Seth Troxler drops the C- bomb on Nina Kraviz

Things aren’t as dandy on the DJ circuit as you may have thought; there seems to be a pair that cannot stand each other. In a recent interview for Thump, Seth Troxler lets all his feelings towards Nina loose.

“One thing I suppose that ended up being kinda big, for some dumb reason, was the whole naked photos thing”, Troxler explains. “They were getting shared online as if I was taking the piss out of that whole Nina-Kraviz-in-the-bathtub shit, but it was so dumb – that photo is from nearly three years ago! I think I should go into this so people can get it right. It all came from an idea during my time at art school, from this designer called Stefan Sagmeister.  When he started his company, he send out this invitation for a party that was two pictures of him naked.  One picture was of him with a really long dick, all blacked out with tape that you could rip off, and it said underneath it “My name is Sagmeister, I just started Sagmeister Inc”. I thought that shit was so gangster.”

“Then, this summer in Ibiza, I opened my stuff from my old apartment in Berlin, and there was his book with that concept. I was like “Oh, fuck, that idea was sick!” It ended up being in the back of my mind for a while so, when that festival interview needed to happen, and I knew we didn’t have that much time, I thought “Well, we need to do the whole thing in ten minutes, so taking my clothes off would be cooler than me just talking about myself.”

Then, things get catty. “I never really thought about the Nina thing so much”, Troxler insists. “We don’t like each other.  She’s kind of a bitch. Like, there’s been occasions where she’s really stressed me out by being such a bitch. One time we were playing together at a festival in France, and I was trying to help her set up the CDJs for her set as I’m still mixing. I asked her to plug the RCA into her CDJ and – I swear to God – she said “I don’t do that type of thing”.  I was like “What the fuck, you can’t plug an RCA into a CDJ? You’re a DJ! I’m trying to help you out here!” Then she was hopping all over my shoulders and shit as I was playing, and I was like,“Yo get the fuck off my shoulder, I’m trying to play and you’re stressing me out”. She was really pissed off at me after that.”

“Then, the third time, I was playing at my own party in Miami. We were outside with a bunch of our peers and, you know, I’m not a dick, so I went to go shake her hand and say hello. She was like, “I don’t need to shake hands with clowns like you”, so I said “You’re a fucking cunt!”

“After that, we just don’t really speak. I mean, who does that? You came to my party, I say hello, and you react like that? Fuck you then. The funny thing is though, everyone’s pretty cool with each other in our scene. Most of us are just trying to hang out and be chill. What’s the point in adding that to the equation?  It is kind of funny now though, because she gets really bothered by my presence…”

Seems like the pair need to put their handbags away and just make up, sounds like nothing more than a bitchy cat fight to me…
