FULL ARTIST BIOS
DINKY - COCOON/WAGON REPAIR – DJ – CL/DE
Don’t let the name fool you: Dinky is a powerhouse. Inheritor of the diminutive nickname before she was even born, Alejandra Iglesias has grown her stature the old-fashioned way, with focus and determination and, of course, killer DJ skills and a catalog filled with classic, game- changing tracks. Active since the mid ’90s, the international traveler has seen scene after scene try to claim her as their own, but she’s never stayed in one place, musically speaking, long enough to get mired in yesterday’s ideas. Her restlessness is our gain.
Born and raised in Santiago, Dinky is a leading member of Chile’s second generation of electronic-music greats. Like so many of her artistic compatriots, her music reflects both her roots and the experiences of a highly peripatetic lifestyle. Caught up in the musical revolution started by the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Dandy Jack and Atom Heart in the early ’90s, she taught herself to mix records and was soon appearing at desert raves. 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 career began to take off, as she immersed herself in the city’s vital underground scene of the day and became a regular behind the decks. In 2000, just 23 years old and armed with only an MPC 2000, she turned out her first productions; within a couple of years she had released a spate of records, ranging from trim, nuanced minimal techno to downcast electro-pop, on Cologne’s Traum Schallplatten as well as New York’s Sonic Groove and Carpark labels.
In 2003, forced by U.S. immigration laws to leave the country, Dinky lit out for 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, and the following year she landed a residency at Väth’s infamous Cocoon parties at Ibiza’s Amnesia. Both DJing and playing live, Dinky has gone on to become a regular fixture across the continental scene—from Ibiza’s Circo Loco to top-draw festivals like Sonar, 10 Days Off and Sonne Mond Sterne—while in Berlin she currently holds the honor of a Panorama Bar residency.
FAIRMONT AKA JAKE FAIRLEY – BORDER COMMUNITY/TRAUM – CA/DE – LIVE PA
Canadian producer Jake Fairley aka Fairmont has become a household name in the electronic music scene since he began his career in 2000. He is most famous for his international hit “Gazebo” and the followup album “Coloured in Memory” both on James Holden’s Border Community label. Prior to this, he released several well-received singles and 3 albums on imprints such as Traum, Kompakt, and Dumb-Unit. His tracks have been featured on mix-CD’s from artists as varied as Andrew Weatherall, to Miss Kitten, to The Petshop Boys. His analogue based live-sets have been performed at clubs around the world from Panorama Bar (Berlin) to Fabric (London) and Maniac Love (Tokyo).
2010 is turning out to be a busy year for this always evolving artist. In January he founded the Beachcoma label with friends Metope and Pan/Tone. So far Jake has already made 2 contributions to their catalogue with the “Evaporator EP” and more recently, “Gremlins.” In July the much anticipated return of his Fairmont project was released on Areal Records in the form of “All Dreams Are Nightmares.” This monster techno anthem had already been the highlight of his live acts for some months and is now destined to become one of his classics. Most exciting of all is that on October 4th his “3 Cities EP” will be released on Cologne’s Traum imprint. 3 Cities takes his sound in a darker and more psychedelic direction with throbbing arpeggios, haunting vocals and gothic undertones. If you imagine Fairmont being mixed with hints of Mathew Jonson, Gavin Russom and Spacemen 3 you are starting to get the picture.
