Nina Kraviz, one of the world's most recognisable and productive female DJs, will do two shows in SA, starting this Friday in Cape Town.
Nina Kraviz literally has the world at her finger tips and apart from being a part of the Underground Quality family she does her house and disco beats for Rekids and Phillip Solmann's aka Efdemin's Naif label.
Kraviz will be supported in Cape Town and Johannesburg by Killer Robot and Coco Loco. You can catch the Siberia-born DJ in Cape Town at the iconic City Hall, while the Johannesburg leg will be hosted at Alex Theatre in Braamfontein.

Kraviz is the complete package. She sings, produces and DJs, and it's for that reason that she is one of the most influential voices in the underground electronic world. Since breaking through with standout releases on Underground Quality, she has become an essential member of the Rekids family, releasing a string of EPs and a very personal debut album on the long-running label.
With a long-time passion for house and techno that dates back to her days as a journalist, Kraviz is first and foremost a DJ, and one engrained with the roots of her first love – Chicago house and Detroit techno. Her hunger to dig deep into the archives of the genres balances all of her sets perfectly between now and then.
There seems to be no slowing down for Kraviz. Recent projects include remixing DVS1 and Dance Mania's legendary Parris Mitchell, as well filming a new video in the Mojave Desert for album track Fire. A new compilation album follows in spring 2014 with additional new releases to keep us excited as the year goes on.
