In a heart-wrenching turn of events, the electronic music scene mourns the loss of its groundbreaking artist and producer, SOPHIE Xenon, who tragically passed away at 34. Known for transcending musical boundaries, SOPHIE‘s untimely demise occurred following a distressing accident in Athens early Saturday morning (January 30, 2021). According to her publicist, Ludovica Ludinatrice, SOPHIE was embarking on a journey to embrace the full moon’s beauty in a mountainous area of Athens when a fatal slip from the rocks claimed her life.

Ludovica Ludinatrice expressed the depth of this loss in a statement, saying,

It is with profound sadness that I announce the passing of SOPHIE this morning around 4 am in Athens, following a sudden accident.

Further amplifying the void left by SOPHIE‘s departure, her record label, Future Classic, echoed the sentiment, highlighting her irreplaceable influence on the music world.

The company of her own, Future Classic, shared the statement as follows:

SOPHIE‘s innovative approach to electronic music reshaped the genre, blending house, trance, and pop into a fresh, captivating sound. Her talent did not go unnoticed, capturing the admiration of music icons like Madonna, leading to a collaborative effort on the hit “Bitch I’m Madonna” in 2015.

Beyond her musical genius, SOPHIE was a trailblazer in the LGBTQ+ community, proudly living as a transgender woman. She broke barriers and earned widespread acclaim, securing a Grammy nomination and clinching the title for Best EDM Album with her debut, “Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides“. SOPHIE‘s legacy is a testament to her exceptional artistry and the indelible mark she left on music and culture.
