Since the mid-'90s, German DJ/producer Chris Liebing has been pumping out dozens of rock-hard techno records, precisely engineered to wreak havoc upon dancefloors. His debut full-length, 2003's Evolution, was his first attempt to divert from his usual methods, incorporating found sounds, vocals, and even excerpts of Stephen Hawking text. Burn Slow is Liebing's first album for Mute (not counting a collaboration with Speedy J issued by NovaMute), following nearly a decade without any releases from the producer, and it goes much deeper into the direction previously hinted at on Evolution.

In 2015, this transition became more official. Liebing ended most activity with CLR, his techno label and podcast, which was once an inspiring platform for some of the scene's most promising acts.
