Sofia Kourtesis

Sofia Kourtesis is a house music producer based out of Lima, Peru and Berlin, Germany. When she began work on her debut, Kourtesis was seemingly unstoppable. A string of rapturously received EPs and singles made her one of the fastest rising stars in the electronic world and beyond. She has already graced the cover of Mixmag, released a brilliantly energetic and moving Resident Advisor ‘RA Session’, appeared on End of Year lists in The New York Times, Pitchfork, DJ Mag, and Spotify (#6 Best Electronic Song) and played instant sell-out early shows at London’s Lafayette and Manchester’s YES as well as standout performances at Glastonbury, Green Man, Wide Awake and Primavera with tours supporting Caribou and Bicep. Kourtesis’ music is the melding of her Berlin home and her South American upbringing, two cultures that really couldn’t be further apart. Her debut album Madres was described by Pitchfork as “a shimmery collection of protest chants, club rhythms, and sunlit synths that testifies to dance music’s spiritual nourishment.” Sofia brings her ecstatic house music to Splendour for the very first time.
