Terr: The Wednesday Alternative Mix


Daniela Caldellas is a Brazilian producer based in Barcelona who has embarked upon an intriguing electronic escapade. She has previously appeared on Hotflush however her latest release on the well recognised Permanent Vacation record label saw her up the gears with an emboldened style and a distinct identity. Having grown up with punk she since evolved into the world of electronics, however she brings with her a raw aesthetic and an eclectic edge which definitely still nods towards her past roots. The Terr project was founded in 2016 and it looks as though she might be about to attract wider attention off the back of her latest work. 

One to watch we think. 

Listen and read the interview below: 

Please introduce yourself… 

My name is Daniela, aka Terr. I am a music producer and DJ, and I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. Thanks for inviting me!

Who are you, where are you and what are you?

I am a carbon-based entity called a human being, of the female gender, specialized on working with sound waves and frequencies. My physical body is in Barcelona, Spain, a city in the planet we call Earth, that is the third big rock from our Sun.

What does your music sound like? Can you draw what you think it sounds like for us (an image from the old internet is acceptable)? 

It’s hard to define my own music, I think it’s a juxtaposition of everything I have lived and all my influences. It probably sounds like a mix of house, electro, 80s music, disco, punk rock, indie, Kraftwerk, Radiohead, Brian Eno and Kate Bush.

Where was the mix recorded?

I recorded it at home, in Barcelona.

What would be the ideal setting to listen to the mix?

It’s a mix full of energy with some old and new stuff, showing a selection of my influences throughout. You can listen to it as a warm up for a night out, in the car or while doing sports (this would be my favourite)

What should we be wearing? 

Something comfortable, always. 

What would be your dream setting to record a mix: Location/system/format? 

I’d like to record a mix on the moon, with a lot of friends.

Which track in the mix is your current favourite?

Chimes e Bells – The Mole (Trentemøller remix)

What’s your favourite recorded mix of all time?

Trentmøller’s Late Night Tales is a masterclass of brilliant music.

If you could go back to back with any DJ from throughout history, who would it be and why? 

Jesus Christ. The guy walked on water and made wine by himself, can you imagine what he would do with turntables?

What was your first DJ set up at home and what is it now? 

When I began DJing I bought a pair of turntables and a crappy mixer, and a pair of CDJ 100, that’s where I learned. If you can play on CDJ100 you can play on any other equipment, even if you are sleeping. Today I use a pair of CDJ2000 Nexus, with some effect pedals. 

What’s more important, the track you start on or the track you end on?

I think it’s the first one. If you go really wrong on the first one, it’s hard to get on the tracks again… It’s like the first pages of a book or the beginning of a movie, if it’s bad you are not gonna stay around for the rest… and if you start off in a conscious way then things just work, and the set flows better.

What were the first and last records you bought?

The first was probably something by Nirvana, and the last one was my weekly DJ purchase. It counts as a record, right?

If this mix was an edible thing, what would it taste like?

Strawberry, sweet and acid.

If it was an animal what would it be?

A drunk unicorn

One record in your collection that is impossible to mix into anything?

Merzbow’s Pulse Demon

Upcoming in the world of…  

[not sure what this question means]?

Anything else we need to discuss? 

Of course…..Global warming, politics, ABBA’s comeback and how to make the world a better place for the future generation!
