A Sit Down With DJ Sophie Sugar
The UKs Sophie Sugar has become one of the worlds hottest female producers in the last few years. She has the right name with Sugar, because not only is she sweet looking, but her music is extremely tasty. She has musical talent as she played piano for eight years and was infected with the vinyl bug at the age of six. As a teen she started visiting clubs and fell in love with trance.
"Being a female DJ is not just about looking pretty but not being able to spin good! You have to keep up with the scene, you have to promote your own self and - again - love what you do!"
Which DJ's/Producers or Musicians to you look up to most?
There are sooo many! I'm a huge fan of John Williams who composed the music for Star Wars, ET, Superman & more recently the Harry Potter films - i can't quite express in words how his music makes me feel. Also Thomas Newman, Hans Zimmer & many other composers. On the trance scene Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Chicane, Agnelli & Nelson, John O'Callaghan, Guiseppe Ottaviani - and many others.
You're one of a select few top Female DJ's in the world, Do you find that most guys are intimidated by your success as a DJ?
Ha ha - no - most of my male friends are DJs as well so i'm used to being within that kind of circle and they're used to me doing what i do so it doesn't seem like too much of a big deal!
