Alejandra Iglesias's latest LP is out on September 30th.
The Berlin-based producer's sixth LP, originally named Casa, has been retitled Valor, which translates to "courage" in Spanish. "It's also the first letters of both my sons, Valentin and Orlando, combined," says Dinky, who adds: "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 three months. My husband built a studio for me in the corner of our bedroom, he took care of everything and I just tried to stay as quiet as possible. Every little pain or movement I dreaded losing my son."
Listen to a seven-minute album minimix.
