ADVENT 2016 #07 – ALINKA
For anyone who follows us here at Lipstick Disco will be more than familiar with todays advent Alinka, we’re a big fan of her work and 2016 has been a phenomenal year for one of Chicago’s finest female exports. A relocation from Chicago to Berlin at the end of 2015 was an incredible move, shortly followed by a debut set at Panorama Bar and further sets there this year. 2016 saw a guest mix for her on Heidi’s radio 1 show, and provide a Mix for DJ Mag’s weekly podcast, both going bk 2 bk with her production and ‘Twirl’ label partner Shaun J. Wright. A string of incredibly high quality releases on Twirl, has seen her remix and release the likes of Lil Mark, Stereogamous, Spatial Awareness and Ena Lind. Outside of the label she’s also had releases on Crosstown Rebels, Classic Music Company and Lovecrimes, provided remixes for Boy George, Justin Harris, Field Theory and most recently Kiddy Smile, she’s literally churning out the productions and they’re just getting better and better. For todays advent, we’re gonna bring something a lil’ Acid, Alinkas Strasse remix of Lil’ Marks ‘It’s Acid’ on her label Twirl, a release from back in November. Incedently, she recently aquired a kitten called Acid, who you can follow on instragram HERE. Kittens + music = pure joy.
