Ellen Allien, born Ellen Fraatz, is a German electronic musician, music producer and founder of BPitch Control music label. She lives in Berlinmarker, Germanymarker. She sings in both German and English. She has said that one of the main inspirations for her music is the culture of reunified Berlin; her album Stadtkind was dedicated to the city. Her music tends to be difficult to classify stylistically and is best described as a distinctive blend of IDM and electro music, which is dance-floor oriented, yet at the same time has noticeable experimental elements.

History

Allien lived in London for one year, in 1989, where she first came into contact with electronic music. When she later returned to Berlin, electronic music had become increasingly popular in Germany. In 1992, she became resident DJ in the Bunker, Tresormarker and in E-Werk. She started her own show on the Berlin radio station Kiss-FM and created her own record label, calling them both "Braincandy". Due to discrepancies with disk sales, she gave Braincandy up in 1997 and instead, organized parties with the name, "B Pitch". Allien created the label "BPitch Control in 1999. The label's releases from Sascha Funke and Tok Tok were particularly successful. Allien released her first album, Stadtkind ("city child"), in 2001, and Berlinette with Apparat, in 2003. After releasing Thrills, Allien created a BPitch sub-label for minimal tech and minimal house, called "Memo Musik", in 2005.

Allien made a brief appearance in the 2009 electronic music documentary, Speaking In Code.
