Sofie Fatouretchi is an artist born in California to Austrian and Iranian parents. A classically trained musician, she spent her teenage years in Vienna studying concert violin and viola at the Konservatorium. 

Her career in music began when she started interning at Stones Throw Records, an American independent music label based in Los Angeles, and was subsequently hired as digital manager, drawing back on technical skills acquired having spent her years after high school interning for Microsoft and Hewlett Packard. Her role expanded quickly to A&R; signing several artists to the label, such as Grandmilly, Mndsgn, Knxwledge, and Stimulator Jones.

Her foundations in DJing began at a Stones Throw hosted night called 56, which took place at the now defunct Mr T’s Bowl in Highland Park. From thereon she connected with Boiler Room, when they booked their first West Coast broadcast, and she was booked to open for Dam-Funk, J Rocc and Peanut Butter Wolf. She quickly became responsible for hosting, programming, merchandise and creative direction, a move that saw her moving to New York and London.

As of 2017 she resides in Vienna, where she studies painting under Henning Bohl at the University of Applied Arts, as well as philosophy, plays violin in the Wiener Akademische Philharmonie, works as a DJ, with her own radio shows on London’s NTS and Austria’s FM4. Her debut, self-produced solo album, Cult Survivor, is newly released on Stones Throw Records.
