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.
