In her early twenties she turned out her first productions; within a couple of years She had released a spate of records in labels as Sonic Groove, Traum and Carpark, ranging from ambient, minimal house, techno to downcast new disco and electronic pop.
In 2003, she moves to Berlin, a city that had captured her imagination nine years earlier during the heyday of E-Werk and Tresor.
It was a good move: by 2005 she would release the massive "Acid In My Fridge" for Sven Väth's Cocoon imprint ; the record became a massive hit .
