CHRIS LIEBING feat TOM ADAMS – Circles – CLR Germany 12″
Chris Liebing and singer/producer Tom Adams, hooked-up originally after being introduced by Mute Records founder Daniel Miller.
First featured on his late 2021 album Another Day, ‘Circles’ is one of a number of impressing, ear-catching collaborations.
The track has the feel of a techno track written in the midst of a pandemic, with the great positivity offered by Adams’ emotive and hazy lead vocal countered by an exceedingly dark and druggy, arpeggio-style bassline and Liebing’s typically tough techno beats. Managing to be simultaneously scary, inspiring, paranoid and anthemic is a notoriously tricky task, but with ‘Circles’, Liebing and Adams have somehow achieved the impossible.
