For “Our Utopie” Ellen Allien rescues the fine art of cut-and-paste and applies it to her own whispery galaxy, paper cut-out versions of herself dancing choppily in the gaseous ether. It’s a pretty marriage of old-world fanzine techniques and contemporary DIY YouTube technology, another highly stylized creative endeavor the German minimal techno ingenue can add to her title as revered Berlin DJ/label boss/conceptual street fashion designer/generally awesome woman. Go see her on a boat if you’ll be in Barcelona for Sonar next month, and be sure to cop Dust, out next week.
