Chilean born and Berlin based Dinky has forged a solid and illustrious career over the past decade. ‘Casa’ announces her new album set for release on Damian Lazarus’s Crosstown Rebels this Autumn, with remixes from Axel Boman and Satori.
A trained classical guitarist, singer and keyboard player that has held a DJ residency at Berlin’s infamous Panorama Bar since 2004, Dinky’s sixth album, also titled ‘Casa’ will be the first since the birth of her two children.’
Dinky’s delicate vocal on ‘Casa’ is both up-tempo and spacious, with infusions of acid, leftfield and electronica in its veins. Axel Boman delivers a stunning, emotive and epic nine and a half minute dub version, overlaid with spoken word samples referring to lost experiences. The Swedish born producer is much-lauded for his releases on DJ Koze’s Pampa, Permanent Vacation and his own imprint, Studio Barnhus, formed with Kornel Kovacs and Petter of Border Community. While the hedonistic take from Satori takes ‘Casa’ up beyond the horizon. A future Crosstown Rebels artist, Satori has released on 8Bit, Under Your Skin and Bla Bla records.
‘Casa’ sees a return to form for Dinky and a welcome return to the Crosstown imprint, after previously releasing a single and a mix album for the pioneering label.
