Nina Kraviz is a one-woman show. She sings, she produces, she DJs, and it’s for that reason that she is one of the most influential voices in the underground electronic world. Since breaking through with standout releases on Underground Quality, she has become an essential member of the Rekids family, releasing a string of EPs on the long running label including her self-titled debut album.
There are hypnotic and sensuous qualities to all of the music this Siberian makes: it stems from the way she works, using her voice as an instrument and preferring to record from the first take. Listen to the deep, stripped back but emotionally resonant tracks like those that make up her self-titled debut album and you will find it hard to disagree. For her new music video “Fire”, Nina worked with New York based photographer Yulia Skya. With her directorial debut, Yuliya took no shortcuts, heading to the desolate and ominous Death Valley, Mojave desert, to unearth not just a music video, but an art piece. She explains: “There exists a unique relationship, one between a finite being and the infinite. The project explores this in the Mojave desert, with Mars in mind”.
