Russian DJ and producer Nina Kraviz is founder of the record label трип, and one of today’s most in-demand electronic music artists. Since leaving behind her former career as a dentist, Nina has brought her deep techno stylings to festivals around the world, including Coachella, Sónar, Awakenings, and Primavera Sound. We were in the audience when Nina became the first international DJ to play an official set on the Great Wall of China in May 2018, live-streaming a set from atop one of its iconic watchtowers. We spoke to her about the once-in-a-lifetime experience, and investigated the growth of underground music culture in China.
