"Peter M. Kersten aka Lawrence/Sten launched the Dial label in 2000 together with his flat mate and DJ friend Carsten Jost. To release their own stuff and the music of techno visionaries such as Pantha du Prince, Pawel (aka Turner), Efdemin and many others, the Dial crew found a distribution and friendship with Cologne's Kompakt universe. The music of Lawrence has often been described as something visual, imaginary, like a transfigured painting of all tones of grey, showing disturbing plants growing into any directions. But just have a look at the cover artwork of Friedrich Ploch, Sandra Thomsen and Peter M. Kersten himself and you even find the link. His debut album on Dial/Ladomat (2002) and the 12"s for Kompakt, Ladomat and Dial seem like a deep journey between, deepness and melancholy, sometimes a spark of humor or a drift into darkness mark its way. But Peter Kersten's music is not totally untouchable, concrete links to different styles as Detroitish techno, singer songwriters and E-music appear. And in the former present he returns more and more to the dancefloor- organic minimal deephouse with a touch of Detroit feeling is the new Lawrence."
