The Scottish artist, 34, who was also known as SOPHIE, had worked with stars Madonna and Charlie XCX.

Now Sophie’s girlfriend Evita Manji has told MailOnline she was able to speak to the trans icon after she fell from the apartment block in Athens, Greece.

She said: “I managed to tell her I love her and to tell her to keep fighting.

“She was my life. We were supposed to get married.”

In a post on social media she added: “I guess this is what it’s like to wake up from a dream, because my life with you felt like the best dream Sophie.

“Everyday was an endless stream of love and acceptance, a journey to know you deeper and deeper.

“Today I lost my everything… I can feel your energy everywhere around and inside me, you’re guiding me through this and calm me down like you would always do.

“Every particle of me will always have a piece of you.

“Sophie was a real angel, she was the sweetest, the kindest to every soul and everything around her.

“A very very special creature… She was so curious about what is out there in the cosmos, I can feel her being happy and excited to explore the unknown.

“She’s an immaterial girl now, she can be anything she wants… and she is in everything around us.”

Sophie’s record label announced her death on Twitter yesterday.

The statement from Transgressive read: “Tragically our beautiful Sophie passed away this morning after a terrible accident.

“True to her spirituality she had climbed up to watch the full moon and accidentally slipped and fell.”

A statement from the trans icon’s team hailed her as a “pioneer of a new sound”.

It read: “It is with profound sadness that I have to inform you that musician and producer SOPHIE passed away this morning around 4am in Athens, where the artist had been living, following a sudden accident.”

The artist was nominated for Best Dance/Electronic Album for her 2018 debut album Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides.

Pals have paid tribute to the icon.

TRAGIC FALL

Artist QueensChristine added: “Sophie was a stellar producer, a visionary, a reference. She rebelled against the narrow, normative society by being an absolute triumph, both as an artist and as a woman.

“I can’t believe she is gone. We need to honor and respect her memory and legacy. Cherish the pioneers.”

The statement to Metro.co.uk paid tribute to her impact on the world of music.

It read: “SOPHIE was a pioneer of a new sound, one of the most influential artists in the last decade.

“Not only for ingenious production and creativity but also for the message and visibility that was achieved. An icon of liberation.”

And it continued: “At this time respect and privacy for the family is our priority.

“We would also ask for respect for her fanbase, and to treat the private nature of this news with sensitivity.”
