Sofie Loizou aka Anomie plays Outlook Festival, Croatia, 2012.
A vibrant new face staking out her turf in the underground electronic scene and beyond, Sofie Loizou brings together beautifully nuanced electronics with a polished live presence. A classically trained musician, composer, producer and media artist, her many talents are complimented by a tireless studio work ethic and a finely tuned political sensibility.
With a background as an events organizer in Sydney's arts and music community, her unique vision already earned her a place in the Red Bull Music Academy, as well performances alongside electronic maestros like Martyn, The Gaslamp Killer, Flying Lotus, Harmonic 313, Kode 9 and many more. She's also been embraced by some of Australia's finest electronic connoisseur events, including St Jerome's Laneway Festival and Peats Ridge Festival.
2012 saw Sofie stepping up into the international spotlight with a spot on the lineup for Croatia's renowned Outlook Festival, one of Europe's leading events for bass music and culture. This consolidates her appearance earlier in her career at the seminal Sonar Festival in Barcelona, as well as the Gogbot Festival in the Netherlands last year.
With a slew of early vinyl singles already under her belt, Australian imprint Sub Continental Dub went out with a new release, a digital EP titled Forward Backward, under the mysterious Anomie alias. Released June 2012 and distributed internationally by Cargo Records UK, this release sees Sofie flirting with a more bass-heavy, dancefloor-ready approach. The international bass scene is advised to keep their eyes peeled!
Other Outlook Festival artists in 2012 include Fat Freddy's Drop, Jah Shaka, Phife (a Tribe Called Quest), Digital Mystikz -- Mala & Coki, Scuba, The Beatnuts, Gold Panda, Congo Natty & Family, Goldie, Kode 9, Joker, Hatcha, N-type, Pearson Sound, Loefah, The Bug, Addison Groove, Kryptic Minds and many more.
