Nina Kraviz has provided fans with an insight into her mind via a lengthy Facebook post following a set in Melbourne.
It seems that the performance, alongside Marcel Dettmann and Bjarki, angered techno purists as the sound strayed from what they consider ‘full blooded’ techno.
The трип label head took to social media to respond, explaining that she maintains a view of music that is inhabitated by freedom and open mindedness.
“Well what can I say. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but it definitely takes some time, experience and knowledge to form one.”
“I grew up with a slightly different concept about music as one big sonic space with everything wired into each other. Following this concept the bridge between techno and disco is very short. On top of that I believe that music is about freedom of expression and a perfect tool to connect people of a different kind.”
“I personally always loved less obvious or predictable sonic landscapes because the unknown was always more attractive to me than what I already have experienced. I always loved Laurent Garnier for this exact reason and for his ability to connect with music.”
“On this positive note I would like to send my warmest greetings to those who appreciate me for being myself. And those who don’t understand what I am doing – thank you for stopping by.”
