Press Info (German):
Chris Liebing und Mute sind erfreut bekanntzugeben, dass Liebing bei Mute unterschrieben hat und veröffentlichen mit „Novembergrey“ gleich einen ersten Track, ein Vorgeschmack auf all das, was in Zukunft noch kommen wird

Seine Beziehung zum Label beschreibt Liebing so: “Without realising, a lot of the music I was into came from just one label, Mute. I vividly remember dancing around to songs by Depeche Mode and Yazoo and banging my head in dark basements to the likes of DAF, Laibach and Nitzer Ebb. Things came full circle when I found myself in the Mute office and I’m delighted to be working with Daniel Miller, someone I’ve known for years and Mute, a label I have known for longer still.”

Daniel Miller ergänzt: “After meeting up with Chris at numerous techno events, exchanging music and discussing ideas for many years, it was great to hear new music by him again and we’re delighted that he’s part of the Mute family.”

Chris Liebing hat zudem eine Reihe an Club Nights angekündigt – weitere Infos dazu auf chrisliebing.com

Weltbekannt für seine einzigartigen DJ-Sets, gehört Chris Liebing zur Speerspitze des deutschen Techno in Performance, Produktion, Distribution und Aufführung. Seine Sets wurden an anderer Stelle als sonische Reisen zwischen Dunkelheit und Licht beschrieben, immer weit abseits des musikalischen Mainstreams. „Novembergrey”, koproduziert von Ralf Hildenbeutel, zeigt eine neue, dynamische Facette seines Sounds.

Press Info:
Five years after his critically acclaimed debut Drone Logic, London-based producer Daniel Avery has announced the release of his highly anticipated second album Song For Alpha, set for release on 6th April 2018, via Phantasy.

In the years since his debut, Avery has helmed a DJ-Kicks mix CD, resided over a monthly radio show for NTS Live, curated an extensive remix compilation and collaborated on a series of side-projects including a recent release with Nine Inch Nails synth specialist Alessandro Cortini; he has toured relentlessly, cementing a reputation as one of the defining techno DJs of the decade. He has also worked studiously on what he wanted to say next as a producer.

Song For Alpha is Avery’s exploration of the space in which home listening and club music intersect, in no small part inspired by his transient life spent between nightclubs, flights, the passenger seats of cars and hotel rooms. He confirms, “Drone Logic’s spiritual home was the dancefloor. This record’s is definitely the road. Those late nights and hazy mornings, finding inspiration beyond the fog.”

With newfound energy and time to develop, Avery’s sonic vocabulary has expanded. Here, the booming sound of the big room is brilliantly countered by the music of the small hours. Where celestial ambient lullabies ‘First Light’ and ‘Days From Now’ sit perfectly next to the mesmeric techno assault of ‘Diminuendo’ and ‘Sensation’; where both ‘Projector’ and ‘Clear’ evoke early rave records, only ones engulfed by waves of beautiful cyclonic distortion. Much like his recent excursions with Cortini, Song For Alpha sees Avery take his signature psychedelic-electronic sound to new dimensions, a sound that plays to the head as much as the body.

“I’ve become increasingly interested in those moments in a club when the outside world becomes little more than an inconsequential thought at the back of your head. Eyes closed as opposed to hands in the air. A light emerging from the darkness – this is the idea I repeatedly returned to in the studio. The more time you spend with it the deeper you fall. Close your eyes, press repeat.”

[Special]: Nitzer Ebb – A Selection Of Videos

Artist (Music):
Nitzer Ebb

 

Introduction:
Today is the 24th February… short: 24/2 … For some electro heads it is the EBM day (242 from “Front 242”). So we want to celebrate this day with one of the most influencing EBM bands which also had a strong effect on us. Nitzer Ebb.

Nitzer Ebb was initially formed in Chelmsford, Essex by school friends Douglas McCarthy [lead vocals, guitar], Vaughn ‘Bon’ Harris [vocals, percussion, guitar] and David Gooday [percussion] in the mid 1980’s. The trio caught the attention of PWL producer Phil Harding, who then produced their 1985 debut single “Isn’t It Funny How Your Body Works?” and helped them set up their own label, Power Of Voice Communications.

After three single on their own imprint they signed with the legendary Mute label, run by Daniel Miller. The debut album “That Total Age” followed some hit single “Murderous” & “Let Your Body Learn”. 4 other great albums were released on Mute until 1994 – “Belief”, “Showtime”, “Ebbhead” & “Big Hit”.

Then the band broke up for more than 10 years. In 2009 they reunited for the release of “Industrial Complex” album on Major Records.

Enjoy some of their finest songs & videos from their Mute era ….
