If you're a savvy net user, then you'll know that Ellen Allien's seventh full-length tudio album, Dust, leaked late last month, a couple weeks prior to yesterday's official release date. If you're an upstanding citizen, however, you bought the Berlin musician/producer's release in all sorts of legal fashion. Totally worth your bucks and pennies...seriously.
Between her work as a DJ, fashion designer, label head at BPitch Control and all around beholder of all that is rad, Ellen Allien gets a nod where nods are due...and that's in her production work. Dust sees Allien at her finest, joining up with fellow Berliner Tobias Freund to create an album that is self-described as "having a warm immediacy compared with her previous efforts".
Allien's constructed a cut'n'paste clip of first song, Our Utopie, and heads up NYCers. Ellen hits Santos Party House next Saturday May 29. We make demands, not requests when it comes to this event. So, you know, um....GO. Tickets here.
