About Ellen Allien

A widely respected DJ and producer as well as an entrepreneur and fashionista, Ellen Allien makes experimental techno filled with style and sensuality in addition to running the celebrated BPitch Control label. Although highly active as a DJ and producer of minimal acid techno tracks since the early '90s, she made her breakthrough with the full-lengths 2003's Berlinette and 2005's Thrills, which blended glitchy production tricks with futuristic electro-pop. While 2008's Sool and 2013's LISm contained some of Allien's most abstract work, 2017's Nost brought back the club-focused energy of her singles. Aside from her original productions, she has released an armload of mix CDs, including 2002's Weiss.Mix and 2007's Fabric 34, and has held DJ residencies at prestigious clubs and events such as Tresor (Berlin) and Circoloco (Ibiza). Following her 2020 full-length Auraa, she curated the extensive We Are Not Alone compilation series.
