Earlier this year Ellen Allien dropped her seventh solo LP, ‘Nost’, an ode to the music that has been at the epicentre of her career, and life, for over two decades. The album provided a link between the past and the future, blending influences from the very early days of Berlin techno with contemporary sounds and, of course, a vision of the future.

Now we have the first batch of specially commissioned remixes, taking Ellen’s original works in a new direction with four artists delivering their own interpretations of the music featured on the LP. The new mixes embody the spirit of the album, thoughtfully reimagining tracks to retain the original nostalgia while adding a distinctly new flavour to them. Emmanuel Top, ROD, K-Hand and Skudge are the first ensemble of techno titans to administer the remix treatment to tracks from ‘Nost’. All four artists have established their own unique sound and made an outstanding contribution to techno.

K-Hand reps Detroit to the fullest, a woman who has been active since the very early days and continues to be a powerhouse on all fronts. She was the first Detroit artist to release with the legendary Warp Records, one of many outstanding achievements on a very long list. Tenacious and talented, K-Hand is in a class of her own.
