Biography

There are at least 3 artists/bands with the name Ada.

1. Ada (Real Name: Michaela Dippel) is a German / artist and producer.

Dippel started her musical career as a singer in a band back in 1994. As the band slowly incorporated synthesizers and samplers into their repertoire, Ada too started exploring 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 , , and , 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 circles.

Originally from Friedberg (near Frankfurt), Dippel played in a number of bands prior to her current incarnation.
