Damn right! This is a landmark selection with very memorable bits of Chris Liebing's genious invention called Audio from back in the days of the real uprising of German techno showing Detroit where to stick it up their ass. Some of the ruffest and most original parties tied to his name because of this concept of super harsh and basic, 'square' professionalism that's for sure!

Seriously now, this one is not be overlooked! This release packs ten relentless, stern and severe tracks which made Chris Liebing, well, Chris Liebing. There's no experimenting here, just the good old, punishing german hard techno he got globally known for delivering. Huge and loud drum kicks and snares marching with throbbing bass lines. Basic, raw and minimal. No crap, no strings attached. Most tracks don't develop, amount to massive climaxes, let alone explore any unpredictible territory, but once they move beyond the first minute or two, they tend to repetitively drill in your head with ridiculously hard and intense drive. Don't confuse this with the modern 'schranz' sound, this was actually some of the most ferocious electronic music getting played at parties some time ago, with Chris Liebing being one of the pioneers of this uber mechanical and harsh feel the music had. The fact he recycled the same old for around a decade is another matter entirely, regardless, "Early works" captures the essence of his youthful days.
This is techno that is desgined for making you crazily wield your closed fist high up in the air while wilding out. It's music with the crystal clear intent of ripping roof tops off clubs, without the slightest hint of aiming at anything else. From where my musical tastes stand, that is downright fabulous. The inclusion of Liebing's career defineing tune, Dandu Groove, should be a reason enough on its own to get this. If you know what that one sounds like, you get 66 minutes more of that goodness. Goes with anything pulsating and hard from the era, be it Glenn Wilson, old Adam Beyer productions or Marco Carola's stuff on One Thousand Records!
