Version 4

Sophie Sugar is a 25-year-old trance DJ and Producer from the UK. She has released four singles, “Fearing Nothing” in 2003, “Call of Tomorrow” in 2005, “Isis” in 2006 (released on e-tcr), and “Fallen Too Far” in 2007. “Call of Tomorrow” was featured in the A State of Trance 2005 compilation, with her new single “Day Seven” featured on A State of Trance 2007.

Sophie Sugar is one of the most exciting names on the UK trance scene at the moment. Sophie’s style ranges from progressive through to driving, uplifting trance. Her passion for both the music and mixing it is clear to every crowd, and her well structured and emotive sets are fast building her a reputation as one of the UK’s rising trance stars.

Sophie was always a music lover - playing the piano for 8 years and collecting records from the tender age of 6. In her teens, she became involved in the club scene and fell in love with trance music. After experimenting with mixing she realised that she was hooked and in 1999 began DJing.

After 4 years spent developing her own sound both behind the decks and in the studio, Sophie’s career began to escalate rapidly. In 2004, she was named winner of the prestigious Gallery/DJ Magazine DJ competition and her track ‘Call of Tomorrow’ was picked up on by widely respected Dutch trance label, Galactive.

In 2005, ‘Call of Tomorrow’ received support from many of the world’s top DJs including Paul Van Dyk, who featured it in his top 10 in DJ Mag and Mixmag, and Armin Van Buuren who chose to feature it on ‘A State of Trance 2005’. Sophie was billed as One to Watch in IDJ magazine. She began playing for several of the UKs leading nights including the Gallery, Passion and Serious and guest presented the Gallery show for Ministry of Sound radio.

In 2006, Sophie’s career went from strength to strength. In April, she was delighted to be nominated in the Mixmag Future Hero category for the Trance Awards 2006, securing her status as a serious player within the UKs up and coming trance scene. Her follow-up track, Isis, was then released on UK trance label E-TCR and received heavy support from Paul Van Dyk (who played it a record 3 weeks in a row on his Radio Fritz show!), Armin Van Buuren, Above and Beyond and many more and was given rave reviews in the dance music press, including 5 out of 5 in DJ Mag. She also spent the year playing to a rapidly growing worldwide fan base with gigs in Canada, Morocco, Abu Dhabi, China, Europe and more.

Most recently, Sophie’s massive new track ‘Fallen Too Far’ was signed to world premier trance label Armada. The track received heavy support from Armin Van Buuren and Paul Van Dyk and featured in top 10 download charts on numerous dance music download websites. Sophie was then featured as One To Watch for 2007 by Mixmag on their ‘Keep An Eye on’ Page.

Looking to the future, Sophie’s productions for 2007 look set to further cement her worldwide reputation as a respected new producer. Her next EP, ‘Day Seven’/’Sense of Connection’ will be released on A State of Trance in the summer and already looks set to be another huge release.

Gig-wise, Sophie continues to spread her melodic sounds across the world having just announced a 10 date tour of Indonesia from May to June. You can also catch Sophie at some of the UK’s top nights over the coming months including Serious at the Cross and Vaccine at the Gallery.

With her own distinct brand of driving, melodic trance - both in her productions and DJ sets - Sophie Sugar continues to secure her place in the future of the worldwide trance scene.
