Set to release her highly personal LP “Valor” on Damian Lazarus’ esteemed Crosstown Rebels imprint, Chile’s classicaly trained Dinky provides the latest instalment of our mixtape series.
Esteemed for her decade long DJ residency at Berlin’s infamous Panorama Bar and past productions on labels such as Cocoon, Visionquest and Crosstown Rebels, Dinky’s latest offering comes at a point in her life where the future was uncertain to say the least. As she describes it:
“This album is a personal journey through motherhood and pregnancy as an artist. My life took an 180 degree turn after my first son was born in 2014 I was labelled a high risk, and with the new pregnancy again in 2015 with my younger boy I was ordered to stay in bed for more than 3 months. Valor in Spanish means “courage” but it’s also the first letters of both my sons Valentin and Orlando combined,”
So, without further adieu, let Dinky take you through her world through her music.
“Valor” is available 30 September on Crosstown Rebels
