When I heard her voice for the first time, I knew that we were a great match and I am very happy that we found each other and could make this collaboration. We're both on the same wavelength and we express that with the song. I'm looking forward to the release and further collaborations with Ekko.”

She has also supported the likes of electronic music legends David Guetta, Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond and many more.

Though "Korolova" might be a relatively new alias, the talent behind it has been nurturing her musical passion for over a decade. It's a culmination of ten years of experiences that makes her sets so uniquely transcendent. Her records are journeys – weaving tales of trance, exhilaration, and euphoria. Her collaborations, spanning artists like Jan Blomqvist, Spada, and Tube & Berger, are auditory testimonies to her genius.

A multifaceted talent, her roots lie in ballet, gracing stages in Ukraine's paramount venue, Beach Club 117, and marquee shows like Sensation White. A transformation from pursuing mathematics to immersing in music marked a pivotal turn in her life, and she hasn't glanced back since.
​At the core of Korolova's inspiration lies her daughter, her muse. It's this profound connection that compels her to consistently discover fresh rhythms and emotions. With an American co-headlining tour with Franky Wah on the horizon, the future is luminous for this unparalleled artist, as she continues to shine brighter with each beat.
