Los Angeles label Stones Throw just released Mndsgn & Sofie’s Abeja as a single from Sofie Fatouretchi’s (one of the original crew of Boiler Room) compilation album Sofie’s SOS Tape from 2016. It featured 24 tracks from 26 artists like Illingsworth, DJ Harrison, Stimulator Jones, Ahwlee, Cavalier, MndSgn, Sofie and many others. The album was an insider look on emerging acts across the US and abroad with an album cover designed by Argentinian-based artist Gustavo Eandi.
SOS Tape served the purpose to showcase “underground’s best hip-hop and soul” that otherwise would have stayed floating in DJ sets and personal mixtapes on Sofie’s monthly show on London-based radio station NTS Radio. Listen.
