Weaving together hypnotic acid, ’90s rave, and pumping techno, it was on a dancefloor in Tel Aviv that this Russian-born, Israeli-reared artist fell in love with club music. “When the music is right,” she explains, “you can free your mind and just dance without thinking of anything. For me, it’s the best feeling in life, something that brings absolute happiness.”
