The album ‘No Place’ was about finding myself and in 2022 I think I found myself. I just decided to create a light dance album for you that will touch you to the depths of your soul, because it is inspired by the new events and people I have met during this time. I share my fresh look at electronic music with you in this new album. Its full name was: ‘Yes! I think I found a place’, but I decided to shorten it and leave it to just ‘Yes Place’ as opposed to the last album ‘No Place’.”— Biicla
