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.
Berlin is the international Mecca of electronic music and wouldn’t be the same without BPitch Control.
From 1997 on, Ellen hold her own parties under the brand "BPitch Control" and caused a positive stir with her futuristic sound and the concomitant visuals that staked a fast reputation in the scene. The catalogue of Ellen Allien productions reflect that the label never fixates over a particular sound for too long: from the minimal grooves of her debut Stadtkind (2001) to the industrial-infected Thrills (2005), via club-orientated breakout Berlinette (2003), her range shines throughs.
Gender (Ellen Allien Remix) underscores the original’s spine-chilling vocals with a rapid, zapping bassline. Additional reverb and chime-like synths are layered onto the track, resulting in a intensely wicked rework.
On this track, Ellen slowly expands unexpectedly melodic beats and breathy vocals in the forefront.
Pure love for this sound!
