The superstar Russian DJ delivers a dynamic hour of techno from her трип label, with exclusive new material.
Growing up in the Siberian city of Irkutsk, Nina Kraviz fell in love with ’90s house music on the radio. After moving to Moscow to study dentistry, she discovered raving, and started working as a producer and vocalist with the trio MySpaceRocket. Going solo in 2009, she released original music on labels like Naïf, Underground Quality and REKIDS, with her 2012 self-titled debut album released on the latter. On top of several solo and collaborative singles, Kraviz has become a behemoth in the contemporary techno landscape through her DJing: She’s cultivated a playful, brave and ferocious style of mixing and performance that draws from the harder edges of acid, ghettotech, trance and techno, plus the deeper, cosmic styles in between. In 2014, Kraviz started her own label, трип (Trip), and later the sub-label Galaxiid, focusing on cutting-edge dark techno from artists such as Iceland’s Bjarki and Finland’s Aleksi Perälä.
