MATHEW JONSON (Live)
As many of you may know our friend @Luciano had a really bad accident a couple of days ago.
We all have been hoping he feels better and be able to perform this Sunday at @Sophie but unfortunately we recently received the news from Luciano’s management team and he wont be performing in any of his shows this weekend due to the accident.
Sadly, that means he won’t be with us this Sunday because he needs to rest and get back in shape.
We have been working non-stop since we knew about this to find a replacement for Luciano but as you may know he is no one easy to replace and even less in such short notice.
We are deeply sad to communicate we will be cancelling the closing event of our first season this Sunday and we are deeply sorry for any inconvenience we have caused. If you have already bought tickets or reserved a VIP table..
Don’t worry we will refund everyone as soon as possible.
We want to send a huge message to thank every single person that has shown us their unconditional support and love since day one.
We are really heartbroken because we wanted to share one last special evening with all of you and celebrate life once more all together before the summer ends.
We will be back next year to keep on working, keep on pushing, keep on believing and keep on delivering what we love most, quality music and good vibes.
The Sophie Team,
While honing his craft in the sweaty European underground clubs of the turn of the last century, Luciano has become a true benchmark for excellence and devotion to electronic music. Remaining true to his juvenile passion, his enchanting charisma has remained untouched despite his never ending face-off with ever-growing challenges.
Born in Switzerland and raised in Santiago, Luciano fell under the spell of Detroit first and second wave of producers. Determined to share his passion for techno, he spun records in clubs where disgruntled rock fans stubbed out cigarettes on his vinyl. But Luciano kept going, gradually gaining a loyal following and propelling dance music into uncharted territory in Chile.
Mathew Jonson (Live)
Mathew Jonson really is one of a kind. He’s developed one of the most distinctive voices in electronic dance music: when you hear one of Jonson’s tracks, you almost immediately know it’s his. And yet there’s no mistaking any given track for another. His music offers a rare fusion of populist intensities and nuanced musicality. With a deep understanding of the necessities of the dance floor and the universal laws of house and techno, he has thrown out the rule book time and time again, introducing tricks learned from electro and even drum’n’bass into the clubs, and loading their B-sides with tracks that do whatever they want.
Sonja Moonear is representative of many DJs at the top level of the so-called minimal scene. She’s relaxed about publicity, slick behind the decks and, perhaps most importantly, has a keen eye for the dance floor.
And just like most of the others, Moonear doesn’t release much music, which means she’s made her way to the top by simply playing great DJ sets. Moonear cut her teeth as a DJ in Geneva around the turn of the century as a resident at the city’s key club, Weetamix.
Coming from Romania, Adrian Niculae a.k.a. Priku established himself as a hard working and passionate music creator. He is a member of Sunrise booking since 2007, making his way up to the big gigs through many noticeable Sunwaves performances. He released on labels such as [a:rpia:r] , All Inn, Fabric, Concrete Music and Only 300 Family, his name is also on Cocoon Green & Blue 2011 and Cocoon Heroes compilations.
Never give a sword to a man who can’t dance…
Of Turkish origins but born and raised just outside of Zurich, Alci’s entry into DJing came via Hip Hop and street culture, trying his hand at graffiti and breakdancing before discovering turntables. Igniting his passion for music, his taste has evolved over the years, shifting into the electronic world where he now places his sound between funky House grooves and minimalistic Techno. At the age of 17 he was already on the Zurich circuit and a resident dj at Club Supermarket.
