Peruvian-born, Berlin-based DJ and producer Sofia Kourtesis release her new EP, Fresia Magdalena, on Ninja Tune's Technicolour imprint.
Fresia Magdalena is more rooted in Kourtesis' native Peru than ever. On one of her regular extended trips home, the process of making the EP began with the collection of field recordings around the city of Lima. "I look at songs like a collage" she says, "I put all the samples at the forefront and create music around them"
.What makes Fresia Magdalena unique is the life bubbling under the surface of the collection as a whole. The influences, passions and relationships of Kourtesis as a person are behind every moment - a fierce call to action softened and presented with the warmth of family and home. Fresia Magdalena is a collection of vibrant dance music that lifts the mood with addictive and distinctive flourishes separating it from the pack.
This is an outstanding EP from Sofia Kourtesis that emerges as one of the best early house projects of the year.
The Berlin-based Peruvian artist effortlessly ties her artistic message and inspirations together on a second club-ready EP that's bursting with life and personality Kourtesis' latest EP more than proves that club-ready music can be beautiful, thought-provoking and banging all at the same time.
Five Out of Five Stars
The Berlin-based artist pays tribute to her native Lima, Peru in bittersweet house music that wears its spiritual yearning on its sleeve. Kourtesis has a sound of her own: unfailingly warm, thoughtful in form, risking a certain conservatism for the sake of welcome comfort. Like the shrines to Colonia, Kourtesis' beats reward belief.
