Marina about her musical roots:
"I was into hip-hop music and extreme sport as a teenager, hanging out in the clubs, where at the same hip-hop night played drum and bass and techno music, later when I moved to Moscow and started to be a part of the dance community my tastes evolved into funk, house and future beats music, later on dancing to one of the jazzy remixes on the house track, I discovered the jazz. From that moment my musical preferences started to revolve around all types of music with a hint of jazz: jazz-hop, broken beats, jazz fusion, bebop, jazztronica.
In 2015 i created couple of radio podcasts, speaking about young music producers and playing jazz-inspired music and later i became a DJ with the idea to transmit all the music I liked, as a dancer and as a listener: everything between jazz that grooves me in the dancing room or on the dance floor".
As a DJ she generates her personal vision between jazz, club grooves and electronic sound as a JazzBetween music.
Marina: "The DJ sets that I like to play now are always an invisible musical bridge between the past and the future of jazz music with warm feeling of live sound".
In 2016 she started to organise the first JazzBetween events in Moscow, that ended up exporting to Saint-Petersburg, Tokyo and Bratislava and finally had been based in Barcelona as one of the most avant-garde Jazz not Jazz sessions.
Her interest lies in the renewal of the relation between dance and music, clearly seen in Jazzbetween and her inexplicable way to generate a space that can be co-inhabited by artists who came from Jazz and Not Jazz. This radical binomial is the place where Marina Pravkina finds the tools to build the "Gray Scale" that one can see in her art.
