/ LONG BIOGRAPHY
(this part is will be updated soon)
Born and raised in München, father german, mother polish, one younger sister.
One of the very first moments Daniela got striked by the love for music, was in the age of four when she watched a polish communistic movie, where the polish folklore group "Mazowsze" was singing and performing. From then on Daniela started singing the songs out loud, sitting at the open window of her grandma.
In 1994 Daniela got a Rotterdam Techno mixtape into her hands, which was her first contact with electronic dance music.
Armed already with the vinyls of her parents, Daniela started in 1996 visiting record shops regularly for listening and buying vinyl. 1999 was the year where a Drum´n Bass DJ career could´ve started, but Daniela was not passionate enough about DJing. In the same year Daniela bought her first accoustic guitar, locked herself for three days and learned to play the basic chords. During the same time Daniela got influenced by the weekly clubbing in Munichs legendary clubs "Ultraschall" and "Natraj Tempel". Also seeing Daftpunk performing their first album "Homework"impressed her deeply.
Danielas love for music does not know any borders, she´s listening/collecting all kinds of music, from Jazz to Hip Hop to Swing to Hardcore to Classic to Folklore to Punk to Soul and back - music must simply transport a good & special vibe, or at best, a message.
Frustrated of too less output, 2007 was the year where Daniela decided to cancel playing with bands and did her first steps in homerecording, with the approach to just record scribbles of written songs. But meanwhile, unaware, she began to discover music out of a producers perspective. Quickly she noticed that this way of making music increased her output enourmusly.
In the same year Daniela & tINI found each other back after a cool schooltime back & started to hang out again. Daniela joined tINI to several gigs and in this way the amount of electronic music in her life grew again and reanimated her passion. This was the determining factor that made her focus on electronic music production, with pleasure and love. Danielas firstl electronic solo gig was as a guest of tINI´s (Desolat) birthday party in München in 2007.
In 2009 she won a remix contest for COMA on Firm Records and in 2010 a QWARTZ 6 ELECTRONIC MUSIC AWARD in the cathegory "Dancefloor & Clubbing" in Paris/FR, with her track ELLE ROUTINE (released on the VA Compilation Musik Non Stop Uno from the label Syncopated Musik / Minneapolis / US).
In september 2010 tINI invited Daniela to play together with her and Magda at the USHUAIA Beach Club in Ibiza / ES.
Danielas Live-Sets are a bundle of clean, worked out elements and beats - alternating with honest, pumping, deep and pure moods, always using her own vocals.
In 2011 finally her first EP (People Happy) got pressed on 12" vinyl, (Label: Moody Heights, sublabel from Other Heights/Belgium) and earned support from tINI, Adam Port, Steffi, Mr. Statik, Hrdvsion, Dario Zenker, Scott Ferguson, Ev Freska, Yoav B, Moodymanc, Alex Flatner, etc. ...
People Happy (The Essential Voyage) EP is a timeless crunchy house groove, with her approach to remind people about the aim in life to be happy. On the B side you find And I Say Yes I Want, a super deep, dubby and melodic track. This EP became a proof that Danielas future as a serious taken producer looks bright.
Danielas second vinyl (Simply Everywhere) got released on White Rabbit Recordings/Italy. This one contains as well a crunchy house groove, reminding of Chicago House. On this track Daniela sings about love from the first meeting. Jorge Savoretti added a dubby remix. The other two tracks on this EP (Morning Fogg Jazz, Two Planets Like Earth) are between 112 and 115 bpm, but nevertheless both have enough dynamics and deep moods to impress.
In 2013 RAWAX picked her up and she signed.
In summer 2013 the album-pre-sampler "Pistol Star" and her 2x12" debut album "Based On Electriticy" got released, which is as well the first longplayer RAWAX brought out. The pre-sampler as well as the album show a wider spectrum of Danielas productions, showcasing her uncompromising diversity. Both releases earned great feedbacks worldwide.
For 2014 Daniela signed another album for the Rawax/DBH family, which will this time be released on their sublabel HOUSEWAX.
Other projects are on their wayl.
Daniela has played all over europe, in Tunis and Taiwan. Wherever she performed, her music left a deep impact. As you can expect from a busy and passionate musician like Daniela, there´s much more to come.
