Ellen Allien actually owns the label b-pitch records in germany, i think. i might be wrong.
this album is very pleasing, if you like the more intellectual side of chill-out / electro music. if you haven't heard much electronica, i guess this might seem like dance music. but it's more like IDM--the only way it will ever get to the dance floor is by DJs who actually mix live. if it seems cold and harsh, then check out first two lali puna albums, park avenue music, four tet, boards of canada, etc. for more melodic IDM. if you like it harsh, check out the band "smash.tv" from somewhere in germany. it's worth it to track it down. as stated in other reviews, there are some similarities between miss kitten and felix da housecat, but those artists are very cliched and tongue-in-cheek, whereas ellen allien is more straight-forward IDM like some of the more listenable aphex twin.
