Ellen Allien - Remix Collection
|CD:||out of stock|
Legendary Berlin DJ, label owner and producer Ellen Allien requires little introduction. Fresh on the heels of her critically acclaimed 2003 release Berlinette, Allien drops her first North American full-length, Remix Collection. A veritable who's who of contemporary electro and minimal techno, Remix Collection gathers together Allien's interpretations of Goldenboy with Miss Kittin, Gold Chains, Barbara Morgenstern, Sascha Funke and Neulander amongst eleven outstanding tracks.
Ellen Allien's artistic development is largely defined by one circumstance: her engagement with "music of the future," i.e. techno and the historical after-effects of the year 1989. Allien witnessed the changes created by the end of the Cold War and Germany's reunification, particularly the impact that it had on the culture and geography of her newly expanded hometown of Berlin. Her music remains indelibly marked by this experience.
Ellen Allien's interest in dance music began during an extended stay in London at the height of the acid house phenomenon. Shortly after returning home, she began DJ'ing. By 1993 Allien was holding down nights at Fischlabor, Tresor and a number of other legendary Berlin venues. Throughout the remainder of the '90s, Allien hosted programs on Berlin's Kiss FM, operated a label called Braincandy, and threw a number of parties called BPitch Control after which her label was named.
Remix Collection will be supported by a two week North American DJ tour by Allien beginning in the second week of May in San Francisco. See the live news page for full details.
