Our Saturday selection:
Chris Liebing – Bruson EP (CLR, CLR093)
Chris Liebing relaunches his legendary CLR imprint with ‘Bruson EP’.
Landing on 16th July, Liebing’s three-track ‘Bruson’ EP sees one of Europe’s longest-running and influential techno imprints return after a five-year hiatus.
Now retitled Create Learn Repeat, the imprint has releases lined up from Frankie Bromley, Gene Richards Jr, Hertz Collision and more, with Liebing seeking to provide a platform for new and emerging talent and his releases.
“My initial motivation for running labels was to be able to release my music without the hassle of dealing with other labels, being able to release whatever I wanted, as well as releasing the music of friends. The first phase of ‘Chris Liebing Recordings’ ended when I decided to rename it to ‘Create Learn Realize’ so it could be a platform for other artists that I wanted to promote.
Since putting the label on ice in the mid-2010s, I’ve always missed label work and the connections that you have with other artists, especially the possibility to discover new upcoming artists and help them grow by giving them a platform for their music. I’ve decided to start Phase 3 of CLR, calling it ‘Create Learn Repeat’. There are so many talented young ones out there, and it’s fantastic to see and hear what they do and to be able to help them get a foot in the door of this business. Besides my own ‘first’ new release, I already have some great releases lined up by artists like Frankie Bromley, Gene Richards Jr, Hertz Collision, and more to come. Fun times ahead, let’s create, learn and repeat” – Chris Liebing
Released as Liebing prepares to drop his ‘Another Day’ LP in November on Mute, the ‘Bruson’ EP is a neat snapshot of his non-LP side, focused purely on the dancefloor and relentlessly gritty.
