‘Grime MC’: Jme’s latest project is a lesson in authenticity in the social media age
Lawrence is a DJ and producer from Hamburg who co-found Dial Records, a label that is known for its orientation towards deep, subtle, emotive and melodic sounds since its launch in 2000. Besides Dial, Lawrence also takes care of Laid, Dial’s vinyl-only imprint, Smallville record shop and Smallville Records. He also produces under his minimal and techno-focussed alias, Sten.
On 15th September, Lawrence will play at Broken & Uneven present: The Hydra in London along with his Dial label affiliates, including Pantha Du Prince, Efdemin, Roman Flugel, John Roberts and Christian Naujoks. Redshape will also make a special appearance under his Palisade alias, which has seen the German producer release more house-orientated music on Laid.
