As well as being a multi-genre dj who turns heads when singing live in the mix, 34 year old Daniela Rhodes has been throwing herself into opportunities to collaborate and is now also becoming recognised for her vocal and lyrical skills in the studio.
Working completely by ear with no musical training, and after her years as a teen drawing influence from UK garage and singing into her hairbrush, she has the natural ability to create complimentary melodies to accompany electronic productions. This, together with her deep and meaningful lyrics, is sealing Daniela’s reputation within the music community for providing what every producer needs to complete their next sought after tune.
In 2015 came her first collaborative label release ‘Perpetual Motion’ as part of UK drum and bass producer/dj Philth’s Mammoth EP. The track also made it to the ‘We Are 21’ Hospital Records compilation in January 2017.
From drum and bass to house, Daniela is about to see another collaboration released on German label Vamos Music with Weymouth based production trio Sweet LA. Taking influence from the 90’s, ‘Let Me Tell Ya’ is making exclusive appearances on radio show’s in the South of the UK and being very well received.
After meeting whilst playing together and becoming friends on the Parasol Ibiza Tour 2017, Flemcy Music label boss JP Lantieri wasted no time in making contact with Daniela to collaborate and early in the coming New Year their uplifting, progressive journey ‘Inspired’ will be unveiled. Aired exclusively on Laurent Schark’s multi-syndicated selection show last month with a glowing review, and with remixes by several producers starting to come in, ‘Inspired’ is surely set to be the first of many creations between Daniela and JP, so watch this space!
Ambitious and willing to step out of her comfort zone, Daniela isn’t afraid to try new ways of using her voice or adopt new ways of thinking to achieve results. Whether behind the decks or in the studio, she continues to surprise audiences and collaborators alike with her versatility, dedication and the enchanting sounds that float up from her heart, into her mouth and out into the world.
