“Genre is overrated” is what Lawrence’s set all about. Grew up listening to every kind of music he can lay his hands on has molded his style into what it is today. If someone asked him what he play, he’ll likely said “I play house, electro, a bit of dub step, breaks, hip hop and anything in between. Basically anything that will move you.”
Lawrence is definitely not a new comer in the Indonesian dance scene. He started his dj career back in 1998 in a dingy Ethiopian restaurant in the heart of down town Los Angeles. He quickly established himself as premier drum‘n’bass dj in Los Angeles by holding resi-dency at club nights such as Cut & Paste and Phonix. In 2001 he made a move back to Indonesia. Not wasting anytime, he join forces with Javabass and co-created Jakarta‘s current longest running party series PHUNKTION. To avoid being pigeonholed into drum’n‘bass, he joined up with ELEKTRA666 management. Under this unique arrange-ment Lawrence have found freedom he sought in playing broader range of musics.

He has played all across Indonesia from small venue all the way to festival and even abroad from Singapore, Malaysia, to as far away as Los Angeles. Some of the highlights in his DJ career includes opening for Linkin’ Park infront of 20.000+ people, playing in a nationally televised MTV Get Nongkrong, rocking the main stage of Jakarta Movement 2004 and many more (all performed under his various disguises as Random, Lawrence or Electronic Groove). Lawrence have also shared decks with international acts such as Sul-tan & Tone Depth, DJ 19, Dillinja, Ken Ishii, Johan Cyber, James Zabiela, Rebecca Von Kalinowsky, Miss Nine, Cassy, Azzido Da Bass, Silencer, Dylan Rhymes, Tommy Lee, Tiefschwarz and more.
In 2006, he entered Heineken Thirst Studio as a virtual unknown to most but few and per-formed fairly well, tying for 1st place in point with crowd’s favorite and eventual winner In-nerlight (the judges couldn't decide the winner and had to let the crowd choose the win-ner).

Lawrence has also been nominated for Best Drum’n’Bass DJ at the 2006 RAVELEX Award, DJ of the Year at 2007 REDMA and more Drum’n’Bass DJ of the year in REDMA 2008. He was also nominated for Best DJ and Best Song at Paranoia Award in 2007.
