Chris Liebing's not a fan of "ultra-commercial" EDM, but it stirs interest in the underground

Recognized as one of the most important and influential figures in underground dance music today, Frankfurt's Chris Liebing is a DJ, producer, label-boss and the charismatic host of the popular weekly CLR Podcast. A longtime player in the international club and party scene, Liebing has seen his status rise considerably thanks to the current fashionability of electronic dance music in the United States -- although he remains a devout believer in underground techno and one of the most respected names in the business. We traded emails with the techno luminary in advance of his first-ever performance in Denver this Friday night at NORAD Dance Bar.
