Lawrence

I have recently started writing reviews for Stylus Magazine, which I think is pretty cool cause I used to follow their reviews quite closely and its nice to now be a small part of their team.

In any case my most recent review was for the last 12" by Lawrence, which consisted of remixes of Along the Wire by Troy Pierce and Superpitcher. You can go here to check it out. Superpitcher did the apparently difficult job of living up to his former hype, but it was the troy pierce stuff that really suprised me. I have been kind of listening to his stuff from a distance, not completely involved in the output, but the Painted by Scholars mix just drew me in. I can't really explain why, although it is sleek and a bit sexy. Check it out for yourselves.

Thanks for the comment maeda. Haven't seen you around here in a while. I have been afraid that my overly eclectic choice of music has been throwing people off.

Congrats on penning for Stylus - I read Stylus many times a week.

I fell on the "Lawrence" train a couple months ago, after hearing his track open up the "Today" mix-cd by Superpitcher & I have singlehandedly beein trying to buy all of the Lawrence music I can find. I'm lovin the new EP "Deep Summer Hole" - the 1st track "Off The Line" reminds me of 2001 A SPace Odyssey meets Lil' Louis...

Yea I am interested in the Trentmoeller too! Gotta check that one out. Oh, and I have access to a server again so the streaming will return as soon as I can figure out a quick way to do it.

Mike, if you can track down his (Lawrence's) albums on dial. The absence of blight is very nice.
