Daniela La Luz, polish rooted, born and raised in one of Munich´s suburbs, 6th floor, left door.
Daniela dedicates her life to music. Her voyage of discovery was and still is an active analysis through all existing music genres, which leads to an unique blend of house, acid, dub and techno.
At a very young age she fell in love with music. Whilst singing polish folklore songs with her family, Daniela´s curiosity was aroused and she started investigating italo disco, pop, rock, oldies, funk, soul, grunge, hip hop, rap, trip hop, jazz, wave, rave, psychedelic, classical, indie, blues, ska, punk rock, hardcore, nu metal, experimental, RnB, as well as all existing electronic music styles.
It was the year 1996 when Daniela started buying vinyl and spinning records. Her first DJ adventures started in 1999, playing drum´n bass, house and ambient at clubs and events in and around Munich.
In 2000 she founded her first band. During the next six years in bands, Daniela learned in an autodidactical way to play several instruments, wrote many songs, arrangements, recorded an album, performed multiple live gigs and during this voyage she took a deep breath of diverse genres and ways to make music.
In 2007 Daniela rediscovered club music, bought her first synthesizer and started writing electronic music. First digital releases followed soon, supported by Ken Ishii and Laurent Garnier.
2010 marked one of the highlights in Danielas young musical career. Her track „Elle Routine“ (Label: Syncopated Musik) won a "QWARTZ 6 Electronic Music Award" in the cathegory "Dancefloor & Clubbing" in Paris, among artists such as Laurie Anderson, Gudrun Gut, Apparat, Alec Empire and Pierre Schaeffer: François Bayle.
„People Happy (The Essential Voyage)", released in 2011, was Daniela´s vinyl debut and the initial spark of entering the international scene, a timeless house piece supported by many high profile DJ´s.
From there on Daniela released and remixed music on respected labels such as Housewax, Rawax, Souvenir, Cocoon, Frolé, White Rabbit, Sound Warrior and Coincidence. tINI included Daniela´s production „Feel The Future“ on her Cocoon Ibiza mix CD. Furthermore Moodymann picked her piece „Did You Ever“ as closing track for his DJ Kicks Mix on !K7.
Radio has been a formative, important, daily medium for Daniela ever since music stepped into her life. In 2016 Daniela got behind the microphone, playing tracks and inviting guests for her Parallel Radio Show.
Daniela named her first double album „Based On Electricity“, as the medium electricity was and is an essential power for the creation of electronic music. A house album shining of variety, reminding of US house worlds with analogue, slamming drum machines. Lush, raw, and sweet, then suddenly diving into abstraction, almost techno, yet surprisingly soulful and deep.
In 2016 Daniela founded her own vinyl only label „Parallel Berlin“, focussing on house and techno hybrids. The first record of the new born label comes from Daniela itself, proving her diversity with a record to represent all moods of a set - Foreverness EP.
Coming next will be Daniela´s second double vinyl longplayer of the same name as the pre-sampler „Counting Days“. Eight tracks picking up once more the house theme. Each track is a personal relationship of Daniela and her music, making the whole work sound like a deep and spiritual adventure. In almost every piece Daniela uses her voice in true house tradition to promote positive changes in ourselves. The vocals are snuggled in rotating drums, bass lines, roughness and sweet melodies.
When playing at clubs and festivals, Daniela mostly performs live. Over the years she has developed a huge set of her own music, which makes it easy for her to adapt to the night, please the crowd, nevertheless staying true to her own style. Her sound varies from heavy jacking rhytms, to house, deep house, dubby and percussive grooves, to techno and acid, whilst never losing the approach of a forceful melody. Daniela´s approach of every single set she plays, is to create a spiritual atmosphere and leave a motivating impact onto all senses of the mind.
