Sofia Kourtesis DJ set


An original!

Sofia Kourtesis is a Peruvian-born, Berlin-based producer. Kourtesis first made herself known with a self titled EP released isn 2019. While staying true to the essence and purpose of dance music, Sofia, who goes beyond the usual patterns in her productions, comes to the fore with highly successful, eclectic, original and familiar productions from different places with her own approach.
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 her new EP 'Sarita Colonia'. 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.
The tracks in the self-titled EP turned an immediate cult hit, and Sofia's house music, that transcends tradition, renounced rote functionality and sole purpose was to make people dance, began to be heard everywhere. Sofia Kourtesis, who has risen with a unique sound by continuing her productions from what she knows right, is coming to Sónar Istanbul 2023 with her brave production and music that feels both very familiar and very new! Get ready for a party where we will have unforgettable moments on the dance floor with a total energy.
