RELEASE INFO:

 

Unique and boundary-pushing artist Daniela La Luz announces her highly anticipated 3rd album, ‘System Reset’.

For the first time, Daniela has personally compiled all the music and artworks, showcasing her signature diversity in this 11-track collection of genre-blending gems, while remaining rooted in electronic dance music.

The album will be released on double vinyl on June 14th and digitally on June 21st on her record label 'Dimension Of Being Human', founded during the pandemic.

Having spent a decade in Berlin, Daniela now resides in Munich, infusing her diverse experiences into this LP.

Daniela, celebrated for her live sets and productions, has earned support from high-profile DJs like Solomun, Adam Port, and Sven Väth. Detroit's Moodymann featured her track "Did You Ever" on his "DJ Kicks" mix, nearing 3 million plays on Spotify.

-> Daniela introduces 'System Reset':

"Due to a cascade of personal crises, I needed a 'System Reset' and chose this title to draw a parallel to our planet's circumstances and the duality of life and death.

This album is a mix of dancefloor-oriented pieces and acapellas, ranging from classic house to techno and dub, flavored with electro, wave, jazzy, and breakbeat influences. Amidst the hedonistic and fun-loving existence of modern humans, the fundamental theme of duality highlights the rising troubles of our sick planet. We seem to not understand the difference between civilization and technology, feeling invincible. Nevertheless, life and death coexist as the world keeps turning.

Half of 'System Reset' was written and recorded in Berlin, the other half in Munich, connecting my past, present, and future. The artworks were AI-generated. The double vinyl artwork prints include all lyrics for sing-along purposes. I sing in English, Polish, and Arabic.

What's important about my musical works: The initial first take, the first wave of intense creative energy and emotion, carves the path for a composition. 'The Power Of The Now' marks my workflow as a producer, musician, songwriter, and singer. It defines my style and excludes overworking my compositions endlessly. When it's written, it's written. The unique vibe of the moment dominates over the perfect, endlessly refined sound engineering. Each track is crafted with the same care and spontaneity.

The album funding from 'Initiative Musik' allowed me to collaborate with others and manage all involved processes. For the first time, I let others handle the mixing of my music. The sound and structure remained unchanged, but several parts received noticeable sound improvements. Most tracks on this LP were mixed by Tobi Neumann and J Manuel at Riverside Studios Berlin, with mastering by Manmade in Berlin."

_ My wish

As an artist, I have a profound wish to use my voice and music as a beacon of hope and a call to action. Our planet is facing an unprecedented climate catastrophe, demanding urgent attention and collective effort. Through my art, I strive to inspire, knowing that music has the power to unite us, transcending borders and differences. I believe that together, we can create a symphony of change. Let us rise as one global community, harnessing our creativity and passion to protect our precious Earth. Join me on this journey. Let our voices become a harmonious force that promotes sustainability, respects nature, and fights for a good future for our planet and its citizens. Together, we can make a difference.

... Generating 1,000 images with a powerful AI model, such as Stable Diffusion XL, is responsible for roughly as much carbon dioxide as driving the equivalent of 4.1 miles in an average gasoline-powered car. ...

 

... Google once estimated that an average online search used 0.3 watt-hours of electricity, equivalent to driving 0.0003 miles (30 meters) in a car. Today, that number is likely much higher, because Google has integrated generative AI models into its search, says Vijay Gadepally, a research scientist at the MIT Lincoln lab. ...
