For electronic music fanatics, Chicago is the true mecca -- the birthplace of house music, the place where disco warped into something even more soulful and serious. Russian DJ and producer Nina Kraviz felt herself drawn to it like a moth to flame.
"Eight years ago, I travelled to Chicago to go directly to the source to gather more Dance Mania Records for my collection," Kraviz tells Billboard Dance. "As a longtime fan of the label and passionate supporter, I met with many of the label crew in Chicago, including Parris [Mitchell]. We went into the studio together during this time to make some recordings."
Her song "Feel My Butterfly" -- the Jamie Jones remix of which is premiering exclusively on Billboard today (Feb. 19) -- is the result of one of those sessions.
