Siberian producer/singer Nina Kraviz is in North America this week and next surrounding her appearance at Movement Electronic Music Festival, which goes down in Detroit this weekend. While she's here, she'll play a NYC show on June 2 at a TBA location. The show is in celebration of Blkmarket's 6th anniversary and also includes Aril Brikha, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, and Talmur & Fahad. RSVP to email@example.com for more info and location, which will be announced the day of the event, and pick up tickets at Resident Advisor. The flier for this show is below. Nina will return to North America in the fall for more dates including Seattle's Decibel Festival with Actress, John Talabot, Maria Minerva, Matthew Dear, Dam-Funk, Julianna Barwick, Ariel Pink and more.
Nina released her self titled debut LP earlier this year via Rekids. It's a real moody, downtempo album that might sound a little better in your headphones on your walk home from the club than playing through the PA while you're there. The beats are well versed in deep house and minimal techno but with greater attention on the low frequencies of the UK bass scene than other recent deep house purveyors like Blondes and Teengirl Fantasy.
Though her production is impressive, the unquestionable standouts of the album are the tracks that prominently feature her voice. The reverb-washed vocals of album opener "Walking in the Night" show Nina sounding like a hushed Kate Bush. Whereas on tracks like "Choices" or "Love Or Go," she sings in a more chopped up fashion, emulating producers who rely solely on sampling the voices of others, in a manner we've seen thrive on everything from "Everything In Its Right Place" to "The Wilhelm Scream."
Nina released her second single from the album, "Aus," this week, which features three different remixes of the track in addition to the album version. Stream all four of those below, in addition to the album's first single, "Ghetto Kraviz," and two of its remixes. Nina also dropped an Essential Mix earlier this month. You can stream that below too.
Those streams, flier for the NYC show, and a list of all dates are below.
Lindstrom will be releasing a 12" of remixes from his Six Cups of Rebel LP on June 25 with remixes from Oneohtrix Point Never (who plays Ecstatic Summer), Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, and Mark McGuire (of Emeralds). Have a listen to Oneohtrix Point Never's take on "Call Me Anytime" below.
Lindstrom is currently on a tour which brings him to NYC on Friday (5/25) for the previously discussed Webster Hall show with Simian Mobile Disco (tickets). That tour will also bring him to Detroit's Movement Electronic Music Festival this weekend where he'll play alongside Public Enemy, Actress, SBTRKT, Major Lazer, Gold Panda, Nina Kraviz, Matias Aguayo, FaltyDL, AraabMUZIK and more. Tickets for the fest are on sale now. The full lineup is listed below.
