This guy is one of the nicest DJs I’ve met in my travels with making this film. Chris gave me a new appreciation for the hard sounds that can come from progressive Trance and I learned a lot on how the EDM genres can have so many layers in it’s BPM simplicity. It’s not exactly my favourite sound but the way that Mr. Lawrence presents it to his audience can be quite empowering. He treats his performance like a conductor of an orchestra. He is always raising his right hand when the beats build, signalling the orchestra of people on the dance floor to begin, and like clockwork – they do!
