Experimental techno producer Miss Dinky (Alejandra Iglesias) was born in Chile, but she moved to New York in the mid-'90s to continue her studies in dance. Shortly after arriving in the States, she became further enamored with dance music and eventually began DJing in the N.Y.C. club scene. (Dinky had long since become a techno fan and occasional DJ, having caught many a German act while still residing in Chile; also, an inspirational trip to Berlin prior to her move to the States proved to be a significant event.) She held a residency at the Flamingo East and spearheaded the Angels on Vinyl, a female DJ triumvirate based in New York City. Influenced by a wide number of sources, from Basic Channel and Christian Vogel to Carl Craig and Derrick May, Dinky's productions range from ambient home-listening to melodic dancefloor fodder. 2001 saw a number of releases from the producer, including a number of ambient 12"s for Cologne's Traum label and another single for New York's Carpark. A full-length compilation, Melodias Venenosas, was also released by Traum during the year.
