Debut album from 2001, repressed. "Finally Ellen Allien is now able to present her debut album Stadtkind The choice of title seems obvious, as the inevitable confrontation with Berlin as an urban area was always present in her childhood. This link is noticeable in the urban aspect of her music. She talks her own musical language within a psychotic, romantic and electronic plot. The chopped up sounds ornamented with atmospheric lo-fi attacks will keep you down and lift you up. The album contains among straight clubstompers and distraught spoken word electro, abstract down beat tracks too. Kneedeep and always straight out the middle of struggling daily life. The emotional range resembles to the concord's condensation trail: from light and airy heights to heavy as lead techno beats. The driving force is Ellen's vocals, which contains the whole musical spectrum of Sadtkind. It is the differentiated intensity of singing. You will never feel like you have to fall out of the window. In spite of all this, Ellen with her music on Stadtkind never gets lost in local vastness. The tough sound which boosts out of the speakers is still straight BPitch Control. Berlin can be everywhere, right?"
