A onetime gardener and an experimental techno producer with minimalist leanings, Lawrence (Peter M. Kersten) produced for Kompakt, Ghostly, and Mule Electronic, but the majority of his output was issued on Dial, the Hamburg, Germany-based label he co-founded with Carsten Jost and Turner. As with the material from a fair amount of his contemporaries, the division between Lawrence's rhythms and textures was often a blurry one, though he gradually embraced a cleaner sound with a broader instrumental palette. Throughout the years, his discography maintained a unique touch and downcast mood that mirrored the grayscale graphic design in which his releases were presented. His full-length works included Lawrence (Dial, 2002), The Absence of Blight (Dial, 2003), The Night Will Last Forever (Dial/NovaMute, 2005), Lowlights from the Past and Future (Mule Electronic, 2006), and Until Then, Goodbye (Mule Electronic, 2009), and he also issued dozens of 12" singles. Prolific in a remixing capacity, he took on tracks by Goldfrapp, Martin Gore, Superpitcher, Audision, and several others, typically with stunning results. ~ Andy KellmanPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
