Chris Liebing is DJ, Producer, radio host of a weekly show and the driving force behind the labels CLR and Spinclub Recordings. His sound has continuously evolved during his DJ career, always true to his Techno roots. He was one of the first DJs that used the new possibilities in the course of the digitalization of music in a consequent and creative way. The real-time manipulation of the individual elements plays an important role in his sets. Due to the good co-operation with various software and hardware makers, his current setup offers him practically endless possibilities. He is a worldwide requested DJ and also part of the Collabs live act, together with the Dutch producer Speedy J. His productions and remixes appear in the play lists of numerous renowned djs.
Chris’s career started in 1990 in the area of Giessen, Germany when he was mainly playing Hip Hop, Soul, Pop and House. His growing passion for electronic music caused the opening of his own club called Spinclub in 1994. A job at Eye Q Records in Frankfurt provided him with useful experiences and contacts in the Techno scene. When he was called to fill in for a friend at the legendary Omen Club, he received enthusiastic reactions from the crowd. From this day until the closing of the club in 1998, he used to play there on a regular basis together with many international DJs.
In 1999 his well-established label CLR was founded. This was the time when he also started to receive top rankings in various categories of the reader polls of the popular music magazines, among them “best national DJ”, “best remixer” and “best producer” on a regular basis. In the beginning of 2001 he founded the pure remix label CLRetry and released mixes by producers like Marco Carola, Gaetano Parisio, Adam Beyer, Steve Rachmad, Speedy J., Chris Mc Cormack, DJ Rush, Ian J. Richardson and Ben Sims. In 2002 he started to work on his first artist album and the CLR website went online. From then on, the CLR office took care of his exclusive booking and the labels. When his album “Evolution“ was released by the middle of 2003 it received massive media attention and enthusiastic critics.
Since 2005 Chris produces in his own (obviously) “state of the art” studio in Frankfurt. 2009 was a year of many changes for CLR. Chris Liebing and his team celebrated the 10th anniversary of CLR, restructured the label, opened an office in Berlin and celebrated many great parties. The residency at the BE nights at Space / Ibiza became a big success. In the beginning of the year, Chris had begun with the production of the weekly CLR podcast, which by now counts more than 200.000 monthly listeners. He officially renamed CLR into CREATE LEARN REALIZE (as this is what he did most of his life) and by doing so he finally got rid of his ego in the label name.
With a long history in music, Chris Liebing is definitely not to be missed. His flawless mixing, and excellent track list is enough to send the listener on a musical bliss. Ryze has been doing an amazing job at bringing in some of the best talents in the industry, and Mr. Liebing is definitely one of the biggest. Come on down to Ryze Nightclub on May 10th, and let this techno giant take you on a musical journey, guaranteed to make you sweat buckets from all the dancing you will be doing.
