“A bit more of an ambient concept, which is very busy, hustling techno-tronica. It gets its grooves on with an insistent thumping beat. There is an interesting artist operating somewhere in this electronic maze: it would be nice to hear her emerge more.”
Kevin Renick - Playback Magazine (St.Louis, USA)
“It grabbed my attention with beautiful experimental-ambient electronic pieces featuring a warm keyboard wash, echoing female vocals and light tinkling programming”
“Even if it absolutely has its doses with backward-leaned & relaxing sequences, rock-ish elements often appear and break the patterns. The blend of those elements makes the music interesting, not only for the conscious electronica lover, but also for them who originally think this type of music is stagnating.” Oyvind Lien - Oppland Arbeidsblad (Norway)
“A stunning electro-ambient sounds of oriental atmosphere with mellow melodies on efficient bass grooves”
Sound.jp/Disco-Club (Tokyo, Japan)
“Her music has the influence of Abòn in the experimental section but due to the female identity, creates a more sensational atmosphere”
Skylight Magazine (Greece)
