Artists to Watch in 2019: Roza Terenzi
ROZA TERENZI isn’t Melbourne producer Katie Campbell’s first musical foray. You may remember her previous project, Catlips, but it is in Roza Terenzi that we see a sound where Campbell feels most at home.
Kicking off in 2017 with her debut EP that’s cheekily titled The “O.G.”, the release is a spacious, visceral addition to the Good Company Records back catalogue. It was a release that saw wavy electro move into something a little more crunchy with a hefty bassline and breaks, and finally moving into more delicate territory with the final original, ‘Higher Place’. Not to mention Jayda G closes out the EP with a (very) ‘Deep In Your Soul’ mix of ‘Yeh Yeh Yeh’ and the EP’s closer.
Since then, her releases have become very regular, to the point where since that debut EP in 2017, she’s put out records with Voyage Recordings, Kalahari Oyster Cult, Salt Mines and local legends Butter Sessions. The frequency of the releases are always a welcome listen, with Roza consistently finding new ways to captivatingly broaden the scope of her sound. All of her releases have been highly anticipated, and moreover, received excellently too.
2018 saw Roza headed overseas for the first time, playing shows across Europe, Canada, the UK and more. She also debuted her live set, hosted radio shows on Rinse FM and Melbourne’s Skylab Radio, put together mixes for the likes of Moxie and her show on NTS Radio, Redlight Radio in Amsterdam and heaps more.
I can bet that Roza‘s sitting on a whole bunch of music that’s going to blow our minds. Bring on 2019!
