| Winter Culture | In The Mix | 12 – 2 Thurs |

Winter tends to bring us feelings of fatigue and, at times we find ourselves riding the inward spiral, making it harder to feel motivated and energetic. On the upside, it gives the music seekers more time to dig, and less time to fomo. Because unlike summer, going outside is often met with much careful thought, weighing up the pro’s and con’s of a trip across the frozen Tundra; I mean, Melbourne.

I find winter much more quiet and insular therefor giving us more of a reason to listen. And many cultures have their own traditions, come the dreaded cold spell.

Though I find here in Melbourne, a kind of magic that emerges during the colder months. Warmly lit up jazz bars, heaving underground events, and the deeper into the winter scene we get, the deeper the music.

This Thursday is an ode to the gathering of the Melbourne tribe, a carefully selected set of tunes that will facilitate the notion of ‘going deeper’.

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.
