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.

(Ralf Hildenbeutel Remix)

 

Press Info:
Chris Liebing announces landmark 100th release on CLR this April The legendary German techno producer drops two originals and a remix from film composer and techno/trance pioneer Ralf Hildenbeutel.

‘Time’ and ‘Sup’ are two fierce and uncompromising techno tracks in the mould Liebing has become known for throughout his career. The remix from Hildenbeutel, a collaborator on Liebing’s LPs for Mute Records and a member of pioneering trance acts Cygnus X and Earth Nation, displays his cinematic composing chops with a sparse, atmospheric take.

“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” – Chris Liebing

Liebing’s iconic CLR imprint started in 1999 and returned in 2021 after a five-year hiatus. Initially titled Chris Liebing Records until 2010, then Create Learn Realize until the break, and now Create Learn Repeat, CLR reemerged in the techno underground with releases from Liebing himself, followed by newcomer Frankie Bromley, upstarts Hertz Collision & Gene Richards Jr, and DEAS, as well as veteran Luke Slater.

Press Info:
Drumcell and Thomas Hoffknecht team up for ‘Severance Check EP’ on Chris Liebing’s CLR this March.

Working together for the first time, Los Angeles’ based Drumcell, previously a core CLR artist, and Hamburg-based DJ and producer Thomas Hoffknecht join forces for ‘Severance Check EP’ on CLR, turning in four heaving techno tracks for Chris Liebing’s imprint.

Leading the release is the original mix of ‘Arrp’, which sees two further edits throughout the EP. Bringing heavy synth stabs and pumping drums, the track kicks off the release with a bang. Following is the ‘Cut Edit’ of ‘Arrp’, bringing a headsy dose of alternate stabs and loose claps to the mix for a rowdy edit.

The title track, ‘Severance Check’, follows with tripped out bleeps, reverberated percussion, and crunching sound FX before ‘Arrp (Tool Edit)’ closes out the release with a dose of pounding kicks, sizzling hats, and monstrous breakdowns.

Liebing’s iconic CLR imprint, started in 1999, returned in 2021 after a five-year hiatus. Initially titled Chris Liebing Records until 2010, then Create Learn Realize until the break, and now Create Learn Repeat, CLR reemerged in the techno underground with releases from Liebing himself, followed by newcomer Frankie Bromley, upstarts Hertz Collision & Gene Richards Jr, and DEAS, as well as veteran Luke Slater.

“Luke Slater has always been one of my favourites. From his early work in the ’90s through to his incredible Mote-Evolver label, it’s always great to hear what Luke’s working on and it’s a pleasure to have him remix the release that relaunched my CLR label. I hope you all like it when you hear it!” – Chris Liebing

Arriving for his first release on Liebing’s recently re-launched CLR imprint, the BAU MUZIK boss delivers three electric techno bombs.

‘Lemon’ leads the pack, with tough FX swirling around hard-hitting and evolving percussion before ‘Terminal’ follows with its rough drums interplaying with booming low end, headsy textures, and bleeps. Closing out the release is ‘Command’, which takes a trippy approach with dense stereo work, hypnotic synth lines, and staccato basslines working in tandem with rolling kick drums and sizzling hats.
