Sneak Preview Ellen Allien’s New Album LISm

Ellen Allien

Berlin-based DJ and producer Ellen Allien is one of the most prominent women in techno and experimental electronic music. She has built her own career while nurturing those of other artists such as Apparat, Modeselektor, and Seth Troxler, who have all worked with her own 14-year-old label BPitch Control. Allien has been kind enough to provide an early listen to new album LISm before its official release date.
