// Chris Liebing
Chris Liebing is dj, producer, radio host and the driving force behind the labels CLR and Spinclub Recordings. A former hip hop and house dj in the 90s, no...w Liebing is widely regarded and recognised for his continuously evolving and distinct techno sound influenced by his stint at the infamous Eye-Q records in Frankfurt alongside Sven Vath. In 1999 Liebing founded the hugely successful CLR label which now includes a category of releases from the likes of Umek, Adam Beyer, Speedy J and Liebing himself and continues to nuture new talent in the shape of Tommy Four Seven, Perc and Traversable Wormhole. Liebing also completed four seasons as a Cocoon Ibiza resident and went on to co-host Meganite at Privilege Ibiza alongside Mauro Picotto in 2004 and 2005. In 2009 Liebing launched his weekly CLR podcast; boasting a phenomenal 250,000 listeners every month Liebing's podcast is one of the most talked-about and influential broadcasts within the techno community. Aside from Liebing's various production and radio achievements, he continues to headline the world's best clubs and festivals making regular appearances at Berghain, Time Warp, Cocoon, Awakenings and Space Ibiza.
Lucy: producer, DJ, founder of Stroboscopic Artefacts. That’s probably how you know him. But there’s also Luca Mortellaro, a published author, experimental sound designer, and the man behind the Lucy moniker. There’s no doubt that the two are linked, but it’s certainly the hidden facets of Luca Mortellaro that are responsible for the dynamic output of Lucy.
In 2005 Lucy left his native Italy for Paris. In search of romance? Perhaps. The fact that the very first demo he ever sent was noticed by James Holden makes Lucy’s story more than romantic, it’s fit for the silver screen. As he delved deeper into electronic music Lucy made the essential move from Paris to Berlin. It was here that one of the scene’s most exciting record labels was launched: Stroboscopic Artefacts. Under Lucy’s careful curation Stroboscopic Artefacts has emerged as a platform that illuminates pioneering electronic music. The fact that the imprint has garnered such international attention shows that whatever the key to Lucy’s elusive approach is, it’s working.
// Tommy Four Seven
British born, Berlin based DJ, producer and sound designer Tommy Four Seven, or known to some as just T47, is at the front of the new generation of Techno artists, creating his trademark deep and uncompromising sounds.
Learning to DJ from a young age, at 17, Tommy held a 2 year residency at Fire Club, London whilst appearing at legendary venues such as Fabric, The End and Turnmills. Producing was also an early interest and Tommy soon began releasing on David Duriez's, Brique Rouge and Kill Brique label, before launching his own imprint called Shooting Elvis.
After studying Music Technology in London, Tommy moved to Berlin and has been steadily building his catalogue of strong, moody and hypnotic tracks such as his 2009 hit, 'Surma' on Speedy J’s Electric Deluxe and more recently, 'Sor' on CLR, not forgetting the before mysterious 'Bauhaus' project with Chris Liebing. Tommy’s approach to music is unlike a musician. Instead, he prefers to sound design, recording and sculpting elements into deep engaging atmospheres. An impressive example of this extraordinary production ethos is his upcoming debut artist album “Primate”. It will be released on CLR in March 2011, which looks set to be his landmark year.
