Clasico made its debut with the release of Conffintexts’ EP, ‘Touch‘ in 2023 — speaking toMixmag shortly after the release, she described being “honoured” at being involved “so early in the label’s journey”

“Their drive and excitement was very motivating, and it’s been very heartwarming to receive such consistent support on the release already — because I am very pleased with it sonically.”
