One of the emerging bright lights of New York's club scene, Dahlia Lachs aka Modesty has begun to earn a reputation far beyond that which her moniker would allow.
Skillfully blending deep grooves with strong rhythms and a multitude of breaks, stutters, and effects, Modesty delivers sets that reflect kindly on her early Latin and disco influences but consistently finds ways to interpret, re-invent or advance these sounds in new directions with often surprising and unexpected results.
Since walking away from a career in fashion to pursue her musical interests, Lachs has continued to prove over and over again, her acumen and skill behind the decks performing regularly at underground events in Los Angeles, New York and Denver and earning coveted opening slots for internationally recognized producers such as Alex Under, Miss Fitz, Mikael Stavostrand, Ryan Crosson and Lee Curtiss, to name but a few. She has also delivered sets at events by internationally respected promotional outfits such as Droid Behaviour, Resolute NY and Detroit Underground, performing at the latter’s annual afterparty during Movement: Detroit’s Electronic Music Festival.
Modesty continues to hone her craft as a DJ performing as often as possible both at home and with an eye toward gigs abroad, and while admittedly “dabbling in some production”, unlike many other DJ/Producers she continues to explore the possibilities involved in what some might call a lost art, that of mixing records, pure and simple.
