There are at least 3 artists/bands with the name Ada. 1. Ada (Real Name: Michaela Dippel) is a German melodic techno/electropop artist and producer. Dippel started her musical career as a singer in a rock band back in 1994.
As the band slowly incorporated synthesizers and samplers into their repertoire, Ada too started exploring electronic music. Whilst already receiving acclaim for her remix work, it was her debut release "Blindhouse" that signalled there was much to look forward to from Ada and Areal Records. She made her debut as a vocalist in mainstream music on Metope's "Livedriver." A few months after that 2002 release, she put out her first production 12" for Cologne's Areal label (the same label responsible for "Livedriver") and went on to release her second and third singles, along with the occasional track for compilations and split-artist singles. Appearances on mix albums from Triple R, Tyrant and Erlend Øye also raised her profile, all of which led up to "Blondie" -- her first full-length, ten sumptuous mini-symphonies of synth pop, techno, and house, released in late 2004.
The covers of Everything But the Girl and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs that appeared on the album helped her gain recognition outside of the expected dance circles. Originally from Friedberg (near Frankfurt), Dippel played in a number of bands prior to her current incarnation. The first was a rock group, followed by a more synthesizer-based outfit that collapsed after three years when band members moved to other cities to pursue other musical directions. Sensing the promise a major change might bring, she moved to Cologne where many friends had relocated and, from there, her story develops incrementally and serendipitously. ...show less
