Peter M. Kersten aka Lawrence / Sten launched the Dial label in 2000 together with his flat mate and Dj friend Carsten Jost. With his Labelmates Pantha Du Prince, Efdemin, John Roberts it is not only the music they spread, residencies in Berlin’s Panorama Bar or Ego Club Hamburg and the House Music sublabel Laid Records make the Dial imperium go round. He’s also the head behind the “Smallville” record store and label. After an enormous amount of releases on labels like Pampa, Mule Musiq, Ghostly International, Kompakt, Styrax, and many more, Lawrence continues with a wonderful selection of extraterrestrial dance music with his new album ‘Films & Windows’.
Gerd Janson is the quintessential DJ’s DJ, unearthing the gems that get other music lovers hot and excited. The man has his plate full. Whether at the helm of the long-running Liquid club night at Frankfurt’s Robert Johnson with DJ comrade Thomas Hammann or at Berlin’s Berghain/Panoramabar, dishing out simmering analog House as co-owner of label Running Back, or having penned many a story for Germany’s Spex and Groove magazines, not to mention his scholarship of American studies, he seems to run on more powerful batteries than the rest of us.
