“Integrity for me is essential, and is the fundamental virtue of an artist. If you don’t have it you are not a real artist. It’s not easy to have it, because you may lose a lot along the way. But what you get in the end is so much more rewarding and gratifying that its priceless, it has not price on it. So keep your integrity. Keep being true to yourself, keep being real to yourself is the key to success I think.” Ninna V

Current production plans include countless remix projects, future vinyl releases, and collaborations with other notable artists for 2016 and beyond.
