Boomkat Product Review:
Dusty fourth-world house for fans of The Field or Thomas Bangalter.
Peruvian artist Sofia Kourtesis draws on her personal experience for "Fresia Magdalena", infusing her rolling, lounge-house productions with her own vocals and the spiritual backbone of her commiunity. "Fresia" is her mother's name and "Magdelena" the region she grew up in, so while the music retains its utility, it's struck through with deeper meaning. Musically, it veers from rolling Kompakt-esque slow burners ('La Perla') through dusty Roulé-esque filter house ('Nicolas') and into gleeful piano house that sounds like it could end up sporting a Drake verse in a few months ('Juntos').
