gorilla vs. bear sunday mix 009 | Sofia Kourtesis
We're thrilled to welcome one of our favorite new artists for this week's GvsB Sunday mix: Peruvian-born, Berlin-based producer and DJ, Sofia Kourtesis. Sofia's self-titled EP from last year was one of the best releases of 2019, and this year's Sarita Colonia EP may be even better. It's a stunning realization of her distinct style of warmly playful and dazzlingly vibrant house music, her brilliant use of samples and found sounds radiating a sort of a magical, transportive quality that elevates her songs to another level. It's club music that tends to make you feel like you're living in a movie while you dance in isolation. Sofia's amazing mix reflects her adventurous style as a DJ, kicking off with her stellar new remix of Georgia's "24 Hours" (appearing for the first time here), and featuring tracks from Axel Boman, Mall Grab, Kraftwerk, DJ Koze, Moldy Peaches, and more. Sofia tells us about the mix:
Hola Gorilla Vs Bear, thank you for inviting me to contribute a mix!
I made this mix during lockdown at my apartment in Mitte, Berlin. Normally when I make mixes its sandwiched between club shows so my head is very much full of harder beats and club music so I really enjoyed putting together a mix that felt more suited to home listening. In the mix there are tracks from Health, Rupa, Superpitcher and a remix I recently finished for Georgia. Right now I’m in the studio of Funkhaus working on lots of new music for my next release. Excited to share more new music with you soon.
Gracias and thanks for all your support.
