Junior Spesh


Twisted Pepper, Dublin Thurs 10pm €10/€8 01-8734800

There’s a first time for everything, and this may well be the first time a former dentist has taken a starring role at Junior Spesh. From Irkutsk in southeastern Siberia, Nina Kraviz (pictured) is a DJ and producer with a rising profile on the back of her highly effective deep, dark and slo-mo house grooves, which put a new spin on classic house shapes. You’ll find many of these grooves on Nina’s recent self-titled debut album on Matt Edwards’ Rekids label.

It was the 2006 Red Bull Music Academy in Melbourne that put Kraviz on the production track, while a long-running residency at Moscow’s ace Propaganda club put her on the DJ map. These days you’ll find Kraviz on the European touring circuit playing festivals, Ibiza clubs and big rooms.

Support from Lee Kelly and the Junior Spesh DJs.
