DINKY | Sat Nov 12th

Tenth Planet presents DINKY [3 HOUR SET]
Saturday 12th November, Crawdaddy,Dublin
Doors: 11pm
Adm: €8 

The short….

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. Fast forward to 2011…four albums in…. with releases on her label Horizontal, Cocoon, Ostgut Ton, Visionquest and more. Dinky is a Dj and producer that Tenth is proud to have over. She’ll be playing a three hour set on the night so we hope to have a chance to see some of that Panorama Bar magic…

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-drawer festivals like Sonar, 10 Days Off and Sonne Mond Sterne—while in Berlin she currently holds the honour of a Panorama Bar residency.

The long…

Even if you’ve never caught Dinky live, you can get a good sense for her unique style from her two mix CDs, 2007’s Get Lost 03 (Crosstown Rebels) and 2008’s Dinky Mixes Horizontal (P-Vine). Folding phrases with origami grace, they present interwoven percussive grooves flecked with scraps of melody; they’re lush and dryly funky, jacking and introspective all at once. Dinky’s own productions work in similar ways. Whether working with samples, software, hardware or some combination of all three, she builds compact, complex worlds out of sound, using only the bare essentials. It’s hard to think of another producer who has imbued the principals of minimalism with such soul

Active since the mid ‘90s, Born and raised in Santiago, Dinky is a leading member of Chile’s second generation of electronic-music greats. Caught up in the musical revolution started by the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Dandy Jack and Atom Heart in the early ‘90s. 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. 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.

Swing That

Have you ever seen a superstar DJ? Well this guy has been forging and tweaking the definition for quite some time around Dublin’s club scene. Seany Bee is a multi-diagonal performer on top of his game, who is switching styles like switch blades in his sets, going from the top of disco origins and soulful house down to bass itchy hip hop and 80’s
classics. He’s got pro skills in turning them vinyl’s and doesn’t mind getting on the digital side either. If you are not down with SWING THAT @Chocolate Bar this Saturday October 22nd to check him out, you’ll probably be missing the most exciting sounds you ears have yet to experience.

Also on the warm up we got Jazz Paddy and Karlito Deeganti from YOUR LOCAL VICAR bringing us onto the journey through the sky high funky rhythms into the depths of dub with a dash of hip hop beats and a unique slick sound that has not been heard before by the citizens of our planet.

Amen Brother

Pod Saturdays_
Presents: Amen Brother
Sat October 15th, Chocolate Bar

Run by members of the MN crew, Amen Brother is a down-tempo night focusing on anything from soul, funk, jazz, disco & more. Going strong for three years now, the night offers a different experience than regular club nights, past events have included a series of boat parties on the Thames, a monthly night in the plush surroundings of the Odessa club and appearances at various Irish festivals.

Amen Brother have hosted events with Allez Allez, Maurice Fulton, DJ Food, TDB and a memorable set from Mike Huckaby, who played a rare set composed of Sun Ra classics. The night’s music policy encourages local DJ’s to experiment with their sets to avoid the clichéd mix-by-numbers style plaguing most parties these days. The Amen Brother mix series can be found here…
