Ellen Allien - Fabric 34 Bpitch Control boss Ellen Allien has always managed to give techno a melodic, joyful and innocent feel. Be it fragmented and delicate vocals on her album ‘Berlinette’, or the fusion of rough beats and Apparat's strings on last year's awesome ‘Orchestra of Bubbles’, she has a gift for making music that not only rocks but has a unique warmness to it. Thankfully, she's managed to maintain the same aural aesthetic on this excellent mix for Fabric, and has produced one of the best in the series
By 2007 Berlin native Ellen Allien was one of the more prominent movers and shakers on the international electronica scene. Splitting her time between recordings, DJ-ing, and running a label and party headquarters called BPitch Control, Allien was an endless fountain of energy and creative ideas. FABRIC 34 (2007) provides further evidence of Allien's mastery of mixing and production
I can remember every record being played by myself in a club," she tells us. When she hears them again, the moments come rushing back. But Fabric 34 also exercises memory in a less Proustian, more concrete way: Following a party in her flat, Allien mixed the entire set on vinyl, by hand. This enriched idea of music brings an alluring balance of wistfulness and energy to all of Allien's work. From the get-go, Fabric 34 peers longingly backward. After jumping off with a chirpy, murky number, she summons the golden days through Larry Heard's acid classic "The Sun Can't Compare", which rides Mr. White's diva crooning, over vintage 808's and handclaps, far into house territory. Anyone who can't handle the manic-depressive flitting might exit here.

Her first artist album 'Stadtkind' ('City Child') was a tender journey into the realms of self-exploration, and her second, 'Berlinette,' gracefully experimented with digital recording, vocals and instrumentation. Thrills,' arguably one of her most distinctive and influential albums to date, was most recently followed by her wondrous collaboration with Shitkatapult's Apparat (Sascha Ring), 'Orchestra Of Bubbles. As with everything else she touches, on Fabric 34, Ellen Allien has imaginatively created a work of art that is both timely and timeless. Whereas every record is a complete experience in itself, this seductive mix as a whole shines bright with a powerful synergy. Moving and evocative, Ellen Allien has attributed human elements to the infallibly machine-like; it's almost possible to hear poetry in wordless music as each instrument sings a heart-pulling love song to the beat.
Ellen Allien: Fabric 34. The stakes are high when recording a Fabric mix, so it’s probably pretty easy to get sucked down a rabbit hole, tweaking every segue and build to within an inch of its life. You probably never thought you’d shake a leg to Thom Yorke’s Harrowdown Hill, but you were wrong.
