She has been committed to building her own catalogue of recordings since then... and has worked with an eclectic group of vocalists and musicians often taking people out of their associated genres and giving them a platform to branch out into unknown territory. Many of these relationships started from her early days of remixing fellow artists like label mates, The Pharcyde and The Brand New Heavies as well as other acts like Spearhead, DJ Food, Frente, Monday Michiru and more... Some of these early introductions led to her producing tracks for Tre Hardson, Mystic, Jacky Terrasson and Monday Michiru. Always a big advocate of the artist, she took Mystic under her wing and was instrumental in getting her signed to GoodVibe Recordings. The Angel produces an undefinable mixture of downtempo atmospherics, with hints of hip hop, reggae, jazz, dub and soul all infused with her own vibe.
Because she programs and engineers all of her recordings the ideas are coming out undiluted... though collaborating with other artists has always produced something unique as well as spiritually satisfying. The cinematic quality of her work led her to film scoring. She's one of a small handful of female composers... "Boiler Room" and "Gridlock'd" are among the films she has worked on and the UK feature, "Kidulthood."
