Sofia Kourtesis

Kourtesis first made herself known with a self titled EP released last year. An immediate cult hit, tracks from the EP appeared in mixes and on dancefloors everywhere and received 8.0 from Pitchfork with Philip Sherburne saying “[Kourtesis’] debut EP is the kind of house music that skirts convention and renounces rote functionality without ever forgetting that its purpose is to make people move”. Now she follows up with her second offering, a similarly buoyant and unconventional collection of songs which furthers the development of a sound that is uniquely her own. From the fragments of sound taken from both her native home and her life lived all over the world to her unique handling of samples lifted from movies and personal encounters; Kourtesis’ music is joyful, infectious and undeniably singular.

Peruvian-born, Berlin-based producer Sofia Kourtesis has today announced that she will release a new EP entitled Sarita Colonia on 14 Feb via Studio Barnhus, along with the announcement she has shared the title-track.

Kourtesis first made herself known with a self titled EP released last year. An immediate cult hit, tracks from the EP appeared in mixes and on dancefloors everywhere and received 8.0 from Pitchfork with Philip Sherburne saying “[Kourtesis’] debut EP is the kind of house music that skirts convention and renounces rote functionality without ever forgetting that its purpose is to make people move”. Now she follows up with her second offering, a similarly buoyant and unconventional collection of songs which furthers the development of a sound that is uniquely her own. From the fragments of sound taken from both her native home and her life lived all over the world to her unique handling of samples lifted from

movies and personal encounters; Kourtesis’ music is joyful, infectious and undeniably singular.

All this is exemplified in ‘Sarita Colonia’, the title-track released today. Kourtesis’ satisfyingly bold production swirls around samples both familiar and distant, quickly building to all-out euphoria which never takes an eye off the dancefloor while remaining the kind of track you can play anywhere.

Elsewhere ‘Hollywood’ – a Studio Barnhus favourite – showcases smooth melodics contrasted with a mind-expanding mid-section. ‘Moninga’ shifts things up a little with its dizzying groove and last but most certainly not least ‘Akariku”s introspective musings and inverted wails close the EP in startling fashion over glistening arpeggios.
