A SOPHIE-produced EP by Basside will be released next month.
Miami bass duo Que Linda and Caro Loka, AKA Basside, will drop their new EP 'Fuck It Up' next month, which has been produced by the late experimental pop visionary, SOPHIE.
After seeing the duo perform at Miami’s iii Points Festival in 2016, SOPHIE and Basside worked in the artist's LA studio on six tracks, which have been fan favourites and were played in sets from SOPHIE, as well as by Charli XCX, Jimmy Edgar, and Machinedrum.
Following SOPHIE's death in January this year, Basside, alongside New York imprint Sorry Records, shared 'NYC2MIA (SOPHIE Remix)' — a long time staple of the producer's DJ sets to raise funds for the Sylvia Rivera Law Project; a collective organization that works to guarantee that all people are free to self-determine their gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination, or violence. Basside and Sorry Records have raised over $650.00 for SRLP so far.
