[Ellen on her music and DJing]
as a dj i have always tried to connect genres, styles and audiences. i want to feed people new music and capture their interest. i want to fill the room with sound. and i have always been searching for an acceptance of what exists. we all live in the here and now!
and it was that common thread that i wanted to share with the audience. when i dj, body and music become one, they become brainy. to me, music was always the only way to soar through epic parallel worlds, to relax, to experience excess, to find myself.
music is both my motor and my outlet.
as a producer, music is a playback of my emotions and moods. i tease them out of me with alternating technical devices. music becomes a chronicle, each album is a work from a period of my life, which grounds me after the stress of dj-jetting. albums are like diaries. with my first album “stadtkind” i wanted to express my close relationship with the city i live in. it was like an explosion. “stadtkind” is my homage to berlin. the testing, work and experimentation with the structures and the sound spectrum of electronic music then became more and more crucial for me. i used my various compilations and remixes to beam myself into the musical cosmos. with my next album “berlinette” i processed what i had experienced after the release of “stadtkind”. it was like a flash of lightning, i was everywhere and everyone around me was euphoric and supportive. “berlinette” illustrates all that and it is also my very personal discourse on what is possible in the world of pop music and abstract sounds. then i released my third album “thrills”. it moves back and forth between constant excitement and playing the arp 2600 and other analogue instruments.
in 2006 apparat and i decided to do an album together. we went into appart's studio and had a great time - looking over the roof tops of berlin in winter, playing around on different instruments and synths, trying things out. "orchestra of bubbles" is a really nice electronica album with parts both of my and apparat's style. during summer 2006 we performed our live sets all over the world, played big festivals and were sweating like crazy each time. it was a challenge and an inspiration for both of us.
when i was asked to represent berlin for a dvd for time out i was happy to accept. it's a really cool thing for people who don't know this great city and want to know about it. i show my favorite places and also did a mix that goes along on cd.
fabric has always been my favorite club and i was proud to be asked to do an exclusive mix for them, which has been released in may 2007. beside my different remix projects (f.i. thom yorke, beck, troy pierce, ect.) that was something i really enjoyed doing in my studio.
whenever i have time i do my own fashion. in summer 2007 i already launched my third collection. i like doing fashion design - i like to draw and the choose fabrics. i only do very few pieces, it's all very exclusive and it's more my hobby than a business. music is still my main interest - my love and my life. and it's interesting to see how different equipment and software changes the styles of music all the time.
changing studio equipment keeps the productions flowing. techno is still what i’m about. it’s minimal, reduced, deep and rough at the same time. i would say that techno and i have developed together.
