Hyte is bringing some of the hottest artists of techno and house to Rotterdam. Get ready for…

Chris Liebing

Not only has Chris Liebing led the techno-elite for more than 25 years, but he has also undergone constant creative evolution during that time.

With a legacy that stretches back to Frankfurt’s iconic early scene, Liebing’s DJing experience stretches back even further to 1990 when he was playing hip-hop, soul and house in his university hometown of Giessen.Chris LiebingA job at Frankfurt’s Eye Q Records, plus a legendary residency at Omen Club, represented his entry into a lifetime of techno.

Leading his revered CLR imprint for nearly 20 years and famous for the incredible intensity he brings to his DJ sets, it was his refusal to stand still that saw him depart for the release of an artist album with the iconic Mute Records and to start a close collaboration with the legendary label.

“I’ve wanted to do something like ‘Burn Slow’ all my life,” said Liebing.

“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.”

Green Velvet

This Chicago legend has been taking ravers to “La La Land” for nearly as long as rave itself has existed, cultivating his love of house and techno while studying chemical engineering at the University of Illinois.

Eventually, it was chemical engineering of the Acid House variety that drew the focus of Green Velvet.Green VelvetReleasing music also as Cajmere with a focus on jackin’ Chicago house, he reserved his Green Velvet alias for music steered down “an Industrial lane.” His 1993 record “Preacher Man” was formative, inspired by a sermon from Reverend CL Franklin.

“The minute I heard it, I just wanted to record something with it, that powerful vocal,” Green Velvet told Moo Kid. “He even kept roaring the word ‘house’!”

In the early 1990s, he launched his Cajual label as well as its sister Relief imprint, and Green Velvet remains as relevant and present as ever as a new generation embraces house music across the US.

A soon to be announced special guest

One more big headliner will be added to the massive line up of Hyte x A Day At The Park 2019 soon. Expect something big!

Nicole Moudaber

Nicole Moudaber embodies the international spirit of techno, its ability to cross borders and speak a universal language.

Raised in Nigeria of Lebanese descent, she’s lived in New York and thrown parties in Beirut, now situated in her home of London via Ibiza.

A onetime protégé of Carl Cox and a regular on techno staples like Adam Beyer’s Drumcode label, Moudaber is also the boss of very own MOOD label and event series.Nicole MoudaberShe’s a slave to the pulse of the dancefloor and happily describes herself as a party animal; a lover of fast cars who holds a racing license, regularly hitting speeds of 270kph and upwards; and deeply passionate about activism.

Moudaber has worked for years with theLower East Side Girls Club in New York to mentor disadvantaged young women and most recently launched Eleven, her own campaign to end the practice of female genital mutilation (FGM).

“Nobody knows about this subject,” Moudaber told DJ Mag.

“I think these girls need a voice, and if I can be a bit of help, then my job is done in this world.” It’s this passion that shines through in Moudaber’s talent for rocking crowds the world over.

Nic Fanciulli

The beginning of Nic Fanciulli’s journey to becoming one of house and techno’s most prevalent and consistent DJs and producers began in one of the most old-school ways imaginable: he handed a cassette demo to a club owner, in his hometown of Maidstone in the South East of England.Nic Fanciulli“It was the place where everyone was playing – Carl Cox, Sasha and Digweed, Pete Tong,” Fanciulli told Traxsource. “I learned a lot of my craft there. That was my apprenticeship into music.”

While he still lives in Maidstone, he now DJs in every corner of the globe, launching his seminal Saved Records imprint alongside his brother Mark Fanciulli that is swiftly approaching its 15th anniversary.

He’s a regular for the Hyte celebrated events series, whether it’s a sweaty Amsterdam warehouse or a pristine island off the coast of Vietnam.

Wouter S

Utrecht house-head Wouter S is positioned prominently among the next generation of DJ/producers who are bringing authentically jackin’ sounds to thirsty crowds, with his innate knack for timeless house (with a delicious side of UK garage) really hitting the spot whether it’s an intimate label showcase for his own 44Records imprint or a pumping HYTE warehouse event in Amsterdam.Wouter SIt’s a profile that Wouter has built from grassroots beginnings up over the past decade, cultivated on the side while ensconced in a previous life working in IT and sales.

Electronic music is now his primary focus, and this year he’s introduced to the world what he describes as his “newborn baby” in the form of his new Kompai label.

You’ll catch him representing the Dutch house massive at Hyte events over the summer.

ADIN

ADIN is stalwart of the Netherlands’ incredible scene, arriving via a journey that took him from his home country of Bosnia to a Rotterdam record store.ADINHoning his craft in the days when vinyl was king and producing his first tracks in the early noughties, ADIN has kickstarted 2019 with the launch of his new DREEF imprint.

His sound is situated between European techno and his love for the more melodic side of the dancefloor.

“My Balkan origins added to this love of melodies, as music is a huge part of the culture on that side of the world,” ADIN told Pulse in an interview.

Beyond his Balkan roots, he points to his adopted home as the source of his inspiration. “I’m so happy that I’m living in such an amazing country like the Netherlands. We have the healthiest music scene in the world,” he says.

Chris Liebing Album Launch Event

Review: Chris Liebing Album Launch Event

A beautiful sold-out celebration for Chris’ second coming.

On the 8th September, 3000 fans flocked to the secluded location of Kaap Oost Amsterdam on Zeeburg Island to escape from the city and celebrate the release of Chris Liebing’s second album ‘Burn Slow’. At the truly one of a kind venue, the doors were open from 1pm and Chris performed an outstanding 10 hour set where he played some of the ‘Burn Slow’ records for the first time. Following this, the party went onto local club Shelter for an after dark session and another sell-out success.Chris LiebingThe All Day Long event was an incredibly special day for Chris as the intimate feeling and lovely atmosphere allowed him to connect with fans from across Europe and beyond. There was a personal connection which is often missed on busy worldwide tours with moments of conversation and record signing with fans were met with surprise gifts given to Chris.

Around the site, the Loveland team built stunning stage production which was married with the picturesque landscape of the river and vast open land.Chris Liebing Crowd‘Burn Slow’ is Chris Liebing’s stellar second coming and marks his debut on the British label Mute. Featuring vocal contributions from Gary Numan, Miles Cooper Seaton, Polly Scattergood, Cold Cave and Aleen, the album sees Chris seek out new harmonic territories whilst retaining the framework of the techno beats that he has dedicated his life to.

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 dancefloors lost in the present.Chris LiebingThe 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 album eventChris posted this over social media following the events “How can I ever thank you all for this unforgettable day last Saturday in Amsterdam. I was blown away from the beginning to the end. Love Land set up a mini festival that looked and sounded fantastic.

Smiles all over the place. Speechless.

The morning started with a great Interview at the Redlight Radio with Renske van Kollenburg, then I played 10 hours from 1pm to 11pm open air, being super lucky with the weather and it was amazing from start to finish.

And since that was not enough, I played another 4 hours at Shelter Amsterdam later on, so much fun!. What a day/night… still speechless.”

Chris Liebing’s album ‘Burn Slow’ is out now and available from here.
