The concept-driven queen of mnml — the bastard genre of Detroit techno, European microhouse, New York's avant-garde, and oven-baked tranquilizers — Berlin's Ellen Allien came up in the warehouse party scene. Now with 15 years as a DJ and latest album Sool to her credit, Allien can spend equal time exploring dazed recesses as arterial immediacy. In contrast, her mischievous countrymen and co-headliners Modeselektor have embraced the gargling riddims of fidget-guided beats and electro-furrowed bass, irrigated by sprouting melodies.
