“her souped-up Brazilian chatter collides head-on with Sonora’s Latin-flavored bass. As you might imagine, sparks fly everywhere and stuff catches on fire.”
“Sonora found a way of taking those songs and making them more articulate. What comes out is something like tropical disco.” – MTV Iggy

“Sonora is definitely the most prolific producer that this whole new electropical scene has given us.” – Remezcla Musica
