Ellen Allien has her sights set on the stars with the launch of her new imprint UFO Inc. that’s paired with the two-track UFO EP.
A veteran artist in the Berlin techno scene, Ellen Allien had already made waves as the founder of BPitch Control along with a string of quality releases. Renowned for her skills both in the studio and behind the decks, she now has her sights set on curating even more underground sounds with the launch of her new imprint UFO Inc. on January 28 this year.
There isn’t a more perfect debut release on the cosmic label than an EP that shares the same theme, and the UFO EP is one you’ll definitely want to listen to. Bringing two solid tracks to the table to kick off the label, both “UFO” and “Körpermaschine” are absolute stompers that will be beaming you up and whisking you off to a galaxy far, far away.
Lifting listeners up to the heavens, “UFO” is a track that has been on heavy rotation in Ellen Allien’s DJ sets since this past summer. Those who tune in are taken on a ride through the cosmos as the track builds and releases tension while incorporating unique synths blended with interconnected rhythmic elements of underground bliss.
On the flipside, “Körpermaschine” is a track which brings forth the raw, rough aesthetic side of UFO Inc. that makes it a solid companion to the title track. Showing off a different style that is overflowing with energy and power, this is a contemporary techno track that highlights the punishing nature that the genre can bring forth.
