Sofia Kourtesis debut EP is playful and poetic

Published

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

The 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 that made out one of the highlights of our first label compilation Studio Barnhus Volym 1.

A self-described “travelling bedroom producer”, Sofia started the process of writing her solo debut with a journey into the Amazon jungle. Stops were also made in front of a dusty Juno-106 in her Berlin bedroom and at a mysterious Tokyo flea-market. We’re a bit fuzzy on the details but we’re pretty sure this record comes packed with the kind of raw energy and runaway imagination only a really strong debut release could possess. 

The EP debuted March 1 via Studio Barnhus. Select US dates to be announced for spring 2019. To steam, click here.

Ouch! Tyler, The Creator’s London pop-up show cancelled, but here’s why

Its been a great week for Tyler, The Creator following the successful release of his latest album IGOR. In celebration of the hip-hop star’s new body of work, he took to Twitter to announce a surprise, pop-up show in London for his devoted fans.

The anticipated performance would have marked Tyler’s first gig in the U.K. in four years. The London stop was unfortunately canceled for reportedly being “too rowdy.”

Back in 2015, Tyler was banned by Britain’s Home Office from entering over his controversial music content, as they believe it “foster[s] hatred with views that seek to provoke others to terrorist acts.”

Shortly after he dropped the news with an image of himself posted in front of Buckingham Palace, wearing the same blonde wig from his “EARFQUAKE” video, he revealed a new location is in the works and would be announced at a later date.
