Talking acid techno with Chris Liberator

Reported by HarderFaster / Submitted 01-10-06 23:19

London is famous for many things: Big Ben, The River Thames, The London Eye, Buckingham Palace, black cabs, overcrowded tubes, red buses and acid techno. “Acid techno?” you ask? Yes indeedy, for London is the home of the Stay Up Forever Collective — djs, producers, record label and party organisers extraordinaire that all have one thing in common: a love of the acidy techno sounds that have become a musical sub-genre in their own right.

As Chris Liberator explains, it all started as “a fusion of Goa hard trance, techno and acid house” that wasn’t quite enough for the London techno crew, so they made a “grungy, dancey and faster” version, which became their sound. Coinciding with the early days of ecstasy and the rave scene, Chris and the fellow Liberators Aaron and Julian launched Stay Up Forever in 1993 with Paul Harding, with the mission “to make ‘avin it rave techno, born from London’s underground party scene.” It’s safe to say that over the last twelve years they’ve done an excellent job doing just that. The Stay Up Forever Collective now consists of an incredible twenty-three labels and is home to production legends D.A.V.E. The Drummer, D.D.R. and Guy “Geezer” McAffer, among many others.

With SUF now at the helm of a massive international acid techno scene, Chris regularly plays at parties and festivals around the globe, including South America, Poland, Australia, Spain and... squats in Hackney. Having been involved in the underground techno free party scene since its inception, the Stay Up Forever Collective have done their best to emulate their name over the years. The scene’s also been a direct inspiration behind such dance floor greats as ‘One Night in Hackney’ and ‘Hackney Council are a Bunch of C*nts’. But with even Chris being forced to slow things down over the last couple of years due to becoming a father and the record industry facing some of its hardest days yet, is there really a future for such a sub-genre? I met Chris for a coffee in Camden one Wednesday morning for a chat about punk, politics, raves and fatherhood. And of course, I also asked him about this thing called acid techno and where it’s heading.



What inspired you to get into music in the first place? Did you always plan on being a musician or was it something that came gradually?

I think I just remember listening to music all my life. You’re either born with music in you or you’re not! I bought my first rock record when I was six. It was Slade’s ‘Goodbye to Jane’, which is well showing my age! Then I was in bands for years, so everything was music, music, music.

You were originally in punk bands. Do you think you’d ever play in a band again?

Not in a rock band, I don’t think. Having said that, me, D.A.V.E. the Drummer and Guy McCaffer have both got projects coming up. Me and Guy are going to do a proper old school DIY punk band with a drum machine and guitar. Me and D.A.V.E.are going to start a more Underworld-style band. These are still secret projects, it’s all just a matter of making the time!

D.A.V.E. and Guy’s old band are reforming to do a gig. A lot of the older people are getting back into it.

So would you seriously get back into it then?

No, I don’t think so. I remember lugging stuff around and a lot of hard work, but it was all good fun!

What made you leave punk and the band scene for dance music? Do you ever have any regrets about this?

No, no regrets. I was really into punk and DIY music for ten years and very political about it too. But the bands and the music got stale. The politics were compromised. The punk scene got into its own ghetto. Dance was fresh and more inspiring, which made it more interesting and a challenge.

By the end of the punk days the band had split. We flirted with commercial music, got a record deal… and it tore the band apart. However I’d never go down that road of mainstream music again, it’s a cattle market. I’m not saying I’d never work for a major label, but I wouldn’t use my music for an ad!

The last band I was in was poppy, a purely indie sound. I enjoyed their music, not just the load guitars and shouting! But as soon as we got commercial it destroyed us.

You’re regarded as one of the founders of acid techno. For the uninitiated, what is acid techno?

It started off as a fusion of Goa hard trance, techno and acid house. It was very much a sound pioneered by Hardfloor, German producers whose records we were playing. Before that, the Underground Resistance made hard acid records using 303s. There was some good stuff coming from Belgium around 1990, which I liked but their records were few and far between.

The Underground Resistance moved on. Jurgen Driesson and Acrid Abeyance from Germany made acid with techno. But it wasn’t enough, so we started to make out own version. It was a lot more grungy, dancey and faster. That’s how it started being our music as we started making it. I met Lawrie Immersion, Guy, D.A.V.E., Karl Hendrix, Giselle and lots more people who worked with sound development and it became a London techno sound, not just 303s, but hard pumping music. It was a bit more having it and party orientated than the stuff going on in the States. Now we had a sub genre and it was developing in a different direction.



For someone keen to learn about techno, which artists should they check out?

It’s such a varied music scene, with so many strands. Not all get on in terms of diversity, as even within acid techno there’s so many styles. For our stuff, someone not familiar with it should check out Stay Up Forever, D.A.V.E. The Drummer, D.D.R. and Guy McCaffer. The Fat Collective from Wales are making very good London-style techno. There’s some great Spanish producers. A lot of people are moving towards electro. D.A.V.E. is making Apex. Bandwagons come and go but we always take our ideas from other sources. There’s not many making hard techno that I really rate cos there’s a lot jumping ship. There were a lot I used to like but times are a-changing! It all depends what the person likes, I could recommend lots that very many hate. If they like it hard check out Jeff Armadeus. If you like minimal, you can’t go wrong with Adam Beyer and Richie Hawton. Techno and acid have such a spectrum these days!

How would you say your sound has changed and evolved over the years?

It’s funny cos for a long time it was getting much more techno orientated, making 303 noise and going really hard. I’ve been around house and tech house, but our scene has become a niche so I don’t want to give up making music. If there’s nothing similar, we need to keep the harder edge of the techno scene and acid. It’s always moving forwards, so recently taking elements of electro. Me and D.A.V.E. and Guy are always adding a bit more music. We’re reaching back in time and getting guitars! But don’t worry, we’re not going to stop making acid techno.

We chat about the recent trend in hard dance and psy trance for live acts to use guitars: Lab4, Greg Brookman, Astrix. In my opinion, when it’s good it’s very good, but when it’s bad it can be quite horrid. But where to draw the line? Indeed, a cautionary tale for other genres to learn from. But I know Chris has got some much more interesting stories to tell…

Being involved with the likes of Spiral Tribe, you must have some incredible memories of the early days of the rave scene. What stories in particular stick in mind that you can share with HF readers?

There’s millions of memories, and funnily enough there’s a show on Radio 1 at 10pm tonight [Wednesday 27 September] about it! It’s a doc on the free party scene, with some live debate.

There’s been lots of big weekends. The Castlemorton festivals, Torpedo Town, where the whole massive thing caught fire! The fire brigade had to come.

I think my best story is when we first went to France in ’93, to a summer place called Milau. All the English went over. It was completely in the middle of nowhere. I was playing at another party in France, so drove down for miles in the heat. Suddenly all the French kids in cars were panicking, as there was one policeman at the top of a hill. I get there and all the English are sitting around, smoking weed. The police had never seem anything like it before. The French kids all buggared off as they were afraid of the police. Eventually the French police don’t know what to do, so they send for the CRS. Someone puts on a French tune and the CRS run in. Everyone still just sits there, smoking away. It’s midday, so no-one’s dancing in the hundred degree heat. One of the Spiral Crew came over and put a tune on with a siren in it, and eventually the CRS had to go away again. It was that real English mentality, “Fuck you, we’ll do what we want!”, it summed it up. There were soldiers with guns and no-one cared… so that was a funny moment for me!

There’s been hundreds of lost weekends, maybe not all like Desert Storm in the Midlands, a tiny party of 50 people and the police turn up. Someone let their tires down and dented their roof. The police found their car f*cked. Everyone’s like, “It wasn’t us!”

We’ve been stopped by the police hundreds of times. I’ve never had stuff or records taken, but at one of the first parties in Brixton I had to get the stuff out straight away and just run down the road with a Technics turntable under my arm. We were involved in the Immersion raves, which inspired the Hackney Council to retaliate and they took the rig. Lawrie released a record about it: ‘Hackney Council are a Bunch of C*nts’.



You’ve been actively involved in the free party scene over the years. How did you get into the free party scene? Do you think it’s changed much in the last couple of years in particular?

I got into it really from the punk and squat scene. Lots of my mates were squatters and when techno came along a lot of my friends were throwing parties in squats and trying to throw warehouse psy parties. My friend Dan who I’d been in a punk band with since we were 15 was involved in the punk scene, then we got into techno, but didn’t feel that comfortable in big raves. We had squat parties at a pub in Islington with more than one style, sometimes bands downstairs and techno upstairs… Funnily enough Beamish played in 1990, that was how I met Beamish. At that stage I was buying records but not dj’ing, but that really got us going. Beamish played at one of the earliest parties, so he’s someone I respect as he was there from the beginning.

I started to get involved in the first Spiral parties. Julian [Liberator] got involved in Bedlam, then we got to know the whole thing cos we got involved with Conspiracy. We started working with the traveller scene, and that’s how we got involved with Spiral and Bedlam for the Summer of ’92. They all went to the Lechlade Festival. We hooked up with Bedlam. Conspiracy had the truck; we had decks and backdrops. Bedlam had rigs and we became one of the best rigs at festivals. We stayed and did the next festival at Castlemorton. Conspiracy were arrested so we carried on working with Bedlam. 91 and 92 were the crucial years.

As for the last couple of years, the squat party scene has changed and had a bit of a re-think. The scene in Spain, especially Barcelona, is amazing. So are the people doing DNT in Bristol, they’re really active doing the technical thing, so I think outside of London it’s bubbling away, especially places like Wales, people are getting the London systems out there. There’s a lot of positivity in the rural areas, with the younger generation in particular.

In London there’s still great rigs doing parties in Willesden, Hackney, so it’s all gone a bit more underground again so that venues can be held down. It’s the one-off places that attract the wrong element at the moment, the trouble makers don’t always get in but there’s a smaller vibe. We’re talking of getting a bit of a party together this winter.

It’s been a bit more technical over summer, with people like DNT and the younger promoters now finding their own feet, and plenty of others, so I think there’s a positive future for it at the moment. It’s different for me now having had a baby, I’m not able to go out and play so much. It’s now every month, not every week!



Would you say the personal is political? What key political issues mean a lot to you?

How you live your life is the most political statement you’ll ever make. However, the longer you’ve lived your life, the more you realised that you’re compromised by society. You can’t fight 100%, you have to live within it and try and change people’s opinions. It’s very difficult but that’s how society changes. Revolutions don’t really change how people think. If everyone agrees, for example, that smoking dope is good, eventually everyone will believe it.

The big party political system is a joke. We’re bombarded with branding, money and capitalism and everything about that, and we have to live within that. How you perceive your life is controlled against. I’m really against that! You have to live your life and make little changes, that aren’t all about money. I’m vegetarian but drink milk — it’s the best I can do to help things a little bit more!

Some of the free party people say, why not go for the money? But I don’t want to sell out as I’ll only mistreat myself.

I’m very very political and don’t believe in the system as it is now, but the only way to change the system is to live your life the way you want to live it, then eventually things change.

Has having a child changed your views at all?

It’s changed my life but not the way I think.

If we live in capitalism we must adhere to its principals. I don’t want to always play for money and will play for nothing at free parties. I would rather do that than playing for money.

If you’re involved in the free party scene, there’s still an anarchistic side, the fact it’s rebelling the cult of overpriced expensive clubs and commercial music. The free party scene is directly against that. That is politics. At the same time it can be vacuous to say “I’m against the system” and sit and take ket all day, that’s pointless.

It doesn’t matter to me if it’s techno, punk, writing, films, so long as it’s counterculture against mainstream culture, then there’s always hope. Inspiration comes in many different forms, that’s why music is such a catalyst.

Who have been your formative influences over the years? And now?

I’ve got so many records and so much music. I love punk and DIY ethics. After 77, punk was putting out it’s own music on independent labels. It had the energy of punk combined with the fact you were doing it yourself. So it’s not just about one band. I love dub reggae to hard techno, so it’s really just music.

So much over the years has inspired me, but the fact is it comes down still to punk, Crass, old punk, even the Jam might get me going enough to go and make a techno record with a political slogan.



In the few years you’ve been to South America and played at some amazing festivals around the globe. What highlights stand out?

SP Groove in Brazil’s fifth birthday. It was an amazing party. There’s a clip of me and D.A.V.E. playing back to back on four decks out there. That’s probably my favourite party of the last few years.

There’s been lots of great parties in Venezuela. Unity and some of the early parties in Venezuela were excellent. All over the world really, I’ve played at some great places everywhere! There’s been lots of brillliant parties in Europe — Poland, Spain. I’ve been to some great countries and been really inspired by great things going on.

If you could only take 5 albums to a desert island what would they be?

Well I wouldn’t take lots of punk to a desert island so let’s rephrase the question or I’d have to take lots of dub! If I could only have 5 records for the rest of my life, I’d take:

1) The Sex Pistol’s first album, ‘Never Mind the Bollocks’. It’s such a great raw rock album, it’s so angry.
2) Wire — ‘Pink Flag’
3) Horace Andy — ‘Dance Hall Style’ (The Bullwackies’ Dub)
4) Pink Floyd — ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’
5) Something chilled, cos if I’m going to be listening to these albums forever I’ll need something chilled.

The techno squat party scene can be pretty hard core. Do you reckon some of the boys take it a bit too seriously, or is techno a serious business?

Yeah sometimes they do. Obviously there’s different rigs and different politics. There’s musical attitude and style wars: hard techno vs experimental French techno vs acid techno vs house. There’s always going to be heated debate, ‘Isn’t the D&B in French techno boring’, etc. The usual wars about whose party it was and money.

You’ve got a wicked website at TrustTheDJ.com. Why Trust the dj rather than doing your own thing or the ubiquitous MySpace?

They gave me a website when I did an album for them. I’m not a big internet user so don’t want to spend hours doing that. I’ve got a new MySpace site on its way, and a new Stay Up Forever (SUF) site which I’ll use MySpace to promote, as well as chrisliberator.com. The new SUF will be much easier, as I only get round to updating chrisliberator.comevery few months. The new SUF site is almost ready to be launched, we’re just fine tuning it. The MySpace SUF has just been started, then we can use that to direct people to the other sites. It’s a tool to use but I’m not a nerd so try and avoid using it all as much as possible.



You’ve made loads of productions over the years. Do you have any favourites? Are there any in the pipelines you’d like to share with HF readers?

My favourite thing is the two Halo albums made with D.A.V.E. The Drummer a couple of years ago. They’re quite obscure and not our usual stuff. If you want to listen to more of a funky techno vibe, it’s probably the best music I’ve made.

As for acid techno — X-Ray OK (SUF) is the favourite record we’ve made.

We’ve just done remixes of ‘One Night in Hackney’, so there’ll be two remixes on SUF coming out just before Xmas. Me and D.A.V.E. thought long and hard. But out of all the major producers we could have asked, we decided to go and do it ourselves. So we go down to the pub, get pissed and come back. The B side has the vocal, the A side another story in the same vein, about going to a poncy Shoreditch bar, spending all your money on beer then getting the bus to Hackney to party. The first one meant a lot to a lot of people, if you’ve been to a squat party. The second is just silly!

You’re headlining the techno room at Astrix and Friends on Saturday 14 October along with Mark EG, Renato Bastos and Breno Ung, Ross vs Moon, Morgan Cameron and Reminiscence and Paul Panik. How will your set at Antiworld vs Teknoworld be different to what you’d play at a free party, if at all?

It probably won’t be that different. Antiworld has its own crowd. It’s a big heavily publicised event. You get a lot of people coming that don’t have access to more underground parties, so they’ll come a long way. They’re really excited to hear the music so perhaps I can get away with playing a few more hits. But it’s still a London crowd, so probably a few hits and a few squat party tunes for the people used to hearing music week in week out. I’m playing last so I’ll keep it bouncey, the Antiworld crowd is used to that.



Do you reckon psy parties and techno parties work well together, or are the crowds too different?

It’s the problem with everything at the moment. Everything is more and more polarised, scenes and crowds are more and more polarised. Enrico [of Antiworld] is really trying to get people along and get a few people bleeding between two, but people know their music these days. Techno people can be snobby but if they went to listen to psy trance for an hour they might love it! I’m all for different rigs and if people wander round they may love it. The reality is, for a promoter you have to attract a different crowd… so, why not?!

Do you have any projects, productions or parties on the horizon you’d like to plug?

Not at the moment, but we’ll be doing some more parties over winter. KN is coming in January from Japan, he’s our ambassador in Japan. His club called Mass in Tokyo is great, our little outpost! He’s been making a few records with us.

We still do a party called Nuclear Free Zone once a month, which has been going for over 10 years, but we’re not always there. It’s at a nice little club with a nice little crowd, once a month at the 414!

Of course, there’s the Stay Up Forever site at www.sufcollective.com if you want to find out about our music. You can hear all the tunes, buy all the records find out about the parties links to loads of other websites, producers and so on all through there. Check it out in about two weeks for our new site!



Finally, over the years you must’ve seen huge changes in music production technology in the studio. What are your views on all the new toys available?

Well my studio is packed down and a lot has happened since then. I’ve been doing stuff with D.A.V.E. and Guy but time is limited as I’m looking after my baby two days a week. SUF has 23 labels and loads of artists, and I do the accounts, so there’s a lot of hard work to keep that scene going, so Aaron and I have stepped out a bit. But Tabitha is getting older and into nursery so I’m getting back into it. I’ve been out because of Tabitha and now things like Abelton are taking over. I’m getting to learn it and need to get back in the studio on my own. It’s moving so fast, it’s incredible. Having said that, I’m still in love with my old analogue synths, my musical arsenal!

Hey Chris, top interview mate!
Thanks for the support over the last couple of years, most appreciated.
You bet i'm banging out the acid, SUF style over here in Perth, techno's re-emerging over here which is all good, needs more work though but we're getting a community together!
Will definitely see you some time next year, one way or another, have a great party on the 14th and say hi to Aaron and co for me!

Respect!

Al
