Her unique and original voice as a producer is a reflection of her journey. She meticulously applies her approach and work ethic to every release under her label, Rabe, ensuring that her music is presented with equal care, thought, and effort. This commitment extends to the overall aesthetic and vision that informs not only her music but also its artwork and presentation.
