The multi-talented SOFI (Some Other Female Interest) is no newcomer. Having earned her stripes working with some of the biggest names in the music industry, she debuted on Mau5trap as the voice behind Deadmau5 singles ‘SOFI Needs A Ladder’ and ‘One Trick Pony’ from his globally acclaimed album ‘4X4=12’. Now, SOFI returns to the label to deliver the explosive ‘Locked And Loaded’ EP. Featuring three dynamic collaborations with some of the most exciting electronic talent around, SOFI’s unique voice, lyricism and versatility shine through.
Leading the EP is ‘Broken Souvenirs’, a collaboration with Brighton-based dubstep renegades Millions Like Us, who have remixed the likes of Hurts, Morning Parade and N-Dubz and received support from Radio 1. Here they deliver a powerhouse instrumental, building on a wave of delicate piano and swirling synths before dropping into a sonic onslaught of spiraling bass lines, pummeling drums and euphoric synths while SOFI’s spine tingling vocals soar through the mix.
With a busy few months on the cards for SOFI, including a North American tour supporting Deadmau5 alongside Excision, Tommy Lee & DJ Aero, the LA-based songstress still finds the time to showcase her exquisite vocal talents on her debut solo outing for Mau5trap.
