Both last year and this year is truly Nina’s. The bigger the stage the more fearless her selection; and the further away she has moved from the standard template of drops and builds the deeper she has explored what she calls ‘the continuum’ of electronic music. For anyone who hasn’t heard her play live, her 2017 Essential Mix is a good starting-point: an intense, primal exercise in everything that defines Nina the DJ (follow up with her b2b session with Mumdance at Unsound for Rinse FM for a taste of her astonishing range). Meanwhile, her ‘Pochuvstvui’ EP on Trip perfectly represents her evolution as a producer.
Born in the town of Irkutsk in Siberia, where huge Communist-era tower blocks loom over picturesque wooden houses built by 19th century political exiles banished there by the Tsar and temperatures can reach -35C in the winter and 35C in summer, Nina grew up in a family that held music in high regard. She was surrounded her father’s collection of rock, jazz, pop music and of course disco, sounds that are all still close to her heart. Moving through a range of professions, including studying medicine and working as a dentist, she also started DJing (rare groove, disco, funk and 70s soundtracks, with the acid techno that underpins so much of her music to this day becoming an increasing influence) and released a mix CD in 2006 called ‘Hi-Brow Dance’ (“disco with acid, classic stuff. Lots of different types of disco.”)
