Nina Kraviz is a Siberian born singer, producer, song-writer and DJ renowned as a passionate record digger and for her outstanding taste in idiosyncratic electronic music. One of the world’s most in demand DJs, her hunger to dig deep into the archives of electronic music means her surprising and unique sets serve as a master class in both the past and future. Her earliest international solo hits appeared on Underground Quality and Rekids, where she released her album ‘Ghetto Kraviz’, with a DJ Kicks mix the following year. But her unique sound and uncompromising attitude led to the creation of her own label трип in 2014, where she’s able to fully realise her heartfelt divergent aesthetic.
"This mix is of course where I am as a DJ and record collector, but it’s also where I am as a listener and it’s what makes me groove at the moment. People call this a brain dance … This mix is a trippy acidic dream with a lot of different emotions along on the way. And as it was recorded at different times and places, under different circumstances, it’s naturally absorbed all these very different emotions..." Nina Kraviz
fabric 91 is pieced together from a series of live takes and careful listening will reveal two narratives, separated by a breath, weaving together techno, IDM, electronica, ambient and lots of acid. The mix includes many collectors’ rarities like Bedouin Ascent, Frak, Torul V and DJ Slip, as well as underexposed Russian 90s IDM and electronica from Species of Fishes and New Composers & Pete Namlook. Some of Nina’s favourite but less known acid stompers feature in the mix including Woody McBride aka DJ ESP, Air Liquide, I-f, Unit Moebius, DJ Tuttle, Thomas P Heckmann and Aphex Twin, displaying Nina’s personal take on acid and acid trance drawn from practitioners across the globe. The mix also introduces numerous unreleased tracks from трип (trip) - in fact, the mix features no current releases at all. Every track is either a classic rarity or unreleased treasure from the future. Nina’s depth of musical imagination and subtle deftness behind the decks elegantly bridge decades, genres and beloved influences on fabric 91, proving her once again to be a master of the unconventional ride.
