The Russian producer became techno’s most divisive figure after filming an interview in the bath.

Here, she discusses sexism, her ‘emotional’ DJ sets and raving on the Great Wall of China.

Russian techno titaness Nina Kraviz opened up about how she feels techno is “underestimated” as a genre.

“It’s a phenomenon, it’s as important as jazz,” Kraviz said about techno in the interview with The Guardian. “It’s incredibly rich, culturally, but it’s so underground that it took me 15 years to have even a little bit of a frame of reference. There are still areas that I don’t know about.”

Sexist comments about her mixing skills and men leering during her live streams is still a thing
“I try not to think about it, but the majority of people are maybe not that interested in music on a deep level.”

She calls her approach “raw”,

“When I DJ, I’m fucking alive,” she says. “All my channels are open. People think I’m on drugs, but I’m not – I’m just really experiencing it.”
