The German techno titan is now affiliated with the longstanding UK label.
Liebing, the long-time German techno producer and CLR label boss, released his first track on the iconic UK imprint, "Novembergrey," to go with today's announcement. The track was co-produced by Ralf Hildenbeutel.
"Without realizing, a lot of the music I was into came from just one label, Mute," Liebing says. "I vividly remember dancing around to songs by Depeche Mode and Yazoo and banging my head in dark basements to the likes of DAF, Laibach and Nitzer Ebb. Things came full circle when I found myself in the Mute office, and I'm delighted to be working with [label boss] Daniel Miller, someone I've known for years, and Mute, a label I have known for longer still."
Listen to "Novembergrey."
Novembergrey is out now on Mute Records.
