Sofia Kourtesis - Sofia Kourtesis

On her self-titled debut EP, Sofia Kourtesis channels experiences of her transatlantic existence between hometowns Lima and Berlin through a torrent of sounds, rhythms, voices and loops, creating a collection of tracks all firmly rooted in contemporary dance floors but with their spirits roaming high above the clouds.

This world-travelling, MPC-busting, Gold Panda-collaborating maverick’s first appearance on record was with 2018’s WinWin San, a sparkly, razor sharp dance diamond which was received as one of the highlights of Studio Barnhus Volym 1, the Stockholm label’s mammoth compilation released in August last year. A self-confessed “travelling bedroom producer", Sofia started the process of writing her debut solo outing with a journey into the Amazon jungle. Stops were also made in front of a dusty Juno 106 in her Berlin bedroom and a Tokyo flea-market.
