She has also been very well received by critics, DJs and producers across the scene.

Sam Paganini - Gravity [JAM]

"This track had such a profound impact on us when we heard it for the first time. Stunning track by Sam Paganini included on his latest album Zenith. So deep, not Techno but a very beautiful piece of electronic music that we use for closing our sets most of the times since we got it, this is how music should be made, refined, soulful and emotional."

Dense & Pika - Just A Beat [Drumcode]

"Another Drumcode record in our bag, this time by one of the greatest Techno producer for us, Dense & Pika. We think this record has such a moody blend of Raw Techno, random vocal and modular synth… We’re pretty sure that it’s one of the top 5 Techno records to have been released in the last 12 months, It really makes people shout and jump, proper dancefloor killer masterpiece."

Michael Mayer - Pride is Weaker than Love (Speicher 2)

"This is a track that breaks the dancefloor and it's 100% timeless. It has a set of synths that are intertwined and generate a state of madness to the audience. The vocal is really special with some reverb and delays added on it. A set of atmospheres that appear and disappear make of this one of the best tracks in our time in electronic music with an undeniable German touch."

ABFAHRT - Come into my life (S.M.I.L.E. Version)

"This piece is an artwork in electronic music. Synth base, a groove that annihilates the rooms with redoubles, acid touches, a perfect voice and lyrics that thrill in the choruses. Accompanied by some beautiful atmospheres that penetrate in the soul of the audience. It's a trip through the public's minds."

New Order - Crystal (Get Ready Album)

"This song is a hymn for electronic's lovers. Mixed with acoustics, there is an intense groove accompanied by guitars and vocals that create a contrast between sweetness and forcefulness. For us, the best part of the track is the break where is played a magic piano alongside organic bass and the strength of all the rest of elements perfectly blended together."
