Daniela is a live-act, musician, producer, composer and vocalist.
After six years of playing in bands as singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Daniela returned in 2008 to electronic music. With an incredible rich background of different styles of music, Daniela has created a personal style that defines her sound, playing hot and pumping live sets, always integrating her own vocals into her productions.
Daniela´s sets and productions expand the boundaries of understanding house and techno music to new horizons. By processing a colorful range of various kinds of electronic music genres, Daniela is proving her uncompromising diversity on the dancefloor. GROOVE Magazin said about Daniela in 2021:
"Punk, indie, techno, singing, producing, DJ: Daniela La Luz can do many things" and called her "one of Berlins most exciting live acts".
When playing club sets as a live act, Danielas sound ranges from Chicago House Music to Acid, Dub and Techno.
Next to clear electronic dance music live shows, Daniela was requested to (and enjoyed!) perform shows with the String Quartett from the "Berlin Opera" to the topic of the "Apocalypse" in Szczecin (PL), as well as a with jazz trumpet player Sebastian Soldrzynski or pianist Natyra Elezi.
In 2010 Daniela won the "QWARTZ 6 Electronic Music Award" in the cathegory "Dancefloor & Clubbing" in Paris (FR), among well respected artists like Alejandro Jodorovsky, Laurie Anderson, Gudrun Gut, the ancestors of Pierre Schaeffer and more. Without her knowing, Danielas piece "EllE Routine" (released on the VA Compilation Musik Non Stop Uno from the label Syncopated Musik / Minneapolis, US) was sent to the blind listening jury, selecting out of 4332 music pieces.
Daniela La Luz "Did You Ever" was featured 2017 as closing track on Moodymanns DJ mix for "DJ KICKS" on K7!.
From the beginning, Daniela´s productions made it into the record bags of high profile DJ´s such as Sven Väth, Laurent Garnier, Ken Ishii, Solomun, tINI, Marcel Dettmann and many others. In 2015 "Feel The Future" was released in the mix on tINI´s DJ mix CD with Dana Ruh for Cocoon Ibiza and Daniela has played several times on the "tINI & THE GANG" events on the beautiful island of Ibiza (ES). "Feel The Future" got released short after on Danielas now ex-label "Parallel Berlin".
From 2008 - 2018 Daniela was co-running "Parallel Berlin" as A&R, promoter of dozens of club nights worldwide, as well as on a regular base in Berlins clubs such as About Blank, Tresor, Griessmühle, Kater Blau and more.
With her sharp and playful mind, Daniela loves alternation in everyday life; and that´s why she was keeping her mind busy also with designing all artworks, management, marketing doing line-ups and booking, as well as record labels.
From 2012 - 2018 Daniela had a monthly event residency at Griessmühle (RSO), Berlin, finding and booking the scenes upcoming talents of tomorrow.
2019: Daniela fell into a history of illness, which lastet four years.
forced her to time off for healing during the pandemic. She played only a hand full of gigs, like:
ARTE United We Stream 5/2020 and HÖR Berlin.
