Nost is Ellen Allien's seventh studio album, and it's the first one since 2010's Dust to focus on the dance floor. As each track demonstrates, this is the place where the Berlin DJ really belongs. The album begins with the rolling groove, pitch-bent male vocal and eerie synths of "Mind Journey" and the queasy bass of "Innocence", before Allien opts for a more raw option, audible on the stab-heavy "Jack My Ass" and "Call Me", which unfolds to rolling sabres and air-raid sirens. Unlike some of her previous albums, there is no high concept on Nost - as the firing, building techno of "Mma" shows, it is simply a collection of killer club tracks.
