You might know Sofi Tukker from their song “Best Friend”, featured in the Apple commercial unveiling the IPhone X. But the genre-defying duo of Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern have been celebrated worldwide for their unique perspective on electronic music and themes of liberation, unity, and self-empowerment. In fact, their records have achieved Gold or Platinum status in every continent except Antarctica. After being nominated for a Best Dance/Electronic Album Grammy for their 2018 debut album Treehouse, the group is back with their latest EP, DANCING ON THE PEOPLE, inspired by the duo’s enlightening experience in the Dominican Republic.
We had the pleasure of having Sofi Tukker in Studio 1A to play an intimate show for our concert club ahead of their show at Stubb’s. Listen to the live performance and an exclusive unaired bonus track below!
