew Lutz-Kinoy on a series of performance works. In 2011 he scored the short film Dear Mr/Mrs by Dutch team Freudenthal/Verhagen. Sophie became involved with artists on the PC Music label after encountering Dux Kidz, a project between A. G. Cook and Danny L Harle.

He released his debut single "Nothing More to Say" in February 2013. Its follow-up "Bipp"/"Elle" was released on Numbers later that year. "Bipp" drew attention from music critics for omitting a traditional drum beat to prominently feature a bouncy bassline. The song received attention from music critics, topping XLR8R's year-end list and placing 17 on Pitchfork Media's. Pitchfork later ranked "Bipp" 56 on its list of the best tracks from 2010–2014. B-side "Elle" features a more powerful drum beat, drawing comparisons to TNGHT and Rustie.
