Sofia Acosta aka Coast2c is a multidisciplinary artist focusing on sound, DJing and visual arts. Her work in all mediums comes from internal expressions and impressions which focus on the creative process and the unpredictable results that derive from that.

Sofia has performed in different cities around the world including the live electronic music festival Kontaktor in Latvia. In 2018 with the help of a Career Opportunity grant provided by the Oregon Art Commission, she studied modular synthesis at Elektronmusikstudion (EMS) and helped produced a series of synth educational workshops for female and non-binary students at Superbooth Berlin and The Synth Library, Prague.

Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
Music is a product of its environment. Evolving and intense.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Nene H – Un violador en tu camino.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
A huge need to dance again in a dark place with pulsing lights and people.
Tell us about your next EP?
My next EP will be released sometime this year on a Mexican label that I truly cherish. I am working with and learning the Analog RYTM right now and I am making most of my sounds and beats on that machine.
What have you got coming up?
I am currently in programming school and working on music. I have some projects lined up for next year so I am taking my time to prepare something meaningful. I am trying to be steady and aware, not rushing things.
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
Keep dreaming, keep pushing. The world needs your energy.
