She's been playing gigs in record shops, buying and playing lots of vinyl, and made her new album, 'Nost', using mainly analogue equipment. Her seventh album is a real return to the dancefloor — deliberately so. It was created in her long-term home, Berlin — from where she runs her label, BPitch Control — although she now spends the summer months living in Ibiza. 'Nost' — taken from the term 'nostalgia' — is the sound of a DJ/producer still at the top of her game, as much in love with electronic music old and new as she's ever been.

Conan O'Brien tried his luck at getting into Berlin's Berghain over the summer, before being unceremoniously turned away by staffers from the famous German club.
The stunt, that was filmed for Conan's late-night American talkshow, attracted critics from the dance music industry including outspoken DJ/producer The Black Madonna, who wrote on a (now deleted) Instagram post: “I'm not humorless about any subject.
