The universe of Minizza was born from the joining of various contrasting musical genres, stylistically tied together through electronic processing. It’s strength: drawing original ideas from experimental music that reinforce pop music’s catchy composition.

With luxurious ambiences, Minizza’s first album is simultaneously catchy yet demanding. Music for Girls is a musical trip that gently starts by caressing one’s auditory senses, with tracks like Monoball, and gradually warms up to the more experimental climates of the later songs.
Music for Girls is a declaration of love to all forms of music, such as :

- funk and bossanova, to which Demon Lover and Je suis mort pay tribute through their radical adaptations,
- pop, for example, those of Gainsbourg and Katerine,
- electronica creative and innovative; artists such as Atom Heart or Mouse on Mars would be worthy representations,
- musique concrète which we hear in Juste avant l’orage, Y a-t-il de l\'eau sur Mars ? or En Forêt.

Active in the music scene, Minizza invited various artists to collaborate on Music for Girls:
- The Kings of Convenience, of which Minizza "covered" the track Winning a battle, losing the war, which appeared in the 2004 release of Erlend Oye’s DJ-Kicks. Erlend previously had sought Minizza’s unique style in The Athlete on his solo album Unrest, released by Source in 2003.
- Edward Ka-Spel, the charismatic leader of the mythical Legendary Pink Dots, radically deviated from his typical gothic style in Globally Yours, a new-wave dance track that would astound current fans.
- Roel Meelkop, who lent his minimalistic mastery to En Forêt, giving it an evocative intensity.
- Erik Arnaud brings a pop-rock taste to the dark Mutilé de guerre.

But between pop and experimental music, the light and the obscure, things aren’t so simple. The tracks on Music for Girls play towards a delightful contradiction : beneath bouncy vibes often hides a deeper melancholie, and from the abyss of the final tracks escapes a glimmer of recomforting beauty. Music for Girls is one of those rare albums which evokes complex emotions in the listener, all the while inspiring a sense of wellness.
