Artist Interviews :: Chris Liebing

Dubspot prides itself on its unique position in the music industry, and the involvement of hi-profile artists that often accompanies it.  In October, Dubspot’s Director of Communications Adam Sellers was lucky enough to sit down with German techno mainstay Chris Liebing, who has been an instrumental figure in the European electronic music scene for years now, whether through his hi-energy DJ sets, his productions and remixes, or his label CLR which is now celebrating it’s 10 year anniversary.

While at the school, Liebing talked about his beginnings in the industry, his first DJ sets, finding inspiration, the transition from turntables to digital, and his current live setup, which now integrates Traktor and Maschine from Native Intruments with Ableton Live, along with an Allen & Heath mixer and Faderfox controller.  The interview at Dubspot flowed into a shoot at Cielo, where Chris laid down a fantastic techno set that clearly demonstrated his years of experience in reading crowds and adjusting accordingly.  Check out the video, and be ready for many more in the future from other Dubspot friends and allies.
