Every DJ has an artist who inspires them to do what they do and for me that artist is Ellen Allien. The Berlin based queen of techno has been on the scene since the early 90s and there is not one person in the techno scene that doesn’t know her name. Ellen’s music spoke to me as a young boy growing up in a city where techno wasn’t popular and I just happened to stumble onto her by accident at the time. She became the driving force behind the beginning stages of my passion for underground electronic music.
This week I decided to share one of the latest tracks from Ellen Allien’s latest album Nost that just came out last Friday. The nine-track album takes us through a journey of the world of Ellen with a nice acid flair, a direction that she has been going in for the past couple of years. The track I chose “Physical” takes the listener on a journey through the mind of an alien with Ellen’s own vocal adding the finishing touch, this brings it all together with Ellen’s signature stamp all over it.
