Nu Disco – Nu Territory

Ok, so when I first discovered there was a genre called ‘Nu Disco’ I admit I wasn’t quick to jump onboard.
I have always been a great believer in Disco quite biasly, and it took me a while to budge and even venture into the realms of Nu Disco. What I did find though after eventually caving to my curiosity, was that there was a nostalgic audible theme. There definitely were very obvious infusions and renewed interest in 1970s and 1980s disco, early to mid-1980s Italo disco and French house, as well as other synthesizer-heavy European dance styles. This is what won me over. The different fusions of culture that emulated from this genre were quite delightful to the ears and extremely reminiscent of some of my most favourite disco flavours, rinsed through Europe.

Disco lives on, taking on new wavforms.

Sophia Sin

Having spent a large part of her formative years experiencing the pure, personal joys of merging vinyl together in her bedroom whilst amassing an aural arsenal of spellbinding records, Sophia made a fateful decision to let go of what she had (the epic collection) in order to finance her expansive vision (sharing and creating music that means something),
That leap of trust has been rewarded – aside from music festivals and other special events, Sophia holds down wheel-spinning duties at multiple venues, including her almost five year residency at legendary Melbourne institution Revolver Upstairs. Her burgeoning reputation (and infectious enthusiasm between the monitors) has also given Sophia the chance to share line-ups with some of the most respected international names in the industry, including Stimming, Maceoplex, Alexkidd, Jay Lumen and Mark Henning.

And now the next step has recently been taken in Sophia’s music affair: a left field production career that eschews the usual ‘paint by numbers’ playbook (and strictly-enforced ‘genre defining traits’) of cookie cutter releases.

In creating a soothing-but-not-saccharine alchemy of her voice and her own music recordings, she has remained true to her diverse inner soundscape whilst assembling a “world-ly” style that funkily-straddles the border between dubstep and triphop, with a loving nod to tech and deep house thrown into the brew for good measure. With her first hit “Singing In The Rain” reaching the top 10 in the beatport Chillout charts, she is only getting warmed up to bigger and brighter musings.
