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.
One of the very first moments Daniela got striked by the love for music, was in the age of four, as she saw in a polish communistic movie the polish folklore group "Mazowsze" singing and performing, from then on Daniela started singing the songs out loud, sitting at the window of her grandma.
The first contact with club music (at that time with house music) happened in 1994/5 with tINI (Desolat) at a school excursion to Prague/CZ. From then on, Daniela started buying & collecting different mixtapes, from House to Trip Hop to Drum´n Bass and was a radio addict as well.
Armed already with the vinyls of her parents, Daniela started buying vinyl in 1996. From then on she was DJing DrumNbass, Ambient and House - but somehow the DJing didn´t became her passion. In the same year Daniela bought her first accoustic guitar, locked herself for three days and learned to play it. During the same time Daniela got influenced by clubbing in Münchens legendary clubs "Ultraschall" and "Natraj Tempel". Also seeing Daftpunk performing their first album "Homework"impressed her deeply.
In spite of the electronic music influences Daniela collected, her first active step in live music didn´t led to electronic music. Influenced as well by psychodelic, rock, ska and punk, Daniela founded in 2000 her first band, where she was busy as songwriter/lead singer. In 2004 she recorded her first album with this band. Until 2007 Daniela was busy in different bands, performing Indie, Punk, 60´s, Crossover and Nu-Metal. During her time in the bands she learned in an autidactical way to play several instruments, to sing and to write whole arrangements for songs in different genres.
Frustrated of too less output, Daniela cancelled in 2007 playing with bands and did her first steps in homerecording, where 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.
Since 2007 Daniela has played gigs in clubs all over europe.
In april 2010 she won in Paris/FR the QWARTZ 6 ELECTRONIC MUSIC AWARD in the cathegory Dancefloor & Clubbing 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 2012 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 ...
Danielas 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 a serious taken producer is full of light.
Her second vinyl (Simply Everywhere) just got released. This one is as well a crunchy house groove, again 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, and nevertheless they both got enough dynamics and deep moods to impress.
In 2010 she overtook with a friend the label RIOT RIOT TECHNIQUE, releasing dancefloororientated music from House, Dub, Ambient, Elektro and Techno.
Daniela loves producing, performing and collaborating, mainly House and Techno, but not only, what means that shes very busy with different side projects too. Expect a lot more to come, cause your expectations will be fullfilled!
LIFE IS SHORT, SO TAKE YOUR TIME
