Biography

Peter Kersten (AKA Lawrence, AKA Sten) 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.

Following numerous EPs and two full-lengths spanning the labels Kompakt, Ladomat 2000, and his own Dial, Kersten released his incredible Spark EP on Ghostly International in the fall of 2004. Spark asserts a mastery of atmospheres, serving as a convincing argument that dance beats have a versatility that makes them immensely relevant and undeniably enjoyable in any setting. In Spring 2005, Lawrence released The Night Will Last Forever, his third album and first for Novamute.

He also co-owns the small yet absolutely well selected record shop Smallville Records in Hamburg and Paris.
