Going back a few years for these sounds. Pre electo house and before Superpitcher had gone and freaked us all out with his adult contemporary debut Here Comes Love. Melodic midtempo techno/ house was still in its ascendancy and great things seemed possible. Lawrence released The absence of blight to very little fanfare, but much appreciation on my part. He produced a techno album that seemed to owe as great a debt to BOC as to Kompakt. Shimmering and atmosphere are words that seem to get thrown around alot in reviews of his work, as is the nefarious word melencholic. Perfect for an overcast afternoon.
