Chris Liebing announces all day long free burn slow album launch event

MUMBAI: Chris Liebing has announced a free** Burn Slow album launch event on Saturday 8 September in Amsterdam. Doors are open from 1pm until 11pm and during the set, Chris will be playing out the album in full for the first time.

 “Something super special for me (and hopefully for you) is coming up. To celebrate the release of my new album on Mute, Burn Slow, we are doing a special free album launch in Amsterdam – I hope to see you there," Chris Liebing

 All Day Long, in association with Loveland, will take place at Kaap Oost Amsterdam, an amazing secluded location on Zeeburg Island, close to Amsterdam. It will be the perfect place to escape the city and burn slow.

 Chris Liebing’s forthcoming brooding electronic album, Burn Slow, is out on 7 September 2018. The 10-track album features vocal contributions from a diverse range of artists: Gary Numan, Miles Cooper Seaton (Akron / Family), Mute labelmate Polly Scattergood (onDeadWaves), Cold Cave and Aleen, and is Liebing’s first album release for Mute.

 While retaining the framework of the techno beats that Chris Liebing has dedicated his life to for the past 25 years, here he also seeks out new harmonic territories, taking aim at the heart rather than the feet, in order to tackle some deep themes. The key concept of presence - the idea that everything is happening in this moment, and that everything in the past is mere memory - form the thematic backbone of the record. It’s something Liebing got in touch with via the philosopher Alan Watts, not to mention decades of getting entire dance floors lost in the present.

The Burn Slow project began its evolution with two remixes, for Depeche Mode’s Going Backwards and Goldfrapp’s Everything Is Never Enough – both artists associated with his new label, which has been an inspiration for Chris Liebing since a young age: “Without realising, a lot of the music I was into came from just one label, Mute. I vividly remember dancing around at my neighbour’s house in the early ‘80s to songs by Depeche Mode and Yazoo. Banging my head in dark basements to the likes of DAF, Laibach and Nitzer Ebb to name but a few.”

Chris Liebing’s forthcoming DJ schedule is as relentless as ever, with performances scheduled worldwide throughout the summer including an all night long set at E1 in London for the August bank holiday weekend.
