Ellen Allien on BPitch Control, Her New LP, and Women in EDM

If it's true that the electronic dance music industry is male dominated, with women facing unfair challenges, then aspiring female artists couldn't choose a greater role model than Ellen Allien.

As a DJ-producer, Allien has been at the forefront of the Berlin techno scene pretty much since the wall came down. And as head of the internationally renowned BPitch Control label, she has also emerged as one of the foremost tastemakers on the global techno scene.

Allien's talents extend beyond just music, however. She is a full-blown renaissance woman with sidelines in fashion, photography, design, and even the performing arts.
