Wherever you find Ellen Allien, you find movement. Born in Berlin, living and working in Berlin and Ibiza, one of the planet’s most dynamic party scenes, her artistic home stands for one thing above all: freedom, in every aspect. DJ, musician, label manager, t-shirt designer and creative all-rounder – Ellen Allien has carved out her own space in all these roles, creating a unique universe.
Since 1999 she has managed the label BPitch Control in Berlin, as well as the t-shirt range ellen allien. As a DJ she rocks clubs and festivals all around the world. She is a resident at DC10/ Ibiza, Nitsa/ Barcelona and Robert Johnson/ Offenbach as well as at major festivals such as Melt/ Germany and Name/ France and tours worldwide with BPitch Control events. Her productions have even been performed at temples of modern art such as the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
She is constantly exploring new aural worlds, most recently on her soundtrack album “LISm” (2013), her works “Dust” (2010) and “Sool” (2008) or in collaboration with Apparat in 2006 on “Orchestra Of Bubbles”, the EP and Vinyl only edits “Free Nation” (2014) with Thomas Muller or like the recent EP and Vinyl “Freak” (2014), followed by a remix EP with edits by Radio Slave, Detroit legend AUX88, EJECA and LA Williams (2015) or the 12″ like “GO” (2007), “Pump” (2010) and ” The Kiss” (2011). Most importantly she shares her enthusiasm with others: her creative base and label BPitch Control, her fellow musicians and of course her audience. For a long time now, Ellen Allien has been regarded as a fixed star in the electronic music galaxy. She is an extraordinary creature, a one-of-a-kind artist without whom Berlin’s vibrant electronic club landscape wouldn’t be the same. Fortunately someone thought of a suitably extraterrestrial name for her right at the start of her career: Allien. No name will ever suit her better.
