Watch Nina Kraviz throw a rave in an actual cave

Last year, Siberian techno maestro Nina Kraviz launched a label dedicated to the “trippier, acidic side of electronic music.” She named it трип – that’s ‘Trip’ for any non-Cyrillic readers out there – and last month she headed to Iceland, the spiritual home of trippy and ethereal music, to throw a label showcase party with signees Exos and Bjarki, and special guest Blawan.

The showcase party itself took place in an intimate club in Reykjaví­k, but if you were lucky enough to be invited into the inner sanctum, Kraviz also threw a pre-party in – of all places – an Icelandic cave. The ‘90s DIY soundsystem vibes were out in full force, with a generator powering the soundsystem and a small crew of ravers throwing shapes in the spectacular location; to hammer home the ‘90s vibes, Icelandic production crew Eyk even shot the gritty, surreal two-minute aftermovie on VHS.

You can watch that clip below; трип continues its European odyssey with a party featuring Kraviz, Exos and Bjarki in a Barcelona warehouse tonight (Thursday 18 June).
