Dinky

Alejandra Iglesias aka Dinky was born in Santiago de Chile Her family named her �Dinky�(which has no meaning in Spanish) before she even saw the light of the world. Thanks to her mother and a very musical family she grew up playing the piano and was exposed to a lot of music. Since an early age she has explored several art forms and for many years trained as a professional dancer and choreographer. She danced for Peter Gabriels� concert when she was only 16 and always felt comfortable on stage. As a teenager, Dinky grew up listening to bands like Cocteau Twins, DepecheMode, Prince and The Cramps as well as classical and contemporary composers like Brian Eno and Eric Satie. She always found herself attracted to dissonance in music composition and today many of her pieces are based on that. In the mid nineties she was introduced to electronic music, thanks to her sister who was living in Berlin. Artists like Plastikman, Aphex Twin and Carl Craig where the first ones to fill her record collection. It was round 1994 in Santiago that Dinky met Ricardo Villalobos, Dandy Jack, Atom heart, Luciano and other musicians that where related to Chile. Listening to them she got deeply fascinated by this movement and decided to do something about it. She was only a teenager when she first learned how to mix records but nevertheless, was soon being exposed to big crowds in Chile sharing line ups with the musicians mentioned above. Her first visit to Berlin in 1994 gave her the chance to experience clubs like E werk and Tresor and also to listen to great djs like Jeff Mills, Hell and Stacey Pullen. This gave her great inspiration from the start. In the late nineties, Dinky moved from Santiago to Manhattan to join the Martha Graham School of Contemporary dance. As well as being involved in the Dance scene she also got into the NY Club scene, discovering American house and Detroit techno, polishing her DJing and making a name in the underground scene. She was a regular at the famous Body and Soul house parties as well as Nasa techno raves and Twilo. In 1996 Dinky made her first visit to a recording studio where she composed a track together with her friend Jorge Gonzales, a Chilean pop star with whom she is still working now. A couple of years after that, she decided to write her own music. Whilst only 23 and with just an MPC 2000 she composed her first tracks and soon after was signed to the label Traum Schaallplatten from Cologne for whom she recorded many singles and an album. Her music, minimalist and hypnotic received a warm welcome from the German press, reaching charts of De Bug and Groove.
