Its been over half a year since Ellen Alliens album >Dust< first saw the light of night. And since then it has been impossible to get away from the strangely glittering fairy dust that graced the albums cover. On your skin. your clothes. in your nose. and above all. in your ears. >Dust< truly left its mark. Anyone that had anything to do with techno in 2010 couldnt avoid experiencing Ellens most personal and without a doubt most mature reflection of her own being. a sparkling gem full of pop appeal and unexpected twists and turns. And why would they want to? It unites many facets into one - although the album. which was produced together with Tobias Freund (whose projects include >tobias.<. >Pink Elln<. and >Sieg Über Die Sonne<). is extremely diverse and wide-ranging. it is also a coherent impression of a singular personality...

It's been over half a year since Ellen Allien's album "Dust" first saw the light of night. And since then it has been impossible to get away from the strangely glittering fairy dust that graced the album's cover. On your skin, your clothes, in your nose, and above all, in your ears. "Dust" truly left its mark. Anyone that had anything to do with techno in 2010 couldn't avoid experiencing Ellen's most personal and without a doubt most mature reflection of her own being, a sparkling gem full of pop appeal and unexpected twists and turns. And why would they want to? It unites many facets into one - although the album, which was produced together with Tobias Freund (whose projects include "tobias.", "Pink Elln", and "Sieg Über Die Sonne"), is extremely diverse and wide-ranging, it is also a coherent impression of a singular personality. A snapshot of an artist who was one of the first to begin hammering Berliner Techno into stone, and since then has worked tirelessly at molding and shaping its perfect form. So it really comes as no surprise that these remixes are just as impressive as Ellen's original LP thanks to the multiple perspectives they provide. Placing the tracks in different (yet well-selected) hands was supposed to be a simple experiment, but what was originally intended to only be released digitally ended up being so impressive that a decision was made to turn it into the tactile experience of a silver disc. The result is thirteen adaptations of the material on "Dust" which transition between multiple varieties of House, Techno, Disco, and Ambient as if the idea of different categories never existed. Here, a rigid structure takes a backseat to creative freedom. The artists selected for this project come from completely different stylistic camps, and can without a doubt be referred to as key players in today's club sound. The innovators. The musicians' musicians. The secret stars. This compilation offers a total of thirteen tracks which each present a different, individual idea of what the word remix means. The storied art of taking pieces of something already available and creating something new. And the result is definitely quite impressive. The remixes which stand out the most are probably the incredible cover of "Flashy Flashy" by Nicolas Jaar, this season's soul house brother, the remix of "Should We Go Home" by John Roberts (debut album entitled "Glass Eights", released by Dial, 2010), as well as the remix of Ellen's pop song "You" by Munk, from the Munich-based label Gomma
