Sprouting from the heydays of the early 90s rave scene, Terranova is an electronic dance music duo comprised of Berlin and Paris based artists Fetisch and &ME. In the words of Terranova: “We grew up and got our education in clubs and will produce and play music until we drop.”
Fetisch was born in Berlin and grew up between Brussels, London and New York. His boundary-spanning influence and distinctive personality have trademarked his position as a mover and a shaker in the underground scene.
Spending his teenage nights at New York’s legendary Mudd Club, Roxy, and Paradise Garage – Fetisch began garnering influences from punk and hip-hop to ultimately formulate the Terranova sound. He launched his career by spinning records at NY mainstay clubs Danceteria and Tunnel, and regularly DJing at illegal warehouse raves in NYC and London. Moving back to Berlin in the mid ‘90s, Fetisch formed Terranova in 1996 as a project with shifting members and various vocalists to create his visionary blend of electronica, house, hip-hop, and punk.
In 2007, Fetisch teamed up with Ghanaian DJ and founder of Keinemusik, &ME, and signed with Kompakt out of Cologne. Since then, Terranova released through iconic dance labels such as Ministry of Sound, DJ Hells Gigolo Records, Compost, Island Records and !K7. Fetisch continues his work with &ME, who is now a solid member of Terranova and their notorious famed act, The Lottergirls. They’ve gone on writing and producing soundtracks for movies and theatre, as well as a long list of remixes for groups as diverse as New Order, Roxy Music, Fisherspooner, Ennio Morricone, Gui Boratto, and Herbert Groenemeyer.
