This year, Smallville Records is celebrating a decade in the game with the Smallville Ways compilation.
Two years after his In A Rush EP, Lawrence is back on Smallville with another release dedicated to the island of lunacy and love: Manhattan. Approved by visionary dancers from all around the globe, Smallville41 presents three enthusiastic tracks- the pulsating tech-jazz ballad ‘Nowhere Is A Place’, the title track featuring Ghostly Internationals most wanted Heathered Pearls and a particular forward stepping bouncer sending greetings from Sten.
While Peter “Lawrence” Kerten is perhaps best known for his stripped-back approach to house and techno, many of his greatest records have explored his deep-rooted love of ambient music. It’s great to see, then, that this sixth full-length sees him in full-on ambient mode, variously laying down picturesque, becalmed compositions, twinkling productions and hypnotic.
Styrax mix classic House and Techno from Sistrum, Workshop, Dial , Trelik by Sunpeople, Lawrence, Patrice Scott and Even Tuell.
Hypnotic deep house tune with melancholic piano chords with monotone synth sounds to very nice ambient house sound from Lawrence on Mule Electronic.
