“In light of SOPHIE’s recent passing, Stuart celebrates the visionary artist’s maximalist hyperpop album from 2015 Product. Setting the stage for SOPHIE’s later Grammy nominated album Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides, it was Product that first carved out an irresistible niche within electronic and pop music for the Scottish-born artist. Radically futuristic, the album features ecstatic chiptune vocals, pitch bent synths and glossy metallic production that clangs, snaps and collapses with extraordinary kinetic energy. The young auteur collaborated with Madonna as well as underground royalty like Arca, Charli XCX and Shygirl.
Also in the show, melodramatic Latin folk and experimental cello arrangements, field recordings made in the Australian outback and brooding rap odes to long nights and heavy mornings spent in England’s North.”
