Evian Christ + Sophie

Music, Dance and electronic

22-year-old hip-hop and bass maestro Christ is one of the hottest producers around, crafting cavernous R&B riddims that are as damaged and booming as they are beautiful. It's new age sipping lean that can melt your face. Equally awesome: Sophie, a fellow young Brit, makes his Chicago debut. On bangers like "Hard" and "Bipp," he (it's assumed the enigmatic Sophie is a he) wires cutting edge IDM into schoolyard pop to make playful anime art, where water drops and bubble pops hit just as hard as the machine-shop racket. Imagine if Aphew Twin grew under the neon lights of Shibuya.
