A DJ with teeth

JU­NIOR SPESH Twisted Pep­per, Dublin Thurs 10pm ¤10/¤8 01-8734800 There’s a first time for ev­ery­thing, and this may well be the first time a for­mer den­tist has taken a star­ring role at Ju­nior Spesh. From Irkutsk in south­east­ern Siberia, Nina Kraviz (be­low) is a DJ and pro­ducer with a ris­ing pro­file on the back of her highly ef­fec­tive deep, dark and slo-mo house grooves, which put a new spin on clas­sic house shapes. You’ll find many of these grooves on Nina’s re­cent self-ti­tled de­but al­bum on Matt Ed­wards’ Rekids la­bel.

It was the 2006 Red Bull Mu­sic Academy in Mel­bourne that put Kraviz on the pro­duc­tion track, while a long-run­ning res­i­dency at Moscow’s ace Pro­pa­ganda club put her on the DJ map. These days you’ll find Kraviz on the Euro­pean tour­ing cir­cuit play­ing fes­ti­vals, Ibiza clubs and big rooms.

Sup­port from Lee Kelly and the Ju­nior Spesh DJs.
