  • Ellen Allien returns with Dust image
  • BPitch controller Ellen Allien has completed work on her fifth solo full-length album, Dust. The DJ/producer has entered into the studio this time around with Tobias Freund, following previous collaborations with AGF, Apparat and Holger Zilske. The result, as Allien tells it, is a warmer and more immediate album than 2008's Sool. And in listening to previews from the album it certainly seems that way. The beats are upfront, the melodies easily discernible, Allien's voice loud and clear. But it's not all beeps and bleeps: Clarinet finds its way onto "My Tree" and a guitar loop guides "You." Like much of her work, Dust seems pitched halfway between the living room and the dance floor. Tracklist 01. Our Utopie 02. Flashy Flashy 03. My Tree 04. Sun The Rain 05. Should We Go Home 06. Ever 07. You 08. Dream 09. Huibuh 10. Schlumi BPitch Control will release Dust on May 17, 2010.
