BPitch Control label boss Ellen Allien will join the ranks of Sascha Funke and Modeselektor when she releases latest edition of the label’s Boogy Bytes compilation series. Yes, that is the series that features pale-faced European techno artists making strange faces on the CD covers. This installment, due out on March 31, is said in a press release to be “a motif of motion, consisting of bass lines and effects.” Allien herself is a little more to-the-point when it comes to describing the mix, calling it “emotional, noisy, trippy, weird, and sexual.”

She also promises a new, AGF-produced album, SooL, for May of this year. In the meantime, Sascha Funke will join her on the road for a few select U.S. tour dates.
