Lawrence

Real Name:
Peter M. Kersten
Profile:
Peter Kersten used to be a gardener. His love of nature imbues a wistful spirit into his minimal techno structures, and a sense of organic progression is evident in all of his music. Having started the Dial label in Hamburg with his friends Carsten Jost and Turner, he became a producer of minimal club music that is equally apt for the dancefloor and the armchair. Some of Kersten's favorite artists include Theo Parrish, Gas, and Isolée, a fact that tells of the many shades to be found in his work as Lawrence.

If Baudelaire were born in the XXth century and had made music, he would have certainly sounded like Lawrence. This man, particularly with his works from the 2000s, created what I like to call "literary music". This Dial's co-founder is the anti-hedonistic, the anti-pop side of electronic music. His works used to sound like classical literature written again with music notes. No wonder he used to be a gardener, his music is particularly subtle and organic, and always tells a story. Haunting, wistful, meticulous, as broody as luminous, and of timeless good-taste, Peter M. Kersten is a poetic cornerstone within the world of alternativ music, and certainly one of my favourite musicians from this new millenium. If you do not know him, "The Absence Of Blight", "The Night Will Last Forever" and "Lowlight From The Past And Future" are his ultimate creative treasures. What he delivered later (and at the moment) are still a work of genius, but what he used to craft in the 2000s is absolutely unique and will never be done again, by no one, nor by Lawrence himself.

This guys is a master on flow, and is serious about the basslines. Many of his tracks are suave skin-crawlers.
He is also a discount John Cusack :)

Peter M. Kersten aka Lawrence is one of those producers, who are staying little bit on the background of electronic scene. He has created his own stylistic, very deep, soulful and finally engaging developed harmonies, that definitely deserves for some attention. The remix of Francesco Tristano's 'Introit', released on prestige Deutsche Gramophonn is my favourite one, I can boldly admit that is on my top 10 of electronic tracks. I would choose this one as the most representative mark of his output. It is a masterpiece, both as a remix and perfectly entire song. Just listen. Finally - his latest album on Dial records (he is one of the co-founders), which fits perfectly to his previous works and appoints over 10 years of making truly beautiful electronic music. Films and Windows is one of those gems, that are getting better and better after several listenings. I can listen his music very often without beeing bored after some time. Looking forward to next releases
