Terranova (DE) (kompakt) @ TP2012

Behind Terranova is two of the most interesting names in modern electronic music:

German-born but Paris-residing producer Fetisch. Growing up between Brussels, London and New York, his knowledge of the electronic underground is as vast as the influence he has had on the scene – refusing to accept any borders in music is what has made him one of the most distinctive personalities in dance music you will ever find.

Fetisch formed Terranova in 1996 as a project with shifting members and various vocalists to create a blend of electronica, house, hiphop and punk. Terranova’s first compilation was released as a part of the now legendary !K7 DJ Kicks series, and they released their debut album “Close The Door” on the same label back in 1999. It was btw recorded at Connie Planck’s Cologne studio (the same landmark studio where Bowie recorded and Kraftwerk launched their career)…

The other half of Terranova is German tech house genius &Me, who is primarily known for founding- and releasing on the Keinemusik imprint. He has also co-produced music for artists like DJ Hell and DJ T. and remixed acts like Roxy Music, Anthony Rother and Tiefschwartz.

Oh, and for the past six months he has been climbing the European charts like crazy, recently reaching the Top 10 (with two tracks!) at the well-known website for electronic dance music; Resident Advisor.

Lately Fetisch and &Me teamed up and May 2012 saw the release of their full length “Hotel Amour” (Kompakt) – a blend of deep house, pop and electronica – featuring vocals from Denmark’s own Thomas Høffding (WhoMadeWho) and guest appearances from Khan, Snax and many more.

“We grew up and got our education in clubs and will produce and play music until we drop.”
