Ellen Allien Bids 2016 a Farewell

with Her Debut Essential Mix

for BBC Radio 1


On December 10, the world’s most iconic dance music radio show, BBC Radio 1’s “The Essential Mix” invited Berlin’s Ellen Allien to the mixing board, marking her Essential Mix debut! 2016 has been a tremendous year for the DJ, producer, label owner and founder of BPitch Control. From her hometown of Berlin, the world’s mecca for techno music, Ellen has steadily climbed to the global stage. Her debut on the Essential Mix places her alongside many of techno’s greats including Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Dixon and more.

“Inspired by the Berlin winter”, Ellen’s mix gives listeners more than 2 hours of listening, combining classic techno and brand new unreleased material. Fusing heavy tunes from fellow Berlin-native Marcel Dettmann, Detroit’s electro-techno duo Drexciya, and prominent artist Aphex Twin, plus many more, Ellen’s mix is not for the light-hearted. It’s moody, it’s ambient, it’s sexy and it’s trippy. It’s Allien.
