Sofia Kourtesis debut EP is playful and poetic

Published

Katja Ruge 

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.

J. Cole is rolling out all the heavy hitters at this year’s Dreamville Festival. Following the usual tradition, Cole himself will serve as the headliner for the evening and made sure the roster of artists leading up to the main attraction would be enough to keep the momentum flowing through the day, giving fans their money’s worth.

The lineup includes features from the whole Dreamville crew and more, including SZA, Big Sean, 6LACK, 21 Savage, Nelly, 21 Savage, Teyana Taylor, Davido, Mez, Bas, J.I.D, Cozz, Earthgang, Ari Lennox, Omen and Lute.

The festival is scheduled for Saturday, April 6 at Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, North Carolina. We hope Revenge Of The Dreamers 3 project will drop before then so they can perform some of the new music live.

Tickets are available for purchase here.
