Lipstick Disco’s 2016 Christmas musical advent calendar – we’ll be bringing a daily dose throughout December of 24 kick-ass women, who’ve been making and playing kick-ass music in 2016.



With all the end of year lists being printed, todays advent is a name that appears frequently among those lists. Nina Kraviz was recently announced as Resident Advisors top 22 and Mixmags top 5 DJ from 2016. The Siberian DJ, has often sparked attention with her stunning looks, opening discussions about feminism and sexuality in the industry, but the Dentist-turned DJ is certainly not just a pretty face and anyone who’s been lucky enough to witness one of her sets, will understand why she’s revered among the worlds finest DJ’s – a true entertainer, an incredible selector and seamless mixer, one of Techno’s top dogs and true talents.

While she’s been floating around at the top for a while, she’s not complacent and she totally brought it in 2016, thumbing through the line-ups of the major global electronic festivals, there are very few this year which didn’t include Nina and she’s already been announced for Sonar, Field Day and Awakenings for 2017.  A huge presence in Ibiza, inclduing residencies and guest sets at DC-10, Amnesia and Space. Kraviz also just this month released a mix for the highly esteemed Fabric mix series and this year she has been hosting a monthly BBC Radio 1 residency.

As well as a busy DJ schedule, her label трип (Trip) is making huge waves too, 2015 it was chosen by Mixmag as ‘Record Label Of The Year’ and just this month, RA’s label of the month. 2016 трип has had a solid set of release – 3 from Iclandic producer Bjarki, and two compilation EP’s ‘Sleep Not Found‘, and ‘When I Was 14‘ the latter of which includes a track of her own, ‘Don’t Mind Wrong Keys‘ which serves as Kravizs’ only production release this year, and this is the track we’re bringing your for todays advent.
