A Bit About Sophie Nixdorf:

Sophie Nixdorf

Music has always been a vital part of Sophie’s life. Following early piano experiences, her 80s were filled with pop, dancefloor and independent. The 90s eventually led her to electronic music. Whether techno, house or acid, the Frankfurt Club Scene set the beat.

Sophie’s first contact with electronic music dates back to 1994, listening to the celebrated radio show HR-Clubnight, which then featured live sets of techno legends like Sven Väth and Carl Cox. Highly influenced by the music played in clubs like Frankfurt’s Box, Omen, Dorian Gray and especially in off-the-wall locations where underground parties took place, techno became part of her life. With all her favourite clubs closing down in 1999, Frankfurt’s U60311 became the new party hub and the source of her musical inspiration.

In early 2003 Sophie decided to deejay on her own, first at home and at various smaller parties. By a mere coincidence in the end of 2004, some of her mixed tapes caught the eye of the Palazzo/We-Love Music party party organisers who were instantly attracted to Sophie’s unique style of encompassing diverse music elements ranging from minimal to tech-house. Since then, Sophie has not only been performing in well-known clubs, festivals and radio shows, but also showed her talented skills in studio sessions and as supportive act for German techno elites.

Together with Matt K in 2006, Sophie launched her own shows in clubs in Mainz, Frankfurt and Wiesbaden and became resident at Mainz’s Safahi-Lounge until it closed down in spring 2008. With her regular gigs in Frankfurt and throughout Germany, Sophie became an essential part of Rhein-Main-Area’s music scene.

Her first release YOKOHAMA NIGHTS EP came out on OVERDRIVE in January 2009 followed by remixes of D.Diggler, Toni Vokado, Matt K and Kia. Following that, a Remix from Lexy’s NEW DAY DAWNING and her second Vinyl ROTATING SUSHI were released in 2010.

Since early 2011 she runs in co-oporation with Andy Düx the German based recordlabel OVERDRIVE.

She is resident DJ at the U60311 in Frankfurt.

Her uplifted spirit and exceptional mixing skills are the perfect ingredients for every party night and have contributed to a growing fan scene. Style-wise ranging broadly between minimal, tech-house and techno, Sophie responds to the party crowd and keeps it moving.
