The openly transgender music producer had worked with artists such as Madonna and Charli XCX.
Sophie, the Grammy-nominated Scottish disc jockey, producer and recording artist who had worked with the likes of Madonna and Charli XCX, has died following an accident in the Greek capital of Athens. She was 34.
The musician, whose full name was Sophie Xeon, died in the early hours of Saturday morning, according to a statement from U.K. label Transgressive.
“Tragically, our beautiful Sophie passed away this morning after a terrible accident,” the statement said. “True to her spirituality she had climbed up to watch the full moon and accidentally slipped and fell.”
Sophie became famous in 2013, with the release of “Bipp.” She followed that up in 2015 with a number of super-popular singles on Product.
She got a Grammy nom for best dance/electronic album with “Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides.” One reviewer called the album a combination of “terror, sadness and pleasure.”Sophie was transgender and talked about her journey in 2018, saying, “Transness is taking control to bring your body more in line with your soul and spirit so the two aren’t fighting against each other and struggling to survive.” She went on to say, “It means you’re not a mother or a father — you’re an individual who’s looking at the world and feeling the world.”
