Nina Kraviz has issued a repress of her 2009 tech-house EP, Pain In The Ass, on Radio Slave's UK record label, Rekids. The tracks have the instantly recognizable flavor of Kraviz sexy vocals, with the title track employing a deep and minimal beat with chirping high-hats. The B side is equally rooted in silky vocab, with a driving minimal drum set that taps and pushes towards psychedelic chants and deep house euphoria. With poetry like this, it is easy to see why everyone was paying attention to this record when it first came out.
The cheapest price on Discogs for a "near-mint" condition copy of this record goes for $50.12, but the repress is available today for only $8.78 plus shipping. There was a repress of this record back in 2012, but the stock was instantly off the shelves and actually drove up the resale price on-line, much to the dismay of listeners who waited 3 years for the last repress. With a recent set at Awakenings 2015, and a new Boiler Room set live from Scotland last week, it's probably best to grab this record while it is still available.
