Biography

Producer, occasional vocalist, and DJ Nina Kraviz hails from Irkutsk, Siberia — not exactly a dance music hot spot. Kraviz fell under the spell of house music during the mid-’90s through radio. A few years later, she moved to Moscow for the sake of studying dentistry and was, briefly part of a trio called MySpaceRocket. The group released one 12”, 2007’s “Amok,” a lean house track with a deep bassline and Kraviz’s breathy vocals; the B-side featured a version from U.K. DJ legend Greg Wilson. Kraviz subsequently went solo and made a splash in 2009, when she issued productions on Efdemin’s Naïf, Jus-Ed’s Underground Quality, and Matt Edwards’ REKIDS. The following year, Kraviz issued another handful of singles, including a sound clash with Sascha Funke that appeared on BPitch Control. “Ghetto Kraviz” was her lone 2011 single and set up the release of her first album, a self-titled set for REKIDS.

    alec_trevelyan i might be 'challenged', though you could only say that regarding my remark about her blatant self-promotion in the ra video. simply put, her attitude displayed there is typical ego-tripping ('injecting personality', as you called it) which, in addition to sexualizing herself, is desrespectful, if not harmful, to women, underground music, especially women *in* the underground music, i.e. female djs. recently, i watched her set from enter. ibiza and her djing is fair, nice track selection, but i still think her production is too naive and straightforward, nothing compelling there, kind of boring really. she's just a fine russian dj (certainly not more talented than Dasha Rush for example) with shitload of fame who got pushed up the berlin techno ladder mainly, although not exclusively, for her charisma/appeal (hence, for her looks, not skills). thanks, but i like my techno genderless and egoless.

    datzo, are you sure you're not just being challenged by her overt sexuality and femininity? Pop business? Well yes she is, but I think its a breathe of fresh air, like the Ghetto Kraviz is a lot funnier than most "DJs" promo videos. In a world dominated by boring highly skilled DJs, I would rather have someone trying to inject some personality, than some mysterious masked man standing behind the decks. I think her combination of pop flare and fresh productions are a welcome addition to the DJ scene. And another thing, Urban Tribe has remixed her. Stingray doesn't just remix anyone.
