As one of the most iconic artists of her generation, Ellen Allien embodies the core ethos of techno: a visionary who looks to the future for inspiration, carving out her niche and presiding over an empire that has imbued techno, and dance music culture, with her unique DNA. Her latest LP, AurAA, dropped in June 2020 featured a variety of hard-hitting, rave-inspired techno cuts, but all delivered with Ellen’s idiosyncratic sound signature; high-octane beats, and distinct use of vocals with irresistible rhythms and grooves, which create listening and emotional qualities that resonate beyond the dancefloor. Her most recent releases are tracks on compilations by the collectives Gegen Berlin and Serendipity. Before the end of 2021, she’ll release the remixes of one of her favorite bands Lebanon Hanover on BPitch – originally created for her own sets and released by popular demand – a new EP for her label UFO Inc., and a remix for Regal.
