(Edit)

 

Press Info:
Chris Liebing has announced details of a new album, Another Day, set for release on Mute on 19 November 2021. The new album will be available on double clear vinyl and CD, both with a silver finish and 16-page booklet, as well as digitally.

Another Day – the follow up to his 2018 debut for Mute, Burn Slow – launches with ‘Whispers and Wires’ featuring Ladan (formerly known as Cold Specks) on vocals. On this new track, electronics simmer away gently, with Ladan’s vocals floating over before the two coalesce.

Another Day sees Liebing once again collaborating with an eclectic mix of artists, including several who were involved with Burn Slow. Miles Cooper Seaton, in one of his last performances following his sad and untimely passing earlier this year, and Polly Scattergood lend vocals to a track each, while Ralf Hildenbeutel returns to produce. Ladan (formerly known as Cold Specks), Tom Adams and Maria Uzor (Sink Ya Teeth) are new collaborators for Liebing.

“With this album, I wanted to take myself out of it as much as possible,” explains Chris Liebing. After three decades working dancefloors with pummelling techno, Chris Liebing has a formidable reputation as a DJ and is certainly comfortable with being in the spotlight, but for his solo work he has chosen a different avenue.

Liebing jokes that this is the result of him “getting lazy” but in reality, it’s more an exercise in intuition and spontaneity, allowing his musical experience – on and off the dance floor – to dictate the creative flow. “I’m a strong believer in letting the moment decide what’s happening,” he says. “If you’ve studied your set up and you know what you’re doing then you can let the moment take over because you’re not busy trying to figure out how things work.”

Despite Liebing very much directing and driving the shape, tone and essence of the album, he ultimately views it as one rooted in collaboration and one more contributor to the album is Mute’s Daniel Miller, “Daniel’s input was just incredible,” he says. “He brought his modular setup in our studio and he added this extra flavour.” This added element, combined with Hildenbeutel’s silky production skills, the eclectic presence of the guest vocalists and Liebing’s intuitive ear for compositions, results in something truly unique.

Liebing has begun work on reimagining the album for a club context and later this month, will premiere some of this music for the first time when he takes part in Beatport’s new three-part series Game Changers, in collaboration with Microsoft. A 90-minute DJ set will be broadcast from Teufelsberg, a decommissioned Cold War listening station, in West Berlin on 26 May, with a documentary to follow in early summer.

Press Info:
Nghtly presents his newest album on X-IMG titled “Il Preludio Della Fine” (Prelude To The End), a 42 minute frenzied combination of searing lo-fi percussion, anguished vocals and lacerating synths.

Francesco Tella (aka Nghtly) was born and raised in Napes, Italy & began his sonic journey in 2016. After initial experimentation he has crafted his work into the realms of ebm & minimal synth, influenced heavily by post-punk and industrial movements. His work recalls a repression held over time and an attempt to send a desperate message to a decaying world through sound. His albums “Illusion of Being” [Clandestine Records] and “Pensieri Di sangue & L’Alba Del Caos” [DETRITI RECORDS] tells us a bit about his story until now.
