magical, mystical and straight from the heart: after "until then, goodbye" and "a day in the life" the hamburg based art curator, dj and producer lawrence releases yoyogi park - the third part of an album trilogy for mule musiq in collaboration with artist stefan marx.
the album explores unknowingly relations between his very own ambient productions, acoustic sound experiments and the driving force of the dancefloor. the artwork is showing a 360° degree view of the yoyogi park in the heart of tokyo, that stefan marx created for a fanzine for the printed matter nyc book fair in 2015.
known to all people in tokyo and worldwide, the yoyogi park seems to be just another gorgeous everyday green life spot. but behind his beauty and anonymity you can find much craziness and mystery, too. it's like the latest ten tracks by lawrence: behind his abstract beats and compelling functionality you will discover parts of magic with a full-colour palette of mind-expanding sounds.
some of his album tracks contain live samples that he recorded in his hometown hamburg with his band sky walking, consisting of christian naujoks, rvds and himself. others are versions of previous released dreamily sublime ambient tracks.
a one-of-a-kind blend of varied, deep, widescreen and star-crossed electronica that works romantic and enchanting.
his excellent new recordings seduce with in depth house rhythm sensibilities while spreading otherworldly melodies that are almost physical. his vividly immersive tracks have been again produced up-road. some started in his cosy backyard studio in hamburg.
others have been crafted and tough out on the road between cities like berlin, buenos aires, new york city and tokyo. they are all highly entertaining with some analogue warmth in the bloodline that spreads mystery and allure.
lawrence also used some field recordings that he recorded while being in the streets, parks and nature. little particles of a compelling bigger musical picture that is carrying us from joy to melancholy. and even tough the album is made for the dancefloor, its shimmering brilliance goes far beyond usual club music euphoria.
wonderful compelling stuff that could be the perfect starting point for anyone interested in delving into lawrence exclusive world of intimacy and subtly shifting grooves and tones. it is an enchanting one, where feelings unfold in rhythms and melodies without loosing their intenseness during their transfer.
