Ellen Allien

If this year’s your first Melt, you don’t know it, yet; if you’ve been here before, it’s become second nature to you by now: Ellen’s morning mass at Sleepless Floor is what badly written travel blogs would call a ‘must-see’. This term doesn’t even begin to describe Ellen’s live sets. You have to truly feel them. “With my music, I send out an invitation to all bodies to go on a journey. In our capitalist society, bodies are more and more disconnected. Everyone has to sit in an office working their brains and staring at laptops. Then I prescribe more partying, more sex, more movement – and you feel better already,” Ellen explains her philosophy. At least, the first and the third part, you can engage in at Sleepless Floor.
