At the heart of Sooma’s world lies a deep-rooted connection with her heritage.
Drawing on a rich, multi-cultural upbringing in her native France, the young singer spent years in Montpellier, recording emotive Soul before turning her hand to underground dance music.
Arriving in the public realm with 2015’s Bold, a collaboration alongside Keinemusik’s David Mayer, she continued to explore a driving variant of Deep House - percussive, tribal and inextricably linked to a childhood spent listening to her father’s record collection, which paired George Clinton with St. Germain & original Madagascan music.
Early exposure to this lineage runs rich through recorded work & her most recent release Dune via Berlin’s Through My Speakers is testament to a love for bright, tripping drum programming & infectious bassline groove.
As a DJ, Sooma lifts from her own experiences on the dance floor - working to generate an energetic, focused rapport with audiences. Shifting with ease from downtempo Funk through the complex rhythms of World Music and arriving at hypnotic, peak-time Tech House has won her growing attention.
With swathes of her own unreleased productions weaving in and amongst DJ sets, Sooma surely has some more up her sleeve.
