Title: Nina Kraviz
Record Label: REKIDS
Genre: Deep House/ Techno
Release Date: 27th February 2012
Muscovite Nina Kraviz has risen swiftly to the top of many peoples’ ‘favourite producer’ pile in the last two years. It’s her simple but infectious take on deep house and techno which has seen the starlet release on connoisseur labels like Underground Quality, Cocoon, BPitch and, of course, Rekids. The multi-talented DJ, producer and singer is now set to release her eponymously entitled debut LP on the revered Rekids imprint on 27th February 2012. To check out the album preview click here.
Playing out like a full artistic statement rather than just a collection of tracks, the odd time signatures, innocent and waify vocals, muted acid lines and hypnotic loops layered up by Nina all work subtly at pulling you into her world. Nothing on the album reaches out to make a grab for your attention; its much mores sensitive than that, instead working its way under your skin and staying there much longer than most house or techno records.
REKIDS010CD PROMO – Nina Kraviz by rekids
Though it explores a number of different styles, surfaces and moods, there’s a simple underlying beauty which holds the whole of Nina Kraviz together, from the sparse acid daydream of opener “Walking in the Night” to the otherworldly and fatalistic ambient closer ‘Fire’ via the smooth classicist depths of tracks like “Love or Go.’ This is an album which sounds best digested as a whole, from start to finish. That way, you find yourself fully immersed in Kraviz’s most honest and heartfelt world, just as she intended.
