Two weeks ago I published Squat Rocking 10: Chris Liberator in the 90’s, a tribute mix to original London acid techno hero Chris Liberator. In the blog post I mentioned that I had contacted Chris for an interview but hadn’t heard back. A few days after publishing Chris got in touch and asked if I still wanted to do the interview. Of course! So last Monday I called him up, hit record (thanks Otter.ai!) and we had a nice chat about the early days of the Liberator crew, the birth of Stay Up Forever, how the London squat party scene developed through the 90’s, the genesis of the acid techno sound and much much more. Obviously it’s edited for clarity but I’ve tried to keep the editing pretty minimal, so that you can really hear Chris’ voice clearly.
It was a very interesting discussion!
Enjoy the full transcript below … I suggest reading it while listening to the mix. 😉
