Ada (aka Michaela Dippel) is one of the stars of the new German pop dance sound. Having released some of the hottest vocal pop singles of 2004, Ada set her sites on creating a full album of deft romantic dance music. With Blondie, she's gone right ahead and done it. Dippel has long held melody and timbre in high regard, from an early age she played music which led to singing in a rock band. Now she makes beautiful electronic dance pop which has been endorsed on mixes and remixes from Michael Mayer, Sven Vath, DJ Koze, Sascha Funke, Erlend Oye and many more DJs and discerning boutiques worldwide. The Blondie sound has been compared to everything from Basic Channel to Angelo Badalamenti and her voice has people referencing Chrissie Hynde and Erykah Badu. Dippel has one of the most unique sounds in the world, and one of the most modern. Stylistic, crafted pop that can be played anywhere and for anyone. Blondie will stand up as one of the most original albums of the naughties, and here it is right here, right now. Includes the now-well-played cover of "Maps" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Blondie was originally released in Germany in late 2004, now exclusively distributed in the U.S. 10 total tracks. Areal Records. 2005.
