Ellen Alien - Alientronic (2xLP)
Double LP version. From beyond our universe, the Alientronicinvasion arrives on Planet Earth. One of the great ambassadors of Berlin techno, Ellen Allien presents her brand new album Alientronic. This is a body of work rooted in the city where it was recorded, Ellen's home and the place where she discovered techno sparking a love affair which will burn for infinity. Alientronic was recorded during the cold winter months in Berlin at the end of 2018, a time when creativity hits a peak in the city. Sub-zero temperatures and dark nights keep the artists locked away indoors, finding time and space to journey inwards and tap into the deepest recesses of their creative energy. Alientronic represents an artist who is brimming with ideas, years of experience breathe life into Ellen's work -- it's refined, yet liberated, informed by the past but very much looking to the future. Ellen disseminates classic techno and acid tropes through her visionary lens, vocals are looped and warped, tough beats slam down as stirring pads coax you into an emotive realm and you're privy to a spellbinding other world full of mysterious exotic allure. Is it a hallucination or are the electro-terrestrials already here among us?
