DJ, producer and songwriter, Peruvian (and adopted Berliner) Sofia Kourtesis invites us to take to the Nazca lines and climb aboard. Very high! The most discerning dancefloor fans have known her for some time, and she even came to Piknic Electronik in fall 2022, without making any waves. Next time will be quite different. Tech-house foundations, krautrock flavors, a resolutely Latina identitiy, cumbia, reggaeton or Afro-Peruvian identity, not to mention a pretty psychedelic nod to Manu Chao (and his famous hit Primavera) and a seductive ambient parenthesis, here are so many powders of a powerful explosive for all activities requiring any kick of the butt. The album main hit, Si Te Portas Bonito, is a bomb, a sure-fire hit at all parties and roadtrips, and the 10 tracks on this excellent album show no conceptual weakness. We can deduce that this thirty-something brilliant woman has acquired the artistic maturity in her career as a nightclubber to build a sound that is both very pop and very original.
