Her commitment to sustaining the energy on the dance floor and her thorough understanding of groove through her love of house, disco and boogie records is evident through her track selection.

In our opinion, she's not only one of the best DJs in Aus, but truthfully for us, in the world. That’s not hyperbole, that’s the truth. We’ve seen her play to every type of crowd, in every type of situation and she’s nailed it. Every – damn – time,” they of the upcoming compilation.
