Nina Kraviz takes the honors of mixing the latest entry in the long running DJ Kicks series. The Russian DJ/producer has proven to be an influential force in the dance circuit with a stripped-down jacking style that can be heard on dance floors worldwide. Here on her DJ Kicks mix, Nina selects a deep and heady set that not only reveals her deep roots in underground music, but also showcases several new tracks from her new label трип (pronounced "trip" as in "trippy"). The double vinyl set features key tracks from the mix in the full length form including acid classics from Armando, techno gems from Plaid and Freak Electrique, sultry beats from Nikita Zabelin and dBridge, ambient washes from Polygon Window (aka Aphex Twin), and an exclusive from Nina herself. Also includes the mix on CD featuring 29 tracks mixed flawlessly as you would expect.
