Risa Taniguchi & Black Asteroid team up for ‘Acid Flesh EP’ on Chris Liebing’s CLR.

Black Asteroid, aka Bryan Black, a former engineer for Prince, has appeared on CLR, Mute, Electric Deluxe, Kompakt and others and has soundtracked runway shows and collaborated with Rick Owens and Raf Simons. Teaming up for the first time together on Chris Liebing’s CLR label, the duo deliver three gritty, hard-hitting techno tracks.

Shlomi Aber drops the four-track techno ‘Can’t Sleep EP’ on Chris Liebing’s CLR.

Born and raised in Israel and DJing and producing since 1994, the Be As One label head Shlomi Aber distils influences from Jazz, Funk, Minimal, Acid and beyond into his own style of Techno.

Press Info:
Chris Liebing, Drumcell, and Truncate deliver the collaborative ‘The Heights EP’ this August on CLR.

Teaming up for the first time, the techno trio comprising Chris Liebing, Drumcell, and Truncate drop two massive tracks on Liebing’s CLR imprint. With the artists having all previously contributed to the label and appearing on the likes of Droid Recordings, Mote-Evolver, Blueprint, and Mute between them, the combination of talent across the record results in two heavy, mind-bending, and precise techno cuts.

Leading the release, ‘DTL’ brings hard, swinging drums, twisted low-end, and modulating synth lines together for a heavy-hitting peak time bomb. ‘SGV’ sees the three producers meld rough textures and rattling percussion with constantly rising FX, with a trippy breakdown thrown in to keep dancers on their toes.

Press Info:
Previously appearing on CLR with ‘Command EP’ in January, the Greece-born, Poland-based DJ/producer DEAS returns to Chris Liebing’s imprint with ‘Symmetry EP’. Bringing another set of no-nonsense techno tracks, the BAU MUZIK honcho shows off his production chops across four sizzling productions.

‘Symmetry’ leads the release with grinding synths, ghostly vocals, and pumping percussion, moving into the rough ‘Crypto’, which brings subtle modulations across an evolving, drum-led arrangement that is equal parts sparse and dense.

‘Phase Two’ follows with trippy bleeps, metallic hits, and heavy low-end meeting for a rugged, late-night offering. Closing out the release is ‘OB’, which sees DEAS toy with creeping strings and textured loops, strung out across a 4/4 kick pattern for a tense and direct finalé.

Press Info:
Chris Liebing and Drumcell remix Truncate on CLR this June.

With releases on the likes of Blueprint, Mote-Evolver, and his own lauded self-titled imprint, Truncate, aka David Flores, has become renowned for high quality, groove-based techno over the last ten years. Regularly playing at techno institutions such as Movement Festival, Awakenings, fabric, Berghain and many more, Truncate’s jacking DJ sets and productions have won him an army of electronic music fans.

Arriving on Chris Liebing’s CLR imprint, the LA-based artist delivers two high-octane originals, backed with remixes from label-boss Liebing and alumni Drumcell. Leading the release, ‘Intact’ sees rumbling kicks interlaced with textured percussion and trippy bleeps throughout the slick arrangement. ‘User 7’ follows with sharp, rocking drums peppered with spine-tingling synth hits and swung shakers.

Drumcell, fresh from his ‘Severance Check EP’ with Thomas Hoffknecht on CLR, brings beefed up low end and rattling claps for his take on ‘User 7’. Rounding out the release, Liebing himself steps up to remix ‘User 7’, introducing meaty acid lines, crunching hats, and dense FX for a heaving interpretation of the original.
