Sophie Bass - VIVEK001, Different sound/Galactic

  • Charlie S
  • Sophie Bass

Sophie was commissioned for this cover in February 2019 by V.I.V.E.K - the artist, label owner, selector and man behind one of London’s most important dances, SYSTEM. This record is a classic sound system banger, with heavy dub influences and organic sounds. Sophie’s piece depicts a ritualistic dance of freedom, with the Sound System stack worshipped and surrounded by a forest. Her use of colour signals a mystical quality to this scene, also drawing on symbolism to highlight the magic of this scene.
