In the first of a new film series, RA finds out where it all began for one of techno's favourite artists.
We are all, in some way, a product of our environment. Where we come from continues to influence us throughout our lives, even if we end up many miles from where we started. Our early years are often the most defining, and it was with this mind that we started ORIGINS, a new film series that discovers how artists' roots have shaped their lives.
For our first instalment, we travelled to Linden, a small village in the German countryside. It was here that Chris Liebing first became drawn towards the dark, melancholic music that would set him on a path towards techno stardom. Along the way we visit the sites of his earliest successes (and failures), culminating in a cathartic act that allows him to confront his past and look forward to his future.
