Under the new name “Hi World” Sofie Guillois Larsen tried to release “Not Expecting a Revolution” in 2013. Unfortunately the Distibution Company didn’t do their job, and Sofie had to change to another company. And now you can’t hear any of Sofies creations. Even not “This could be harpcore”. So please hold on for a year.. or two.
“Hi World” is a successor of the harpcore project from where we have seen happenings and music www.harpcore.com.
In Hi World everything is transformed into a pop song in the language of superpowers, and in French when it’s about sex (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YE3qtJlZcVE). The sound is meant to be as commercial as it is economically, personally and artistically possible.
Not expecting a revolution
Not expecting a revolution is a song collection describing people in very different difficult situations, but with the same expectation of not getting any help (from the society). No matter what form of government, they are not the ones to be helped. They hope, act and scorn during the 7 songs.
Lyrics and music is made by Sofie, except ”Hey Jameymen” which is an arrangement made in collaboration with Diamond Duggal and K.Y.D, of the song ”Hej søster” by ”Trille”, the icon of the Danish feminist movement in the 1970′s. The English/Chinese song Merry Christmas is also arranged in collaboration with K.Y.D (http://www.myspace.com/mysonnoah). Diamond Duggal (www.djswami.com) mixed and mastered and took part in the final production on everything except the two songs ”Money or love” and ”The Winner” produced by Jonas Tranberg.
The London based Diamond Duggal/DJ Swami is mostly known for for his English-Indian hits and as a DJ and prizewinning producer. Sofie met him in London shortly after his production of Shania Twains ”Up”, but they didn’t work together until the end of 2012, when Sofie sent him the draft of ”Hey Jameymen”.
