Working with artists such as John Tejada, Fabrice Lig, Dan Curtin, Morgan Geist, Titonton Duvante, Rue East, Arne Weinberg and Ruzina Frankulin, she was strongly influenced by their style of music. Releasing an EP on Starbaby Records in 2001, which included a remix by John Tejada (Kompakt, Palette Recordings) she finally had a chance to put forth her own productions.

His music was described as a fat, fuzzy, quartzy, highly synthetic sound that is bumped along by chunky, restless drum patterns that sit in the exact midpoint between electro and early drum n bass. He appears on the Lagano Lagano: the finest collection of Croatian electronic music (Aquarius Records, 2000.) as well as on electronica remixes compilation American Breakbeat:Rebuilt (Klangkrieg, 2002.) .In 2013.
