Kraviz’s discography starts in 2007 when her first 12 inch was released on Greg Wilson’s B77 label after Kraviz gave him a demo at the RedBull Music Academy where she was a participant. Then followed the “Voices Remix Project“ and "First Time EP" on Jus Ed’s Underground Quality imprint in 2008. The following year the ‘Pain In The Ass’ EP on Rekids as well as a few strong remixes helped push Kraviz onto the world stage. Alongside ‘I’m Gonna Get You’ and ‘Pain In The Ass', perhaps her biggest track to date is ‘Ghetto Kraviz’, her homage to Chicago’s Dance Mania label, taken from her critically acclaimed 2012 self-titled debut album. "Mister Jones" was the last EP Kraviz released on Rekids before focusing entirely on her own трип imprint where she has been regularly releasing her own music as a part of the label's conceptual compilation series (tracks “IMPRV”, “Let’s do it”, "I believe I can fly” - simple yet effective live cuts on modular were all released on трип imprint)
In 2015 Kraviz has cemented her reputation as a world's leading selector after releasing critically acclaimed dj-kicks album.
