Nina Kraviz To Mix First DJ-Kicks of 2015

K7315
Nina Kraviz is an uncompromising artist who can claim as much influence on the current sound of dance music as anyone working in the genre. We're extremely pleased to announce that Nina will be mixing the first DJ-Kicks of 2015.

Known for the stripped down, Chicago and Detroit influence sound of her production on singles such as "Pain In My Ass" and "Ghetto Kraviz," Nina Kraviz has proved to be a driving force in a movement within dance music that prizes raw authenticity and a spontaneous production aesthetic. While that spirit is very much visible on DJ-Kicks, the mix also shows another side of Kraviz's musical identity. “People probably know me for my Dance Mania-inspired, stripped down jacking groove style of DJing," she says, "but the idea behind this particular mix was to create more of a trippy underwater vibe. A mysterious, sonic journey, inspired by the times I used to listen to late night radio growing up and imagine that all the sounds brought to me via the radio waves came directly from space.”

Almost half of the 29 tracks are exclusives from Kraviz’s трип label, including three of her own: ‘Mystery’, ‘IMPRV, ’and ‘Prozimokompleme’. They have a raw, minimalistic stripped down feel that’s clearly inspired by her Chicago and Detroit roots, sharing the same first take vibe.

DJ-Kicks is out January 26th on !K7, and is available now for pre-order via iTunes.
