Have you ever experienced the empty spaces of Ghost City Detroit? They inspired Sten aka Lawrence to this hypnotic 12inch- three versions of “Squares". The deep techtunes can be regarded as an hommage to early Derrick May tracks, Heath Brunner and all Detroit Techno Bunch from back to now. Functional Grooves from the Roland Machines on a melodic soundcarpet plus the mighty Detroit string section- this one is made to dance, eyes closed, the heart open. Peter M. Kersten aka Lawrence / Sten launched the dial label in 2000 together with his flat mate and dj friend Carsten Jost. In 2005 he released the record store and Label “Smallville” in Hamburg St. Pauli with 2 friends. After releases on Ghostly International, Cocoon, Mule Electronics, Kompakt and Sender a new Album - Sten “The Essence” will be published on Dial Records in May 2008.

SMALLVILLE07 in the media

Adultnapper (Audiomatique): “god damn this is a hot record. can I get it please???”

Benoit Carretier Tsugi Mag Fr: “beautiful like always with Smallville”

Debug (GER): “Eine fast typische Platte für Sten, aber auch eine typisch detroitige Platte, oder eben genau das was man sich erhofft auf Smallville. Klar, erhaben, sehr melodisch aber das völlig ohne Spielereien sondern einfach voller Seele. Markant in den Drumsounds, die hier fast wieder zur guten alten Rhythmusmaschine zurückfinden und dem unausweichlichen Gefühl, dass solche Tracks einfach von Mal zu Mal mit einem erwachen und immer schöner werden. bleed•••••”

DJ Gio MC-505: “It's definitely an homage of early detroit-techno, as the old Smallville releases. I've find my favourite on b-side: "Squares Part 3", an hypnotic trip with a massive Tr-808. ”

Giles Smith DJ MAG (UK): “Absolute killer from Sten. definitely one of my favourite and most consistent producers. "Squares" is moody, strong and captivating. Will play. ”

Josh Wink (Ovum Recordings): “Like it! Fan of the label and Sten! The A side cut is the one for me! deep and dark!”

Laurent Garnier (F-Com): “very good atmospheric tracks will play late in the tripppy mix”
