Fifth album, TEKHENU, for the seekers.


Holistic, soundscape storyteller The Allegorist takes inspiration from the ancient world for her fifth studio album, set for release on her label Awaken Chronicles. A sonic fable titled TEKHENU, it continues the trajectory that the Berlin-based electronic producer and sound-designer has been following since the beginning - conceptualising narrative-heavy LPs centered around mythical lands. Her new works depict a lost protagonist and her spiritual, inward search across ten enrapturing chapters.


As with her previous works, The Allegorist spins a poignant tale around the LP. The 10-chapter album comes with a short story, The Tale of TEKHENU, and every single will be accompanied by a cinematic trailer by Anna Jordan (The Allegorist). TEKHENU will be released both on vinyl and digitally on 05 May 2023 on The Allegorist's label, Awaken Chronicles. 


The title of the LP is a nod to the towering monoliths by the ancient Egyptians. Known to most by their Greek-given name “obelisk”, they stand tall around the world and it’s their global dispersion that inspired The Allegorist for the title of the album, seeing it as an allegory of a common bond, a point of connection. 


Two years in the making, TEKHENU comes after her warmly-received fourth LP Blind Emperor, a powerful cinematic techno outing. Released last February, it brought blistering battles waged across harsh, hostile terrain. “Blind Emperor is about the journey, and fight for one’s truth,” she explains. “This album jumps ahead through its protagonist and linked characters, exploring themes of human connection, intuition, guidance, evolution, freedom, and acceptance.” Heavily utilising her vocals across all her works, it’s within this LP that we are more fully indulged in her stunning vocal range and deftness in using sound design to contort the vibrations that she fervidly transmits.


TEKHNEU will be out on the 5th May 2023 via Awaken Chronicles.

The Round Table, a Blind Emperor remix album, was released digitally on The Allegorist‘s label, Awaken Chronicles on the September 9th, 2022.


Early this year, Berlin-based artist The Allegorist came out with her 4th album, Blind Emperor. The layered project used the power of soundscapes to create a detailed fictitious story of a mythical land that trudges through struggles on its way to revelations of prosperity. The protagonist, Blind Emperor, leads the charge into a brighter tomorrow in a textured aesthetic of an epic, cinematic, choral, ambient techno album. Anna Jordan (The Allegorist) has a holistic approach to her projects. She created the album art, wrote an included story and composed a poem that all combined to tell the imperial fantasy.


In another component of the aggregate story, The Allegorist is releasing The Round Table, a Blind Emperor remix album, including animations of an eclectic mix of coloured smoke representing each featured artist. She has also crafted a short story to go with the record, which depicts the origin of Blind Emperor's momentous gathering. Six enthralling artists each take a track from the original album and reimagine them in their interpretation. The remixed work adds another chapter to the fable of Blind Emperor with new layers of edge, tension, divulgence, plot and twisting paths added through the much-anticipated meeting. 





The featured track of the compilation  "Los Angeles x Berlin" is pioneering technologist and producer Daniel Troberg's "Give Energy", remixed by Berlin's rising star techno artist The Allegorist. The Allegorist’s remix is a high-energy techno track with dark, heavy, groovy basses, which grounds the swinging melody. Released on the 12th December 2022.

The Projekt Gestalten revision of the track Disillusion Echoes expands the idea of the original composition by supporting the melancholic chord progression with a new string section and highlighting the story, told by the soulful vocal cries. The pulsing techno elements not only give the track a new drive but also create a new atmosphere for the multidimensional emotion to thrive. They whirl up our rusty bones and create a space for the listener to embrace the feelings of loss, hope, and the love of life. Released at Awaken Chronicles on the 24th September 2021.

The Robot Koch rework of the track Dark Forces (originally taken from the album Hybrid Dimension II. by The Allegorist) is a deep and cinematic journey, with masterful transitions between subtle, sophisticated orchestral passages and intense build-ups, rich in sound design. A remarkable and immersive production confidently merging emotional classical music and forward-thinking electronica by the award-winning artist Robot Koch.


Released at Awaken Chronicles on the 10th September 2021.

The Headless Horseman rework of the track Unlimited Dedication (taken from the album Hybrid Dimension II. by The Allegorist) pulls the listener into a carefully built world that straddles sci-fi and fantasy.


Released at Awaken Chronicles on the 16th July 2021.

The Allegorist Remix of Neil Cowley's Time Interrupted was released on the 30th of July 2021.

Compilation TRACKS

The Allegorist - Until Dawn

on Railways A Berlin Compilation V.A. at Detroit Underground


"Some sonic communities grow even in isolation, in the lonely obsessive moments in the studio as time melts away. Deep inside the Detroit Underground nests a Berlin underground, chasing those resonant shared sounds. DU Berlin draws together some of that love felt through music in the German capital. It’s not the wild city of reunification or *Berlin Calling* or tourist-style movies or the EasyJet set. This is the side of the city that endlessly romances machines for the sheer joy of it, as The Allegorist titles her track, “until dawn.” And with some big names and emerging, ranging from mainstays to veteran agitators, the Berlin DU crew have telegraphed each other through productions and mutual inspiration. The results vibrate and rumble with sympathetic frequencies, but are never limited to grayscale or dithered palettes."
