Sofiane El Kheloufi (born January 9th, 1992) better known by his stage name SoFine is a Canadian artiste based in Montreal. SoFine has always felt drawn to the music culture. He started writing lyrics on beats at the age of 18. In 2012, SoFine began recording music unofficially. What started off as a way to entertain himself and kill some time quickly grew into something much more serious and passionate influenced by his friend and real time producer Realmind. SoFine is driven and motivated by creativity and has always wanted to redefine and reform music.
SoFine is an artiste in the true sense of the word. He has a distinctive and unique sound that is not common to many musical artistes. SoFine has been able to bring about a melodic, tuneful fusion of rap, dancehall, hip-hop and pop music that many have dubbed as urban art. This is his contribution to the musical culture.
In 2017, he released two stunning tracks "Fly shit only" "smoke & chill" which were widely accepted. Also in 2017, SoFine released a debut E.P titled "Lifestyle Exposed", a textured, experimental and alternative hip-hop album which was his first official release to the public. It was a culmination of what he had learned in the past few years. The album incorporates elements of hip-hop, rap, pop, and dancehall.
"Lifestyle Exposed" is themed around religion, addiction, relationship, his pains, dreams and the balance of extreme dedication with letting loose. SoFine intends to be a voice through his music, letting people know they are not alone in whatever they are passing through. The goal of the "Lifestyle Exposed" movement is to inspire creativity, innovation, perseverance and drive for all those wild minded dreamers out there.
In moving forward, SoFine is constantly in the studio with his producer "Realmind" writing new songs and recording new music. He is continually pulling from all of his past experiences. His music is naturally ever evolving. He thoroughly believes that as long as he remains authentic and true to himself, he will have no limits. Creating and innovating is his life, SoFine aims to push culture forward and to inspire along the way.
