Biography

Known for his prominence on Frankfurt's dance music scene since the early '90s and for creating eclectic and atmospheric compositions, Chris Liebing is a German techno producer and DJ. He was known for his collaborative work with other producers as well as his own raucous and eerie techno, delivered on albums such as Evolution and Collabs 3000: Metalism. He landed his first DJ residency at the Red Brick club in the town of Giessen in 1991. After the club closed in 1995, he went on to work for Eye-Q Records, where he became friends with Andre Walter, and the pair soon got to work building their own recording studio to record their own material. Throughout the '90s, Liebing released productions for a number of labels -- Clau, Molecular, Primate -- and in 1996 also launched his own imprint, Fine Audio Recordings, which he used to put out a number of singles and EPs, most notably 1997's Dandu Groove and 1998's Drumcook. In 1999 he went on to launch CLR, which saw the release of his first full-length, the philosophy-heavy Evolution, which also featured Walter on production. He promoted the material through sporadic DJ spots around Europe while working on further material. Liebing won the trophy for Best National DJ at the German Dance Awards in 2003. Two years later, he worked with Speedy J on Collabs 3000: Metalism, which was released on Novamute. A period of inactivity followed while Liebing focused on DJ'ing as opposed to production. In 2009 he launched his own podcast, also titled CLR, which saw Liebing present a number of his own mixes as well as guest mixes from the likes of Drumcell, Tommy Four Seven, and Martin Gore of Depeche Mode. Liebing kept busy with the podcast and DJ'ing internationally for almost a decade before returning in 2018 with his third album, Burn Slow, released via Mute Records. The effort featured Gary Numan on the track "Polished Chrome (The Friend, Pt. 1)." ~ Rob Wacey
