Her 1st album “Hertz” received a worldwide release in digital format on the Detroit Underground label. Shortly thereafter, Galcid played at Boiler Room Tokyo in TDME (Tokyo Dance Music Event). The performance attracted more than 360,000 views and more than 500 shares on Facebook.
In July 2017, she embarked on her first EU tour playing shows in Barcelona, London, and Madrid. In 2017, she participated in Iron Island Festival and Mutek Japan garnering high praise in the media.
