Influences: Terr

Ahead of her debut on Phantasy, the Berlin-based DJ shares the songs that shaped her musical path...

Terr is the guise of Berlin-based Brazilian born DJ Daniela Caldellas, a solo project conceived at the beginning of 2016. Her infatuation with electronic music production came at the age of 19, following a brief spell in punk bands during her teens, and soon she became obsessed with researching new studio techniques, investing in analog gear to help bring to life the sounds she had in her mind. Landing releases on Permanent Vacation, Hotflush, Correspondant as well as her own Clash Lion imprint, her music is often littered with driving cosmic synths and echoing vocal slivers, influenced heavily by electro-futurism and analog sounds. 

Ahead of her debut on Erol Alkan's Phantasy Sound, a cosmic synth pop EP indebted to the modulation of some of her favourite producers like Giorgio Moroder and Phil Oakley, she shares some of the music that shaped her musical path...

Afrika Bambaataa & The Soul Sonic Force - Renegades Of Funk

I love early electro, house and techno, really raw stuff from the early 80s. Afrika Bambaataa had no limits, it a brilliant mix of electro, hiphop, funk, Kraftwerk and everything else he wanted to put in the mix. It's hard to imagine today how they did everything with the technology available at that moment, but it still sounds powerful and fresh. Never gets old, music for the body and for the brain.
