Daniela works as a producer and writes their own music. Daniela has already worked as a promoter, organized big parties and exhibitions, managed various labels and has done radio. As a communication designer, Daniela contributed their own releases and a lot of art for agencies. Daniela has also toured the world with their music. Their most famous track, “Did You Ever”, is about queer love. “I'm having singing lessons with myself. I want to get back to singing more and I'm working on countless electronic productions of my own, which I want to release and bring to the stage.”
Between 2017 and 2019, Daniela struggled with health issues. This also caused them to move back to Munich from Berlin after 10 years. In February 2020, Daniela played live shows at the Berlinale for Taiwan and at Harry Klein. Then came the pandemic – a drastic cut in their professional life. “I used the pandemic to refocus and learn new coping strategies. I went to therapy and took the time to question everything, trying to find out what I really want to do and what I should use my energy for.” Along with techno artist Nastasia, data analyst Tatjana and many other international musicians, Daniela organized a fundraiser for the victims of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Daniela was born and raised in Munich. As a child, they had to fight discrimination and exclusion because of their Polish migration background. “In the 80s, Poland was somehow more foreign and different for Germans. People would call it ‘Polonien‘ and ‘Polynesien‘, although it’s actually a neighboring country of Germany.” Over the pandemic and their recovery, Daniela has built a new relationship with the city. “Slowly, I dare to say that I feel comfortable here.” Daniela quickly reconnected with the queer community. “When I moved back here, we organized a party, ‘Queer Amore’, which I would have liked to continue.” Their wish is to bring the queer colors of the rainbow more into the public eye.
For Daniela, being queer is also a political statement, which for them personally also means giving up on meat. “For me, being queer is a worldview that is against all exploitation and oppression. If I don't want to put any gender or race into boxes and rate them, then I shouldn't do that with other species either.” Environmentalism and conservation are important parts of queerness for them. “That whole debate around gender is the way forward to a world that genuinely cares about all beings.” Daniela’s queerness, their views and their personality are also reflected in their work. For them, the exchange with people from all over the world and a common consensus, regardless of sexual orientation and identity, are an inspiration.
