When I first encountered Sofi Tukker, I used to be assembly them at an early sound examine for an interview previous to their present in San Francisco that night time. When I arrived, the venue was nonetheless principally empty with a sound engineer on stage establishing mics. Then, within the center of the empty beer stained dance flooring was Sophie Hawley-Weld, one-half of the Brooklyn duo Sofi Tukker, simply stretching it out on her yoga mat by herself. I’ll all the time keep in mind that second as a result of it was the primary time I’ve ever seen anybody by some means embrace the calmness of a room sometimes reserved for bought out exhibits crammed with screaming followers. If you’ve got ever witnessed a Sofi Tukker efficiency, you will see Sophie operating, kicking, dancing and rolling across the stage. So it isn’t shocking to study that she makes use of yoga to remain limber and unfastened. But life on the street is extra draining on the psychological than it’s the bodily and regardless of a rigorous touring schedule, Sophie manages to someway all the time radiate an inherently cool and calming demeanor. That’s why EARMILK is happy for the prospect to share some of the music that Sophie listens to when she’s trying to unwind. Check out the exclusive playlist under:
