Ellen Allien is one of the queens of the scene no doubt. With her label BPitch Control picking up universal respect from within the industry and outside of it too, plus her superb productions and always killer DJ sets, she’s a straight up powerhouse and we’re very happy that she took some time out of her busy schedule just recently to compile this list of her top 5 BPitch Control remixes to celebrate the release of her ‘Freak’ EP containing reworks of ‘Freak The Night’ and ‘Butterfly’ from Radio Slave, Ejeca and Detroit legends, Aux 88. Enjoy!
Dillon – A Matter Of Time (Monokle Remix)
Dillon is my favourite singers and artists from Berlin. Working with her is just a pleasure. After hearing the Russian producer Monokle for the first time, I became a big fan and it was one of my biggest wishes to have him as a remixer for ‘A Matter Of Time’. The result was amazing, the way he reworked this track is an wondrous electronic journey. I love both of their music.

Joy Wellboy – Before The Sunrise (Dixon Remix)
Joy Wellboy are a band from Belgium, now living in Berlin. Their music is something between pop, indie and electronic, combined with amazing lyrics, and they are just two of the coolest characters! Dixon of course is a colleague from Berlin, I’ve known him since the old days. It was a sure thing that he would turn the original into a warm and deep house track. We wanted a remix that would work in clubs but also resonate as a touching song and Dixon made it on point.

Ellen Allien – Freak (Radio Slave Remix)
Radio Slave is one of our favorite DJs! This remix highlights the important sounds, and the arrangement is just elegant, uplifting and trippy.
Moderat – Rusty Nails (TRG Remix)
Dancefloor breakbeat bomb. I played it so many times in my sets, it always works and destroys every dancefloor.

Telefon Tel Aviv – Immolate Yourself (Ben Klock Remix)
Ben Klock, my old friend from Berlin. Famous for his talent to produce trippy tracks and this is one of them.
