Coming from a contemporary, pop vocalist background, Michaela Dippel’s entry into electronic music was not the easiest. Not only did the artist who would become known as Ada have to drop the support of several band members to collaborate with on music, she needed to push herself beyond the regimented confines of the traditional pop song structure. She began to produce for the Areal label in 2002, quickly making her name synonymous with the label’s minimal tech house output. Although her records at times seemed to move at will over a broad spectrum of techno and its affiliate genres, the one thing underpinning Ada’s work has been her keen ear for eking out memorable melodies from unlikely sources. This has seen her forge a strong body of work spanning nearly ten years, two albums and over a dozen single releases. She provided LWE with our 90th exclusive podcast, which she titled “Nightime”; a deliciously cosy mix of melodic techno that will warm even the coldest heart.
