Ellen Allien Biography

Like a lot of dance music producers, Berlin's Ellen Allien has had her
hands in just about every aspect of her field. Allien's immersion into
dance music began during an extended stay in London, at the height of the
acid house phenomenon. Shortly after returning home she got into DJing, and
by 1993 she had spun at Fischlabor, Tresor, and a number of other
significant clubs. Throughout the remainder of the '90s, she hosted
programs on Berlin's Kiss FM, worked at the Delirium record shop, operated
a label called Braincandy, and threw a number of parties called BPitch
Control, which led to her label of the same name. She became a noted
producer and issued a series of full-lengths - Stadtkind (2001), Berlinette
(2003), Thrills (2005) and together with Apparat Orchestra of Bubbles
(2006).
