Berlin-based Ada (Michaela Dippel) releases her first full-length on the Kompakt label, bringing together a collection of new and unreleased music, her highlight remixes, renditions of her tracks touched by friends, plus even a lost, alternative take of her most-loved song, "Blindhouse," recorded together with International Pony's Cosmic DJ. Areal released her triumphant 2004 debut album, Blondie, and due to her gorgeous melodies and undefinable appreciation for techno/house music, she set a new standard for the electronic musician artist album and brought a roar of appreciation from artists, fans and critics from around the world. Ada has also performed all over the place (even launching a DJ career), releasing a steady stream of singles between Areal and her new imprint, International Records Recordings. Plus, there's been loads of remixes. Adaptations -- Mixtape #1 is lovingly blended together, but is not to be confused with a DJ mix. Instead, it is a collection of highly-memorable moments in her illustrious career. Diving in, Everything But The Girl's Tracey Thorn broods over Ada's delicate beats, propelling us into a new world of modern electronic pop music. Degrees of distinction roll throughout Adaptations. From her electro-tinged Booka Shade remix, to the house-drenched cycle of "Forty Winks," to her musical duet with Raz Ohara of Apparat fame, Adaptations showcases a speculative depth rarely heard in her music and reveals a more matured aspect to her own productions. Bringing a slight twist to the typical remix collection, Ada invites some of her favorite remixes onboard: studio-mate Dee Pulse hits back house with his unreleased remix of "Fizzmann," and Tobias Thomas and Michael Mayer team up to tackle the unforgettable Yeah Yeah Yeah's cover of "Maps" that originally appeared on Blondie. It's safe to say that Ada has brilliantly succeeded in creating a personal mix tape that everyone should own.
