NINA KRAVIZ: "WHEN A WOMAN GETS SUCCESSFUL THERE'S A BIT OF DEBATE"

Nina Kraviz has spoken out about the sexism she has encountered during her career as a DJ.

In a recent interview with Mixmag, the Russian house producer said: "There’s an attitude still in the Eastern Bloc that women are good for the bedroom and the kitchen but not much else – so when a women gets successful there’s a bit of a debate."

Kraviz has risen to prominence as one of the hottest talents in house and her new self-titled LP on Rekids has been widely acclaimed by critics across the board.

She also said: “I’ve had really mean comments from all over Europe, people asking who I slept with to get where I am, or saying that a man must be doing all the work for me!"

Sadly, this is by no means the first time sexism in dance music has come to the fore.

Though, if you've seen Kraviz play or heard her productions, you'll know she needs help from no man.
