Bridging the gap between untamed techno hues and nostalgic recollections of ultimate electro worlds, fused with jazz and soul notions, South African born artist, label owner and promoter SOPHIE FORREST lands her spot with finesse. Applying a musical palette that grasps varying influences, the air from Melbourne based Sophie Forrest is welcome, whether it be in the studio, before a dance floor or in the kitchen as a small-batch hot sauce aficionado. As one of the nation’s few transgender DJs and producers, she too champions trans-representation across the Australian dance community, celebrating equality, ambition and talent in music.
Mid 2021 delivered Sophie Forrest’s well-crafted, two track EP ‘Potato’ on her self curated record label Body Positive Music, one of the first in Australia to focus entirely on supporting the GNC/trans/POC and femme community of producers. Earlier in the year her ‘Don’t Touch My Booty’ EP dropped, shortly after the debut release on her label coming from fellow artist Yokelust. Exploring untouched corners on dance floors throughout the electronic circuit in Melbourne and beyond, Sophie Forrest has taken her catalogue and pinned guest spots across the map, while also having supported the likes of global tastemakers including Honey Dijon, Ben UFO, Boris, Roi Perez and DJ Sprinkles.
