Mauro from Hard Ton about "Walking In The Night"

"Well she was in Bologna for a gig and spent here one extra night. On that night, she came to my flat where I've got all my gears and we've started jamming. She played the keys on the Prophet V, I played the 303. The she took the mic and it was magic, only a couple of takes and that was enough. There was also a SH101 bass and a 707 rhythmic pattern, but when she arranged the track, she decided for this stripped down (and beautiful version). That's it!"

In the end I'm surprised this is probably my most played album ever. Wouldn't call this somehow special, but the vibe and mysterious personal touch given to few tracks on this is probably the reason I'm coming back over and over. Following her raw and sometimes hard-to-digest productions nowadays, her debut sounds almost very "pop". In the Rekids collection, this LP is definitely outstanding piece.
Reissue itself is welcomed, the additional 7" with DJ Slugo remixes hadn't made an impression to be honest.

This is probably one of the best album for driving at night.

Lol, the new repress comes with a 7". Good luck hiking the prices up for the first one.

No postcards with mine. Maybe the new copies don't have them?

I agree with my fellow reviewer - this is a quite introspective, overall solid debut album. Many great moments, some obvious flaws. Not groundbreaking, but certainly an artistic achievement which deserves respect. Far more personal, honest and "self-made" music than the average faceless minimal fare. It makes sense that she named the album after herself, making a statement, saying: "This is MY take on music".

What happens here is basically:

1) A female artist makes good music.

2) The music gets promoted on the female artist being a woman and her good looks.

3) Media do the math: good music AND a woman AND good looks = switch on the hype machine!

4) People who haven't heard the female artist's music yet do the math: a woman AND good looks AND media hype = "... the music must be pretty shite if they have to promote it on her looks and sex ..." "... she's probably just another model muppet trying to gain ground in the music world ..."

5) Finally, the good music the female artist has made is met with a certain negative prejudice by people who hear or read about it in the media first.

6) The more hype something gets, the more tempting it becomes for people to make themselves look like true connaisseurs by flaming and hating it without even knowing about it.

Who's fault?
No one's, of course.
Just the way the world works ...

I love this album!
This Nina Kraviz is a wild chick. I feel as if I've been partying with her all these years.
Extremely deep house! This is a sick album, it's like, all these songs could have been the last track of the night and u listen to this album on your headphones when ur walking home
