1. Terranova is a German band made up of current members Fetisch, Marco Meister and Kaos. They have previously went under the moniker Turntable Terranova on the Compost label and sometimes as Edition Terranova. Their music is a fusion of punk rock, electronic and trip hop. They currently reside in Berlin and perform DJ sets at the Berlin night club, Pogo Club.
Terranova’s first release was “Tokyo Tower”, which catapulted Fetisch, Meister and Kaos straight into the British press - exposing a unique sound creation with their fresh blend of hip hop beats and the well-renowned European tradition of electronic music.
At the turn of 1998, Terranova released their highly-revered ‘DJ Kicks…’ compilation album - which gained them further recognition and is still regarded as one of the best and most loved in the highly-respected series. Remixes for Fanatik and Jungle Brothers followed among many others and their subsequent releases that would arrive later on in 1999 for Copasetik, such as ‘Turn Around (feat. Cath Coffey)’ and, more recently, ‘Just Enough’ (which would see the Stereo MC’s linked for some remix action, alongside world-renowned photographer Juergen Teller making his first foray into film direction for the band’s accompanying video) have since ensured that Terranova excursions on vinyl have found their way deep into the record boxes of many a self-respecting DJ. Alongside the previously mentioned work and commissions - so far propelling the guys into some of the most in-demand status around, Terranova now have their debut LP for Copasetik, ‘Close The Door’, unleashed on a global scale.
Asides from representing a full culinary experience for those listening to it, the album stands as a testimony to the whole collaborationist ethic via appearances by the Stereo MC’s very own Cath Coffey (‘Turn Around’, ‘Midnight Melodic’ and ‘Sweet Bitter Love’), label mate - Rasco (‘X-Files’ and ‘Midnight Melodic’), Tricky (‘Bombing Bastards’), Coco Crebitz (a regular in the collective these days) and Alexander Hacke - from “Einstürzende Neubauten.”
To summarise, the musical spectrum encompassed by Terranova, especially throughout their debut long-player, truly defies any definition. But, it certainly can be said that no German act, bar say Kraftwerk, has made it’s mark internationally in quite such a manner. Therefore ‘Close The Door’ is surely destined to open yet further doors still for this Berliner in question…
2. Terranova is an US based Latin group making Salsa Mergengue music, known from the single Llorarás.
3. Terranova are a Seattle rock group, comprising a pair of female vocalists fronting what is effect a male power trio. Appearing to be influenced by 70s hard rock, the music is overlaid with a pop sensibility. At the time of writing a couple of issues are available on Bandcamp, the last of which was an EP released in January 2013.
