SOPHIE

DJ Sophie, full name Sophie van Riel, was born in Etten-Leur oktober 1975, with a Belgian mother and a Dutch father. In 2008 she left Brabant to settle herself in Haarlem. In the beginning of the 90’s, young Sophie got into the new sound of House music and was instantly caught. She started to collect vinyl and wanted to become a DJ. In the middle of the 90’s she played many styles of dance music mainly on private parties. In the early 2000’s Sophie took a short break in her carreer.

In 2008 Sophie came back and more then ever determined to become as DJ. It is her passion, her life. Nowadays she’s playing CD’s instead of vinyl and has developed her own style of sound. With this fully matured style Sophie is more fanatic than before. The underground sound from the 90’s is the inspiration for her steady sound. Sophie translates the old vibe and atmosphere of it with the sounds of the present.

Depending on the events and parties she’s at, Sophie plays a (deep) House / Tech-House / Techno oriented sound. It is a warm mix of melodious, touching rhythm and a catchy groove. No hard house and mainstream hits, but complaisant quality underground sound.

Sophie performed at local clubs as well as Stalker, Sugar Factory, LVC and on the beach at Woodstock69. She also she played at City Radio Breda, Electronation Radio and XT3 Techno Radio, which was a real pleasure and resulted in many positive responses. In march 2010 Sophie won the Female DJ Contest in Amsterdam at club Escape. Today Sophie is more busy than before. In the near future she’d like to play at bigger parties and festivals and hope enjoy much people with hear sound.
