Between the beats: Nina Kraviz
Resident Advisor reveals the highs and lows of life as a touring DJ, they begin their film series with an intimate journey across Europe with Nina Kraviz.
Producer, occasional vocalist, and Nina Kraviz hails from Irkutsk, Siberia. 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.
