Being Germany's Gateway to the World, the port city of Hamburg always had a special affinity for America. So, it's not surprising that Peter M. Kersten aka Lawrence has had a deep musical and spiritual relationship with the Detroit techno aesthetics for more than ten years now. His label Dial Rec, which he runs together with Carsten Jost, stands more than almost any other European address for the value-conscious cultivation of high-quality, melancholy techno. After seven albums under his producer aliases Lawrence and Sten, Kersten now continues the perfection of his sound vision also as a DJ in a congenial way. Timeless is far away from the dictate of the dogmatic obligation to the currentness that DJs have to face nowadays, but celebrates electronic dance music as a timeless sensual component. With instinctive certainty, Kersten covers 16 years of living club history without ever losing sight of the acoustic "here and now," or even becoming the slightest bit anachronistically nostalgic. Instead, under his sensitive hands, milestones of minimalized deep house like "Forever Monna" by Chez Damier, Ron Trent and Stacey Pullen (1995) or the 1999 club hit "Overcome" by Thomas Melchior/Baby Ford come together with contemporary and intensive homages to Detroit techno like Smallpeople & Rau's "Life Aquatic," Delano Smith's "My Life" or Pigon's fantastic dub tech romance "Beatmatching" in a wonderful way. Besides that, the mix features such well-known names such as Aril Brikha, Isolée, The Ifach Collective and Robert Hood, before Roman Flügel sets a wistful final chord with "Brian Le Bon," a track based on Duran Duran's masterpiece "Save A Prayer," and Plaid finishes the mix with the crystalline "OI." Lawrence's mix literally breathes the serenity of a light-flooded Sunday morning somewhere between a modernist city and a forest glade, and thus gives his global artistic approach a suitable dimension. Other artists include: Soul Capsule, Schatrax, RVDS, Morphosis, Mike Dehnert and Plaid.
