Her turntable skills and stand out live shows have earned her residencies and headlines slots at some of the world's most renowned and exclusive nightclubs, including Ministry of Sound (London), Marquee (New York) and Hakkasan (Las Vegas).
Alongside the club shows, she has also played internationally at festivals from Neon Carnival Coachella, Lollapalooza, SXSW, Glastonbury and Amsterdam Dance Event.
