Nina Kraviz (Нина Кравиц) is one of the most significant artists in the global electronic scene.The Siberian born singer, producer, song writer and a DJ is well known as a passionate record digger and for her outstanding taste in idiosyncratic electronic music, which lead her to create her label трип (pronounced trip). In 2015 трип was chosen a record label of the year Mixmag. Since 2016 she has been hosting monthly BBC Radio 1 Residency show.

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 has cemented her reputation as one of the worlds leading selectors releasing her critically acclaimed DJ-kicks album.
