How much do you really know about Nina Kraviz? Shes a Russian techno DJ, an accomplished producer, one of dance music’s breakthrough names of the last five years. True enough, but theres so much more to her story than that. Shes one of electronic musics most interesting characters, someone who has stuck to her musical guns since day one, someone who has wide-ranging roots that run deep in the past, yet shes also the embodiment of the future. Her signature sound is a raw blend of house and techno with a very acidic feel. If that feels very now, Kraviz has a lot to do with it, which is why she was asked to mix the latest instalment of !K7’s landmark ‘DJ Kicks’ series.
