Awakenings Easter Thursday
Thu Apr 9
The Siberian taste maker is well known for her musically uncompromising energetic DJ performances, where she plays music most others wouldn’t dare and for her sincere connection to the audience. This unique feeling together with a badass attitude and charismatic stage persona have earned Nina Kraviz headliner status at the world’s leading festivals including Coachella, Amsterdam Dance Event, Awakenings, Dekmantel, Sonar, DEMF, and many more. Kraviz is equally comfortable rocking big festival crowds as she is to work her magic in a small intimate club.
Kraviz regularly plays the most reputable clubs in Europe, Japan and North America - Concrete in Paris, legendary Robert Johnson in Offenbach and Air in Tokyo, Fabric in London, Berghain in Berlin, Output in New York. Each summer she’s greatly in demand in Ibiza; as a resident at Richie Hawtin’s Enter until its closure, DC-10 and as a regular at Cocoon parties at Amnesia and Carl Cox’s “Revolution” party at Space.
Kraviz’s discography starts in 2007 when her first 12” was released on Greg Wilson’s B77 label, after Kraviz gave him a demo at the RedBull Music Academy where she was a participant. Then followed the “Voices Remix Project“ and "First Time EP" on Jus Ed’s Underground Quality imprint in 2008. The following year the ‘Pain In The Ass’ EP on Rekids as well as a few strong remixes helped to propel Kraviz onto the world stage. Alongside ‘I’m Gonna Get You’ and ‘Pain In The Ass', perhaps her biggest track to date is ‘Ghetto Kraviz’, her homage to Chicago’s Dance Mania label, taken from her critically acclaimed 2012 self-titled debut album. "Mister Jones" was the last EP Kraviz released on Rekids before focusing entirely on her own трип imprint where she has been regularly releasing her own music as a part of Trip's conceptual compilation series ( tracks “IMRV”, “Let’s do it”, "I believe I can fly”-simple yet effective live cuts on modular were all released on трип imprint).
In 2015 Kraviz cemented her reputation as one of the worlds leading selectors releasing her critically acclaimed DJ-kicks album. While 2016 saw Nina praised and acknowledged in the media and industry for her curation, taste and skills - her label trip was voted the #2 label of the year by Resident Advisor and in December she released her stand-out mix for the long-running fabric CD series. Plans for 2017 include a new more experimental label to run alongside Trip and new curated events in special locations around the world.
