Ellen Allien the DJ, musician and label manager who specializes in electronic music has announced fall tour dates. Described as a visionary who looks to the future for inspiration, this creative musician has traveled the globe as a DJ playing at every major club on the circuit and festivals from Europe to South America. Allien has created various solo albums and has an extensive back catalog of singles, EPs and remix work.
Allien recently released Allientronic, a brooding techno album off her own BPitch Control record label. This is the Berlin techno artist’s tenth album release over a span of 18 years which began with the release of her 2001 album Stadtkind. In a press release from earlier this year, the conditions in making the album were such, “The LP was recorded during the cold winter months in Berlin at the end of 2018, a time when creativity hits a peak in the city. Sub-zero temperatures and dark nights keep the artists locked away indoors, finding time and space to journey inwards and tap into the deepest recesses of their creative energy.”
Allien recently released a new music video for “Free Society,” off of her latest album Alientronic that was released this past May. She released her new EP, Alientronic Rmxs 2 on September 27 which features reinterpretations of album tracks by Alien Rain, Shlømo, Hector Oaks and Fjaak. Allien holds residencies at Circoloco at DC10 (Ibiza) and Nitsa (Barcelona) with regular bookings at clubs: Fabric (London), Shelter (Amsterdam), The Block (Tel Aviv) and Mondo (Madrid). She also runs her own bi-monthly ‘We Are Not Alone’ raves at Griessmühle in her hometown Berlin. She has channeled her vibrant energy at festivals, including Exit (Serbia), Off Week Sonar (Spain), Melt! (Germany), Kappa Futur Festival (Italy) and more.
In her role as head of BPitch Control, and new label UFO Inc., Allien seeks out and nurtures new talent. She also worked on remixes for seminal labels like Warp and Mute over the last year. Ellen’s leadership at BPitch Control, has provided a standing as one of the most important platforms for underground electronica.
