Lawrence Resident Advisor Podcast
When I have to explain to someone that I know deep down doesn’t give a crap about dance music or they file it under club music in their head it really gets me down right in the middle of the conversation. I usually try and speed talk thru and explain the sound as 90%(more like 96% actually) of dance music is awful and there is 10% thats gorgeous. Lawrence in my mind can make mix for a grandmother, a politician, a baby thats falling asleep, a clubby kid riding around in a Nissan Cube, a construction worker that watches alot of Everybody Loves Raymond and I truly think if they got to sit thru one of his sets they’d find out how good this music is, so whenever I find a Lawrence mix I usually ride it out until even the MP3 is worn down like a track shoe you’d find on the side of the road.
“The mix is inspired by the early hours of a deep club night, when the magic is going to be built up and everything is open. I selected old and new all-time faves, deep and danceable – just lovely music.” – Peter Kersten aka Lawrence

I’ve really enjoyed the sets I’ve downloaded from RA, I just wish they were at 320 rather than 128.

Yup, really nice mix this one. I have started a deep house podcast also. Mixing isnt as tight as this one but you might like some of the tracks

Yes, an awesome AWESOME mix this one. Everything that is good about electronica is here; bleeps, blobs, techy grooves, some sultry vocals stabs – really nice mix.
