ellen allien

Growing a global reputation as a DJ and producer in the mid 1990’s, Ellen Allien founded her label BPitch in 1999, creating a hub of techno, house and diverse electronic music. With over 340 releases it is safe to say that BPitch is here to stay. Never one to look backwards, Ellen Allien’s constant push forward led to the recent conception of her new record label, named UFO Inc. in 2018. The platform is an incubator for rough, raw and hypnotic techno - an uncompromising stance. Her eternally creative mind has also led to the production of eight solo albums and an extensive back catalogue of singles, EPs and remix work.

As a DJ, Ellen Allien has enormous skill and resource. A techno lover from the start, it is her musical core, the running theme through her varied sets. Ellen comfortably blends and weaves a hypnotic pattern of her style of techno, acid and abstract electro slammers. Absorbing the space and the energy of the dancers, she creates something mysterious and progressive for the there and then. Extraterrestrial Allien Dance is taking place.

Ellen Allien holds residencies in the clubs Circoloco at DC10, Ibiza, Nitsa at Barcelona, and you frequently find her performing infamous festivals such as Germany’s Melt! or NAME in France, to mention a few. Ellen also runs her own bi-monthly ‘We Are Not Alone’ raves in her beloved hometown Berlin, and hosting in-store record shop gigs under the name Vinylism all over the world. All these projects keeps her not only busy, but focused, creative and inspired.
