Nina Kraviz

Last Night a DJ Saved My Life

 

Perhaps the most famous female DJ, or at least in my mind, Nina Kraviz is a producer,  occasional vocalist, and DJ Nina Kraviz hails from Irkutsk, Siberia, Russia. By the end of 2000's, she was living in Moscow, working as a dentist at a war veterans' hospital by day and holding down a club residency on Friday nights.

 

She tours relentlessly and champions the harder, stranger elements of techno, although many of her sets will appeal to house heads. What I enjoy most about her set is that she enjoys herself throughout, she’s not a DJ bouncing around for the crowd - she’s lost in the music, all on her own! and in a world of overly PC comments she continues to spur debate surrounding implications of femininity and sexuality in electronic music.

 

Kraviz released her self-titled debut album in February 2012 through the Rekids record label.

She started her own record label in 2014, named трип (Trip) finding new, mostly Russian artists, and bringing once-lost rave music back into focus.
