Chris Liebing

Chris Liebing is dj, producer, radio host of a weekly show and the driving force behind the labels CLR and Spinclub Recordings. His sound has continuously evolved during his dj career, always true to his Techno roots. He was one of the first djs that used the new possibilities in the course of the digitalization of music in a consequent and creative way. The real-time manipulation of the individual elements plays an important role in his sets. Due to the good co-operation with various software and hardware makers, his current setup offers him practically endless possibilities. He is a worldwide requested dj and also part of the Collabs live act, together with the Dutch producer Speedy J. His productions and remixes appear in the play lists of numerous renowned djs. Hereafter some milestones in his career:

It all started 1990 in the area of Giessen / Germany when he was mainly playing Hip Hop, Soul, Pop and House. His growing passion for electronic music caused the opening of his own club named Spinclub in 1994. At this time he also gathered his first studio experiences and founded the label Soap Records alongside with friends. A job at Eye Q Records in Frankfurt provided him with useful experiences and contacts in the Techno scene. When he was called to fill in for a friend at the legendary Omen club, he received enthusiastic reactions from the crowd. From this day until the closing of the club in 1998, he used to play there on a regular basis together with many international djs.

In 1996 Chris left Eye Q and founded his first label called Audio. Before the labelґs closure in spring 1999, they released 17 tracks, amongst them his productions Audio 07 and Audio 11, which received worldwide recognition. At the same time Chris developed a new passion by presenting his first radio show Evosonic Update which supplied the party crowd every Friday afternoon with party tips and vinyl critics on the radio station Evosonic. In 1999 his well-established label CLR was founded. This was the time when he also started to receive top rankings in various categories of the reader polls of the popular music magazines, amongst them “best national dj”, “best remixer” and “best producer” on a regular basis.

In the beginning of 2001 he founded the pure remix label “CLRetry” and released mixes by producers like Marco Carola, Gaetano Parisio, Adam Beyer, Steve Rachmad, Speedy J., Chris Mc Cormack, DJ Rush, Ian J. Richardson and Ben Sims. In 2002 he started to work on his first artist album and the CLR website went online. From then on the CLR office took care of his exclusive booking and the labels. When his album “Evolution“ was released by the middle of 2003 it received massive media attention and enthusiastic critics.

This summer many things started moving, for example on Ibiza. After playing for the first four Cocoon Ibiza residencies, this year Chris played for Carl Cox. In the following years 2004 and 2005 he co-hosted Mauro Picottoґs Meganite at Privilege, where he also hosted the first and promising Spinclub season (named after his club in Giessen) in 2006. In the following year the Spinclub continued at Space. Inspired by the successful season at Space, the label Spinclub Recordings was founded in the beginning of 2008. The first residency of the Spinclub Radio Show started in summer of the same year on the radio station Ibiza Sonica. Due to the big success, another weekly slot on Ibiza Global Radio followed in December.

Since 2005 Chris produces in his own (obviously “state of the art”) studio in Frankfurt. In the same year a productive and still persisting friendship between him and Speedy J. began, which so far resulted in the album Metalism on Novamute and various singles. The current releases have just come out and there are plans for another Collabs album.

2009 was a year of many changes for CLR. Chris Liebing and his team celebrated the 10th anniversary of CLR, restructured the label, opened an office in Berlin and celebrated many great parties on Chrisґ club- and festival gigs. The residency at the BE nights at Space / Ibiza became a big success. In the beginning of the year, Chris had begun with the production of the weekly CLR podcast, which by now counts more than 250.000 monthly listeners. He officially renamed CLR into CREATE LEARN REALIZE (as this is what he did most of his life) and by doing so he finally got rid of his ego in the label name.

2010 CLR starts off with a new distribution by Word And Sound. The first common project is the 10 Years CLR Compilation with 10 exclusive tracks by some of the finest techno producers of our time.

This week´s #AMFM 174 is the first part of my opening set at the @wet open air festival in Gärtringen near Stuttgart end of June. The venue is a beautiful public open air swimming pool and due to the fact that I had to travel to the south of England on the same day, I did the early opening shift. The doors opened at 10 in the morning and by the time I started playing at 11:30, the dance floor was just about to get a little busier, so I was able to play a bit more of “opening” techno. And if you have been following this show for a while, you know that I like to do this wherever I can. This time was no different. I loved every minute of it and would have gone on for longer if I wouldn´t have had to leave at some point. The dance floor was packed and happening already half way through my set and so I was able to take it up a notch in the second hour. Fantastic weather, amazing people, great venue and sound… what more can you wish for. Hope you enjoy that little journey.

This week´s #AMFM show is the third and last hour of the set that I played at the @Great Wall Festival in Beijing China. This gig was the third in a row of my little Asia tour in May, which also brought me to Seoul and Tokyo the nights before. Great nights, and because of that and our flight schedule, we arrived in China with very little sleep. But who needs sleep when you have the Great Wall to visit. Our amazing host Yucheng took us to visit the wall prior to my gig at the festival, and this little sightseeing tour was quite fantastic. I did a Facebook post back then, in case you missed that: or if you like Instagram better:
As we arrived at the festival, Carl Craig played a banging set on quite a stage that was designed in a historical fashion with an army of Chinese clay soldiers standing left and right and a DJ booth that was set in an old horse carriage. Now imagine all this, set right in front of beautiful mountains with parts of the Great Wall of China as a backdrop. You can see some of it here, as @be at tv also broadcasted the show, but due to weather conditions only the first 1h: . I had a great time playing there, the energy was so good, but sadly due to increasing rain, I had to finish an hour earlier than the expected 4h set time. So here´s the last and final part, you can download the entire set with less talk from my website… Hope you enjoy the show and please leave some comment if you want.
