Terr is the exciting musical project of Daniela Caldellas, the Berlin-based DJ/producer and label owner, who grew up in Brazil’s Belo Horizonte.
After spending her earlier years playing guitar in several punk bands, she asked her friends to teach he the basics of “computer music” only to unearth an infatuation with electronic production at the age of 19. “Electronic music allowed me to bring to life the sounds that I had in my mind,” she says. “It has no boundaries; I could bring to life all that I could imagine.” She then spent the ensuing 12 months researching new techniques, becoming a “studio freak,” while investing in the necessary analog gear to realise these sonic ideas.
Terr was born in 2016 as Caldellas’ first solo project. Its name stems from the 1970’s film “Fantastic Planet”: Terr is the name of the main human character. The debut release, a three-track EP titled Burn the Past, landed on Scuba’s Hotflush Recordings, followed in early 2017 with Misantropicalia — which “extended Terr’s musical horizons,” Caldellas explains. More recently, she returned to the label with Midnight, a two-tracker featuring a remix by Tuff City Kids. Her sound blends techno, electro, and house with electro-futuristic textures and analog sounds: it’s the most exciting concoction around.
