POSSESSION PODCAST #180 – ELLEN ALLIEN UFO2021
As one of the most iconic artists of her generation, Ellen Allien embodies the core ethos of techno: a visionary who looks to the future for inspiration, carving out her own niche and presiding over an empire that has imbued techno, and dance music culture, with her unique DNA.
Her latest LP, AurAA, dropped in June 2020 featured a variety of hard-hitting, rave-inspired techno cuts, all delivered with Ellen’s idiosyncratic sound signature; high-octane beats and distinct use of vocals with irresistible rhythms and grooves.
2020 presented an extremely difficult situation for Ellen and the rest of the global electronic music community as clubs and festivals were shut down in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. Unable to tour, she conceived the Balcony Streaming sessions, hosted on her balcony in Berlin. The livestreams allowed her to continue DJing and engaging with her fanbase, while also supporting music from a wide range of artists, new and old.
