Ellen Allien, Berlin's queen of the rave scene, is releasing her newest, most personal record, Dust, on May 18 via her own BPitch Control label. As an integral member and standard-bearer of German techno culture, Ellen has constantly changed up her approaches to construct each new record. Every step forward is a departure from past practices, and Dust is no different -- A warm immediacy takes center stage in place of distanced artistic abstraction on her newest outing. Dust lies between nocturnal excesses and the packed diary of a woman who not only manages one of the world's most illustrious electronic record labels, but also raises a great deal of dust with her work as a fashion designer, a producer and a DJ. Ellen will be bringing her wholly unique aesthetic to the U.S. in May, with three select dates in Chicago, Detroit, and New York City. Don't miss this rare opportunity to witness a true electronic maven and master at work.
Ellen Allien Tour Dates:
Wednesday, May 26 - Chicago, IL @ Smart Bar
Friday, May 28 - Detroit, MI @ Majestic Theater
Saturday, May 29 - Brooklyn, NY @ Santos Party House
