Peter M. Kersten (Sten) ESSENCE Vinyl Record

Peter M. Kersten (Sten) ESSENCE Vinyl Record
Lawrence aka Sten aka Peter M. Kersten presents his second full-length album for the Dial label, taking US on a deep journey from Hamburg via Berlin and Detroit City to reach the stars. Two decades of inspiration from house music and techno has brought him to the Essence. Kersten launched the Dial label in 2000 together with his flat mate and DJ friend Carsten Jost. After his Lawrence releases on Ghostly International, Cocoon, Mule Electronics, Kompakt and Sender, it is the Sten moniker which reduces Kersten's musicality to the magic moments on a minimal dancefloor. His deep and functional Detroitish minimal techno has been the DJ's choice from the first 12" to Sten's album Leaving the Frantic, released in 2004 on Dial. Kersten has toured around the world, inviting the dancing people on a deep journey into Lawrence/Sten-sound, hitting the floors in Russia, the United States, South America, all over Europe and even Japan, where he released a compilation in 2006 of his best tracks, remixes and some exclusive new tunes.
