In Portuguese, “saudade” is a profound emotional state often described as the love that remains after someone hasgone. It’s this feeling that Chilean producer Valentina Montalvo Alé a.k.a. Valesuchi, taps into with her evocative productions. Her dark, smoky dancefloor detonators brim with love, desire, machines and danger, and they yearn for a time when club music was raw and indebted to the rhythm. She describes one of her tunes as what a “heartbroken Dam-Funk driving into a sunset” might sound like, while others owe more to Belgian EBM and Omar-S’s deep Detroit house but with rawer sampled atmospheres. After years of being booked at psych rock clubs, she’s found an affinity with Matias Aguayo’s Cómeme camp, who share Valesuchi’s vision of a pan-tropical, proto-disco future. Outside of DJing and music-making, Valesuchi has worked in film post production, concerts production and directing videos. Since 2014, year in which she was part of the Red Bull Music Academy held in Tokyo, she's been playing in many important stages such as Sónar Festival 2015 in their Barcelona, São Paulo and Santiago editions, Primavera Fauna Festival, Dekmantel São Paulo, Boiler Room and as an active member of Santiago, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro’s underground electronic scenes.
At 18 years old Alina is a rarity in the modern dance music scene. She completed her DJ course in Mixlabs music academy at 15. With a gifted ear for underground sounds she draws influence from house legends such as Kerri Chandler, Frankie Knuckles to the more modern Terrance Parker and Jimpster. Always eager to push her sonic boundaries and evolve her sound, she has also opened for artists such as Stellar Om source, Kini Rao, Unnayana, Stalvart and more. Her sets ooze that groovy house vibe. Always pushing her sonic boundaries further, Alina is constantly evolving her sound and has played at some of the best venues in Bangalore such as Pebbles, Alt Bar, Puma Club, Kitty KO, Bluefrog(Bangalore), Tao Terraces and regular residency in Soul Sante.
