On the cover of the new EP from her label Happy new year! We wish you happiness! for which she did a track with DJ Snazzy, is an astonishing illustration: the plans for a soviet school whose construction was planned for the 1960s, but never saw the light of day… It has to be said that Trip, the Russian label founded by the DJ in 2014, likes taking its audiences out their comfort zone, claiming to address just that on this new EP, “the inhospitable extremities of electro music” oscillating between techno and IDM (Industrial Dance Music).

A slightly scruffy style, but it’s certainly never dull. Numéro looks at six key points in her phenomenal career.
