Released on Damian Lazarus highly acclaimed Crosstown Rebels imprint ‘Valor’ tells a deeply personal narrative for Chilean born and Berlin based producer / DJ Dinky, her sixth album acts as a pinnacle to her steadfast and illustrious career and brought on a momentous change to her personal journey.
Esteemed for her work on labels such as Cocoon, Ostgut Ton ,Traum, Wagon Repair, Horizontal and Visionquest, and DJ residency at Berlin’s infamous Panorama Bar for over a decade, Dinky AKA Alejandra Iglesias is a trained classical guitarist, singer and keyboard player. Her voice is an anchor to ‘Valor’, it’s crisp definition loaded with intensity.
Tracks such as the driving single ‘Casa’ called out by US giants NPR for its “gorgeously layered vocals” and the fragile layers of guitar and synths on cuts like ‘Milk’ make bold unions between sublime house and techno electronics and Dinky’s live instrumentation.
