Ellen Allien set to release latest part of ‘We Are Not Alone’ compilation

Berlin techno DJ and producer Ellen Allien and her collective We Are Not Alone are set to drop the sixth part of the second 'We Are Not Alone' series.

With parts four and five having been released in the last month, the sixth instalment is due on July 15.

These three parts accumulate into 36 tracks - with 12 per part - and are dedicated to the We Are Not Alone event series, showcasing a plethora of Berlin underground techno talent.

The compilation features artists that have played at the parties since the event's launch in 2016, as well as those who will be found on future line-ups. Alongside music from Allien, tunes featured on the sixth part of the compilation include Etapp Kyle, Nur Jaber and Nene H.

“I started We Are Not Alone at Griessmuehle - a Berlin underground techno club - to create a new event about harder techno and a space which is fresh and new, to explore techno and this wide feeling which techno is for me: freedom, creativity, and new space,” Ellen tells Mixmag. “I thought about the We Are Not Alone compilation because I wanted to show the sounds of the We Are Not Alone events and also bring the artists together, just like the event brings us together, in one piece of art, or one platform. It is to show the sound of what we are doing: it’s a platform for the music at present.

“It also is bringing together a lot of artists on the compilation, and I’m a big fan of bigger compilations because it really shows what we present at the event and what kind of music I like: deeper techno, hard techno, gabber, trippy techno,” she ponders.

Allien has also collaborated with director and photographer Stini Roehrs for a multidisciplinary project running alongside the release, 'AFTER DARK - Emotional States of Techno'. It consists of a virtual rave film, book and exhibition produced by Berlin's AKKURAT Studios.

With the We Are Not Alone parties now residing at RSO.BERLIN - where it returned with a 36-hour, 3-floor party in May - there are events lined up for later this month, August and October.
