Owner and runner of the iconic label CLR, podcast, and radio host, music producer, and one of the most in-demand DJs in the world, Chris Liebing is a man who has had a huge impact on the techno scene.
We sat down to talk about starting out as an artist and the importance of building strong relationships and a reputation of trust with the people in the industry who will get your music heard…
The mentors and label owners who are your path to releasing on the labels you love and getting the gigs you dream of.
“Find a good person who is experienced and can guide you, you might be able to avoid a lot of mistakes because if you’re a young artist in this world, you’re kind of a really nice victim to a lot of experienced business people out there who try to take advantage of you”
Chris spoke about finding like-minded people to work with and surrounding yourself with people who have great knowledge in the business and are good at what they do…
“I would start to build up a relationship with the artist because it’s not only about the music it’s also about the character, the personality, the person who’s behind it…
…I want to find great new artists and I want to support those”.
This interview is gold from start to finish…
- “In order to meet those deadlines, forget about being perfect”
- “Don’t wait until you have a great studio, make music on your laptop”
- “Be yourself, because everyone else is already taken”
- “Creativity is everywhere around us. And if you are totally locked into your thinking mind, you are not going to allow creativity to come in”
