SOPHIE Debuts New Song "Hard" on Rinse FM

Last week, we premiered UK producer SOPHIE's upcoming single "Lemonade." The musical grab bag that he pulls from draws comparisons to nearly every kind of hyper-kinetic pop style: K-Pop, J-Pop, Eurodance at its most chaotic, and even turn of the millennium American/UK boybandisms. Late last week on Rinse FM, alongside Danny L Harle and Soda Plains, SOPHIE dropped "Hard," the b-side to "Lemonade." The song appears around the 1:22:55 mark and follows the similar distorted pattern of "Lemonade," but leaves behind the 110% pop bounce joy of its sibling single. Instead, it's a bit rougher with a sample riffing on different kind of hard topics from partying, platform shoes and latex gloves. Stream the mix below and don't miss SOPHIE on the road.
