Dinky was born Alejandra Del Pilar Iglesias Rivera and named Dinky by her sister at birth. As a child she studied Ballet and the Suzuki method (piano). Since very early age she showed a natural musical and artistic talent. Born and raised in Santiago to a musical family ,she is a leading member of Chile’s second generation of electronic-music greats. It was in New York, where she had moved in the mid ’90s to join the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance, that Dinky’s music career began to take off, as she immersed herself in the city’s vital underground scene of the day.
In her early twenties she turned out her first productions; within a couple of years She had released a spate of records in labels as Sonic Groove, Traum and Carpark, ranging from ambient, minimal house, techno to downcast new disco and electronic pop. In 2003, she moved to Berlin, a city that had captured her imagination nine years earlier during the heyday of E-Werk and Tresor. It was a good move: by 2005 she would release the massive “Acid In My Fridge” for Sven Väth’s Cocoon imprint; the record became a massive hit. Dinky has gone on to become a regular fixture across the continental scene, playing regularly in the most important clubs, like DC10, Fabric, Amnesia or Cocoon Club, while in Berlin she holds the honor of a Panorama Bar residency.
Dinky never limits herself to one style. She has released four albums, three mix CDs and dozens of singles. Her last album entiteld “Valor” for Crosstown Rebels has been released just two months ago.
