'The First Lady of Trance' - Armin Van Buuren, 2009
'The UK's Foremost Female Trance Producer' - DJ Mag 2009
Sophie Sugar is one of the shining stars of the global trance scene. An established international DJ in her own right and now making waves around the world as a talented and exciting producer, it is easy to see where this young lady is heading.
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, fell in love with trance music and began DJing.
In 2004 she was delighted to win the prestigious Gallery/DJ Magazine DJ competition.
In 2005 and 2006, Sophie released the hugely successful tracks 'Call of Tomorrow' and 'Isis', on respected labels Galactive and ATCR, both of which received support from many of the world's top DJs including Paul Van Dyk and Armin Van Buuren.
Her career went from strength to strength as she played to a growing worldwide fan base in areas such as Canada, Morocco, Abu Dhabi, China, Europe and at leading UK nights such as The Gallery, Serious and Passion.
In 2007, 'Fallen Too Far' became a worldwide smash hit after being signed to Armin Van Buuren's world-renowned label Armada. The track received heavy support from the world's A list trance DJs and was featured in top 10 download charts on numerous dance music download websites.
This was followed with 'Day Seven', which Armin chose to feature on 'A State of Trance 2007', 'Sense of Connection' and Sophie's very own interpretation of the Art of Trance anthem 'Madagascar'. All tracks were hugely successful, further enhancing Sophie's reputation as an exciting new producer with djs and fans worldwide and leading her to new areas across the world including a 10 date tour of Indonesia. She received continued support from the dance
music press throughout the year including being featured as 'One To Watch' by Mixmag.
In 2008, Sophie's name exploded with events around the world including Germany, The Czech Republic, the USA, Australia and New Zealand, the release of her incredible track 'Redemption' and the hugely successful Australian compilation 'Mixology 11'. She finished off the year in style playing to a 5,000 strong crowd in Johannesburg.
2009 saw the release of Sophie's hugely successful debut vocal track 'Beside You' featuring the haunting vocals of Rebecca Emely as well as the follow up to Redemption - 'Together' - which held the No.1 spot on Audiojelly for no less than 4 weeks in a row, the launch of her hugely popular 'Symphony' radio show on di.fm and events around the world from Vietnam to Argentina, Malta, Germany, Sweden, South Africa, Russia and more. She was honoured to be the only female to play at the incredible ASOT 400 events on a line-up of over 70 DJs.
With her own distinct brand of driving, uplifting trance - both in her productions and DJ sets - Sophie Sugar plays a very exciting part in the worldwide trance scene.
