Three years after she triumphantly closed the first NS Days at La Sucrière, Nina Kraviz returns to put her own unique stamp on a whole day of the festival.
Nina Kraviz (Нина Кравиц) is one of the most recognisable artists in the global electronic scene.The Siberian born singer, producer, song-writer and DJ is well known as a passionate record digger and for her outstanding taste in idiosyncratic electronic music, uncompromising emotionally charged DJ performances and charismatic stage persona.
Last year Nina mixed the 91st fabric compilation, displaying her depth of musical imagination and subtle deftness behind the decks that elegantly bridge decades, genres and beloved influences, and ultimately proving her once again to be a master of the unconventional ride. Her label трип (pronounced trip) has garnered widespread critical acclaim for it’s unique concept album releases and distinctive artwork, topping end of year lists in Mixmag, FACT and RA. She began 2017 by announcing plans for her new experimental psychedelic label, GALAXIID.
Nina’s first releases were on Jus-Ed’s Underground Quality label, a musical family of huge importance to her that she’s happily reuniting for this special line-up at NS Days. Jus-Ed, Fred P, Joey Anderson, Levon Vincent and Nina will all play together for a rare Underground Quality all stars show. Nina will play a house set for the occasion and Jus-Ed will orchestrate all the artists, telling the DJs when to play in real time. Also on the line up are Russian duo PTU performing live ahead of their first solo record on Trip.
2017 seems like the perfect year for a reunion and the sealing of a special bond between a peerless artist and the Nuits Sonores festival.
