BPitch Control is a German techno record label founded in 1999 in Berlin by DJ and producer Ellen Allien. In 1992 she became resident DJ at the legendary Tresor club in Berlin's Potsdamer Platz. At around the same time, she started her own show on the Berlin radio station Kiss-FM and created her own record label, calling them both Braincandy, before setting Bpitch Control up in 1999.

The label has since launched the careers of popular production outfits, such as Modeselektor and Apparat, and has featured limited edition remixes of alternative musician Beck. It also a favorite label of Thom Yorke's. [Wikipedia]

The techno awesomeness that is Berlin's Ellen Allien combines forces with the electro-glitch techno awesomeness that is Berlin's Modeselektor for one massive (actually small) tour full of German techno awesomeness. The NYC date that was originally scheduled to take place at Studio B has been moved to Highline Ballroom (not Element where it was moved to for a second). All tickets will be honored for the September 4th show. Some videos, all dates (and the poster), below...

don't look so happy in that picture TOME

Seeing as how Radiohead is my favorite band of all-time, it's hard to acknowledge the fact that in this particular picture Thom looks sort of like a cross between an evil twin of Martin Short as well as a rat.

But hey, I was always a fan of the music...never really cared too much what the artist looked like.

a good modeselektor introduction would be their CD "happy birthday," which is the best approximation of their current style (a surprisingly effective mixture of techno, hip-hop, dubstep, dancehall, etc.). their "boogy bytes" mix is also good fun.

The real story here is the great Ellen Allien's return. So, yeah...

To Anon 7:22 pm re: Studio B

I spoke to the guy at Other Music about Studio B the other night. He told me that it's not reopening. He said the owners of the space got fed up with dealing with the promoters and the complaints and that they felt it wasn't worth the hassle. According to him, Studio B is closed for good.

R.I.P.

Wow, I initially thought that was a photo of Clay Aiken

I am soooooo excited to see Ellen and Modeselektor in SF. I saw Ellen and Sascha Funke a few months ago and they destroyed the dancefloor. The music and mixing were so excellent, and at one point I had no idea what I was hearing anymore. It was pure sonic ecstasy. Yay!!!

I received 1 st personal loans when I was very young and that helped me very much. However, I require the commercial loan as well.
