Following recent anthem The Way on Toolroom and her ON IT Recordings debut with Never Leave You last year, Sophie Essél returns to ONYVA’s rising imprint for new single Reachin. Hailing from Liverpool UK, Sophia Essél has been surrounded by inspiration in a city brimming with musical heritage. Following in the footsteps of Liverpudlian elites like CamelPhat, Yousef and Friend Within, Sophia has already graced labels like Swerve Digital, DJ S.K.T’s Stashed, Sinister Sounds, Toolroom Records and of course ON IT Recordings.
Sophia’s breakthrough track The Franchise on Toolroom secured her return to release back on the label this year with The Way which has already seen support from Mark Knight himself on KISS FM and The Aston Shuffle on Triple J. Elsewhere, her releases on Sinister Sounds including Down with Me and My Love amassed 1.8M streams and counting, marking some of her biggest releases to date.
With her debut ON IT Recordings single Never Leave You garnering backing from Calvin Harris, Richy Ahmed, Detlef, Hannah Wants, Illyus & Barrientos, Steve Lawler, Dennis Ferrer and more, Sophia is set to continue her momentum for Reachin. Beginning with euphoric vocal monologues, Reachin proceeds into a floating groove that weaves progressive drum lines and percussion whilst melodic synth waves and vocal distortions soar, making for a hypnotic dance roller.
