Chris Liebing recently released his landmark 100th track on CLR as the German techno producer dropped two originals and a remix from film composer and techno/trance artist Ralf Hildenbeutel. ‘Time’ and ‘Sup’ are two techno tracks in the mould Liebing has possibly been known for throughout his career.
The remix from Hildenbeutel, a collaborator on Liebing’s LPs for Mute Records and a member of trance acts Cygnus X and Earth Nation, displays his composing chops with a sparse, atmospheric take.
Chris Liebing: “CLR was never something I expected to grow, but it has, and I’m immensely happy about it. The support the label has had over the years is incredible, and I’m really lucky to have been able to release so much music from so many great talents. Relaunching the label and hitting the 100th release is an honour.”
Liebing’s CLR imprint started in 1999 and returned in 2021 after a five-year hiatus. Initially titled Chris Liebing Records until 2010, then Create Learn Realise until the break, and now Create Learn Repeat, CLR reemerged in the techno scene with releases from Liebing himself, followed by newcomer Frankie Bromley, Hertz Collision & Gene Richards Jr, and DEAS, as well as Luke Slater.
