Classically trained since the age of 6, it was a long musical roller-coaster ride before Sophie Visser finally knew that she belonged behind the Decks. Trained in violin, flute and vocals she discovered the world of electronic music when she was accepted into the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) to study music composition, to then move onto a Bachelor of Music Production And Composition.

After studying intensely the origins of electronic and experimental music, Sophie found motivation in the wonderful world of EDM. Inspired by the power of Dance music in the nightclub scene, Sophie decided that she wanted a piece of the action herself, and set her sights on mastering the art of blending tunes behind the decks to create one big party.

After a few nights playing at the local Oasis Lounge, Sophie quickly fell under the wing of renowned in- ternational DJ artist, Jason Stone. After teaching her an array of skill sets that make the ingredients of a good DJ, Sophie was finally ready to be put to the test by opening the Annual Masquerade Ball at Toucan Nightclub Mandurah. Sophie created the perfect opening atmosphere, as she slowly raised the energy in the room ready for the Headliner DJ to drop his big room sounds and made the crowd go wild.

Sophie's confidence quickly grew and with the direction of her Manager Sophie has expanded her perfor- mances by bringing live vocals and violin to the stage whilst featuring in many of Jason Shows including sets at Club Paradiso and more recently Hedkandi's Carnivale Tour.

Jason, known for his theatrics on stage says,

"Sophie brings something fresh and different to my sets. She is growing everyday as an artist and will surely go a long way both independently and as part of my team."

Since Joining the Team at Arena Events Sophie has gone on to support some of the worlds Biggest Selling EDM and House acts, Including Laid Back Luke, Timmy Trumpet, Helena, Will Sparks, Tigerlilly, Uberjak'd, My Digital Enemy, Monkey Safari, Doorly, James Zabilia, Piero and Alex Taylor just to name a few.

Climbing from local Club Booth to Festival Stage Sophie is one of Australia's newest sensations to watch. Recently relocating to Bali Sophie has become become resident DJ at the Prestigious Sky Garden spinning House sets out most nights of the week as well as joining to Elite Sounds and her partner Jason Stone to perform their Interface show throughout Indonesia.
