Her first techno release on “Fullpanda “was quite successful, track called “Shtirlitz” was taking places in various dj’s charts. In 2006 her debut album “Forms ain’t Formats”, where she combine dancefloor rhythms and bass lines with experimental soundscapes, mixing cold industrial with minimalistic atmosphere . This release provoke numerous reaction and reviews from international music magazines, dj , producers as well as several following Ep’s.

Where roots of such sound partially go back to the early 20th century that rise to significant Art Movements now days ,that encouraged experimentation with various musical (and non musical) forms, while rejecting more conventional, tradition-bound styles of expression
